About this property

  • Lea Hall is a well-proportioned period property comprising a Queen Anne principal rendered elevation with stone side and rear elevations which have evolved over the years.

    The property is set in a village location with delightful south westerly views over its expansive gardens. There are a selection of outbuildings and an adjacent former surgery to the house that provide potential for conversion subject to planning permission. The house is thought to date back to the early 18th century with 19th century additions.

    The layout is logical and has flexibility to adapt to modern living. Formal access is via the front elevation into an attractive staircase hall with study area to the rear. Day to day access is via a side porch to the kitchen or rear door adjacent to the conservatory. Lea Hall has a large double depth drawing room with double doors to the south westerly facing conservatory. The dining room has a large sash window with views to the fore. The kitchen and breakfast room occupy the east side of the house with side porch and a large pantry / utility room set at a slightly lower level.

    At first floor level there are four bedrooms all of a good size and one of which has an en suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom. At second floor level there are two large bedrooms.

    Outside
    Lea Hall has access via two driveways. To the front of the house is a traditional in and out driveway allowing parking to the front. There is a further service driveway allowing access to the rear of the property and its outbuildings. The gardens and grounds face predominantly south west including a large lawned area with half of its perimeter featuring stone walling. A further lower level gravelled projecting garden enjoys views over the neighbouring fields. An interesting man-made water feature meanders through the depth of the garden dividing the formal gardens from the all-weather surface tennis court and stunning Turkey Oak which provides an extraordinary canopy. There are further designated areas for an orchard and vegetable garden.

    Lea Hall has useful outbuildings including a decommissioned surgery adjacent to the house providing a studio set up and a stone outbuilding for log and machinery storage. A larger stone barn provides an open front garage together with workshop and and two first floor rooms which have interesting further potential.
