    About this property

    • Leyfields is a very picturesque Grade II listed farmhouse of great style and character that has been in the same family for about fifty years. It is believed to date back to the 17th century, it has now evolved with additions in the 19th and 20th century into a substantial detached home, representing a wonderful opportunity for any incoming purchaser to create their dream home. The adaptable accommodation is arranged over three floors offering around 4973 square feet (Including outbuildings and garaging). The property benefits from a central position in the village near the pond and village sports clubs with lovely far reaching views.

      On the ground floor the accommodation consists of an entrance hall giving access to the study, dining room and sitting room. The sitting room has opening doors onto the terrace and doors into the snug. The kitchen has a range of timber units with a tiled floor and worktops. The ground floor accommodation is complete with a garden room and access to the cellar.

      To the first floor there is a large principal bedroom with built in wardrobes and bathroom, bedroom two has built in wardrobes, bedroom three and four have built in storage. The family bathroom completes the accommodation. To the second floor are three additional bedrooms all with fine views over the surrounding countryside.

      Leyfields sits on a generous plot of about an acre with beautiful countryside surrounding. The gardens are secluded and offer great potential for further landscaping. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a number of specimen trees. Leading from the house a number of terraces, paths and walls lead to more private elements of the gardens. To the rear of the property there is the double garage with up and over doors. The house also has a substantial barn, which is currently used for storage but has the potential for many uses subject to planning.
