Bruce Foxton lived in a picturesque part of the UK

Bruce Foxton is best known as a singer and songwriter.

The Jam musician owned a home in Wonersh, near Guildford in Surrey.

The 68-year-old owned the home for many years before parting with it.

The country mansion was put on the market in 2011 for an impressive £1.55million.

Bruce and his wife Pat, who died in 2009, extended the home after they purchased it.

They bought the property because of its big garden and added a lounge, two bedrooms and extended the kitchen. In total, the home had five bedrooms.

Wonersh is a commuter village that is located less than 30 miles from London.

Despite its proximity to the capital city, Wonersh is much more quiet and peaceful.

It has "beautiful, rolling countrysides" found in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is also near the town of Guildford which offers plenty to do.

The town is described as a "historical and vibrant county town" with a "quaint cobbled high street".

"Explore one of the town's many historic heritage sites, its vibrant shops or enjoy a stroll through picturesque riverside scenes," Visit Surrey added.

"You can catch a gig or show at one of the popular entertainment venues or theatres or pay a visit to one of the two leisure centres for an afternoon of family fun."

There are plenty of quiet towns which offer celebrities both privacy and opportunities to spend time in nature.

Bruce's The Jam bandmate, Paul Weller, also owned a property in Surrey. He lived in the rural area of Send in a four-bedroom home.

Mick Fleetwood owned a £4million property in a "magical" part of UK with "beautiful views".
