Ley Cottage is a handsome late Georgian house (Grade II Listed) which sits in the centre of this sought after village within a walled garden which extends to about half an acre. With commanding west facing views it is surrounded by beautiful scenery in the Bybrook Valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is a spectacular family home which will appeal to those attracted to houses with history and period detail. The rooms are elegant with high ceilings and large windows which provide great natural light. The accommodation is arranged around an impressive reception hall over two floors including an entrance hall, cloakroom, study, dining room, living room and conservatory all with impressive dual aspects giving a wealth of light throughout the day along with commanding views from all aspects. The kitchen has a very useful pantry, Aga and vaulted ceiling along with door to a west facing patio garden perfect to enjoy those morning coffees while enjoying those views. On the first floor is a spacious landing with dual aspects plus doors to two double bedrooms and the family bathroom, with a further staircase to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms and a shower room. Outside as mentioned the house sits in a wonderful wrap-around walled garden approaching half an acre, with a single garage along side a parking bay and two rooms beneath; one a store room and the other ideal home office/works space in need of completion to ones needs. The gardens themselves are terraced with a large lawn section on the lowest level along with ample vegetable patches plus patio areas to enjoy those views. In short with very few period handsome homes like this coming to the market we would advise an early visit to fully appreciated this property.
