A delightful property with very attractive grounds.
Leighton Banastre is a handsome Georgian property and the Grade II listing records it as being one of a row of three houses, late 18th century with later alteration by George Cripps.
It has mellow brick elevations beneath a slate roof and sash windows. The front door sits beneath an ornate wooden porch and opens into an impressive reception hall extending into a bay on the north west elevations.
Further reception rooms include an elegant first floor drawing room (currently used as a bedroom) as well as a dining room and sitting room. The kitchen has a four oven Aga, a tiled floor and a play room beyond. This provides a link with the indoor swimming pool.
The first floor has an impressive principal bedroom (the original drawing room) which overlooks the garden and there are six further bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The gardens are a wonderful feature of the property. The private drive from The Parade runs beside a rectangular paddock linking to the gardens and grounds, with a number of magnificent trees.
There are extensive lawns, a walled courtyard garden, herbaceous borders, shrubs and plants, and a path offering a pleasant walk around the property. At the rear of the house is a range of useful outbuildings, providing storage and garaging which can be accessed via Brocklands Road.
Please note: the garden pots and statutory are excluded from the fixtures/fittings.
Parkgate front has a great choice of eateries, and there are lovely walks nearby. Leighton Banastre is brilliantly positioned in being tucked away from the front, but with superb access to all the amenities Parkgate and Neston have to offer.Charlie Kannreuther
