An attractive detached family house in a delightful rural position
Burleigh Oaks Farmhouse is believed to have been built in the 1950s and has been extended in more recent years, providing some very comfortable and up to date accommodation. The elevations are clad with a number of climbing plants including rose, wisteria and jasmine. A paved terrace leads to the front door with a flat hood over which opens into an entrance lobby. There is a delightfully proportioned drawing room with a composite stone fireplace and French doors to the terrace. On the other side of the lobby is a sitting/dining room with French doors to the terrace. Beyond is a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room, which was fitted in 2006 with oak fronted floor and wall units and granite work surfaces, and has a 2 oven oil fired Aga, built in dishwasher, tiled floor and a shelved larder. Also on this level is the utility room which has been fitted similarly to the kitchen, a larder and bathroom.
On the first floor the principal bedroom has a walk in cupboard and an en suite bathroom which was completed this year and is delightfully appointed. There are 4 further bedrooms, all with built in cupboards and one of them has a wash hand basin. In addition, there is an equally well appointed shower room.
From a private lane a 5 bar gate leads through to a parking and turning area in front of the house. At the rear of the house there is a further entrance which gives access to the attached double garage.
Garden and grounds
The main area of garden lies to the south of the house where there is a paved terrace with built in barbecue with steps leading up onto the lawn. Around the lawn there are a number of flower and shrub borders including rhododendrons and magnolia. To the rear of the house there is a further area of lawn with shrub borders and a birch tree. To the east of the house there is an area of grass with orchard area, willow trees and copper beech, all of which are enclosed by evergreen trees. A 5 bar gate leads from here to the fenced paddock which has had some young trees planted and has a field shelter.
