Oakleigh is an impressive and elegant house forming part
of a former manor house believed to date back to the early
1840's. The house was divided in to two dwellings in 1979 with the current owners converting Oakleigh in to the house seen today. The accommodation retains character features such as the ceiling rose, moulded cornicing and picture rails in the drawing room, combined with an attractive bespoke kitchen, 4 good bedrooms, a delightful inner courtyard and stunning gardens. This all makes the house ideal for a family or anyone looking to acquire a quality period property in a semi-rural setting.
On entering the house an enclosed porch leads through to
the hallway. There is a ground floor cloakroom with space
for a washing machine and dryer, making this a useful utility space. The hallway opens to the dining room which has a French door to the inner courtyard. The kitchen has a bespoke range of white country style floor and wall units with a central island unit. There is space for a range style cooker with integrated appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. The elegant drawing room is a particular feature of the house, featuring exposed wooden flooring, a log burner with stone surround, a pair of arched French doors and ornate cornicing, ceiling rose and picture rails. There is a large conservatory that overlooks the gardens to one side and the inner courtyard to the other. This leads to a small study. To the first floor, the principal bedroom has a dual aspect and reflects the period style of the house. There are three further bedrooms, one of which features a corner shower unit and wash basin, making it ideal as a guest room. Inaddition there is a family bathroom, as well as an additional cloakroom.
Oakleigh has grounds of about 0.4 acres, approached by a
gravelled driveway leading to the twin garages. The gardens wrap around the side of the house and are part
walled, with a feature wall separating the gardens in to
two areas. These two areas are mostly laid to lawn with
attractively presented flower beds, boarders and fruit trees. The gardens back on to open farmland.
