Ley House is a well-loved family home, dating from the early 1930s and is being offered for sale for the first time in 25 years. During that time, considerable improvements have been made, including the addition of a surprisingly large, guest annexe. The house itself, offers a spacious ground floor with four generous reception rooms comprising a sitting room with open fire, dining room, sunroom with bi-fold doors which open onto the wrap around decked terrace, and a conservatory. In addition, there is a ground floor bedroom/office, and a shower room. The views, which stretch across the sweeping lawn and over the surrounding countryside are spectacular.

The first floor comprises a further three bedrooms, with the principal bedroom having an en suite bathroom, and again the views are glorious.
From the kitchen, there is a courtesy door which leads through the utility room to the adjoining guest annexe, which also has its own, independent external access.

The annexe offers superb accommodation, with a well-fitted kitchen/ dining room, sitting room, and a conservatory with retractable glass ceiling and panels. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with an en suite and the other is currently used as a study. In addition is a further shower room.

Stairs rise to the first floor, where there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The layout and space on offer within the annexe, makes it feel much more like a stand-alone house, and this is emphasised by the terracing, parking and gardens.

The gardens at Ley House are a particularly wonderful feature, being largely level and laid to lawn. There are mature shrubs and beds, two pretty lily
ponds, and a productive kitchen garden. Immediately to the rear of the house is a wraparound decked terrace, perfect for al fresco dining, and there is a similar decked terrace which leads off the annexe, both separated by mature screening. There is a greenhouse and large garden store. To the front of Ley House is a large, gravelled parking area and drive, and a garage.

Note: A number of years ago, the owners of Ley House and 14 neighbours, bought the large field that abuts all their gardens, ensuring the field would always remain as such. The ownership of the field remains with the houses and so the 1/15 share will come with the freehold of Ley House
