A wonderful village house of considerable charm and character, with extensive accommodation, a range of outbuildings, tennis court and wonderful established gardens.
Dating from approximately 1860, Leycourt is a charming period farmhouse constructed from attractive red brick elevations under slate and pantile roofs. In 1984 the current vendor added a two storey extension to the front of the property to create a drawing room and superb principal bedroom. The work was carried out to an extremely high standard with materials sourced to ensure the extension blends seamlessly with the original building.
The well-proportioned accommodation extends to an impressive 6,162 sq ft (572.5 sq m approximately) and offers tremendous versatility, suitable for a variety of uses and is flooded with light from large sash windows. Although the property has been beautifully maintained over the years, it provides prospective purchasers with a wonderful opportunity to acquire a substantial family home which can be reconfigured to their own particular taste and standard
