    About this property

    • Bishopswood Leigh is a particularly attractive stone home with 4953 sq ft of accommodation. Set over three floors, it has the benefit of an elevated position with glorious far-reaching rural views.

      The origins of the home are thought to date from the early 1800's with later additions in the late 1890s, consequently there are a number of splendid features to include stone mullion windows, period fireplaces and sash windows.

      Combining Georgian and Victorian architectural styles, this superb family home has a plethora of versatile accommodation. The tall ceilings and full height windows create rooms ideal for entertaining, whilst lending themselves to family life.

      There is scope for multigenerational living due to annexe potential. The two-storey store/workshop could be converted to make a separate dwelling - subject to necessary planning permission, and would serve beautifully as guest accommodation.

      The ground floor accommodation is accessed via a welcoming reception hall, which leads to a 23ft double aspect sitting room, a study, formal dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and store room with adjoining cloakroom and pantry.

      The first floor comprises a principal bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom, with the four additional bedrooms sharing a family bathroom and separate wet room with cloakroom facilities.

      The second floor is a blank canvass with potentially three further bedrooms, a bathroom, cloakroom and a useful store room.

      Externally the house is set within attractive landscaped gardens of about 0.69 of an acre, including a pretty cottage style walled garden enclosed by well-stocked, colorful borders,and a small but productive kitchen garden.

      Behind the house there is a paddock with mature hedging together with generous parking.

    What I particularly love about Bishopswood Leigh is the ability to hide from the rest of the family in one of the superb workshops, working on the classic car! The views and location are added extra!
