About this property
Lower Leesthorpe Farm is a handsome, double-fronted, Georgian farmhouse with elegant proportions throughout and extensive accommodation, sitting in an elevated position with far-reaching views and paddock land available by separate negotiation.
Enter the property into an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first-floor and doors providing access to the ground floor accommodation. To the right is a lounge with an impressive feature fireplace and built-in book casing. To the left is a beautifully-proportioned dining room, also with a feature fireplace. Both the lounge and dining room have beautiful multi-paned sash windows with stunning views to the front. Flowing off the dining room is the particularly impressive formal living room with an incredible marble fireplace and two alcoves on each side of the room providing window seats and areas to enjoy the views.
To the rear of the entrance hall is the farmhouse kitchen complete with quarry tile floor, beamed ceiling, exposed red-brick and an oil-fired aga. The kitchen provides plenty of worktop space and storage in the floor standing and wall mounted units, an integrated fridge, stainless-steel sink and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. There are three, large multi-pane sash windows looking out to the garden and allowing plenty of light.
A rear hallway leads off the kitchen giving access to a further reception room, a utility room and a downstairs WC. The utility room offers additional storage, a secondary sink and space and plumbing for white goods. To the end of the rear hall, a later extension to the property, is the further reception room. The room has glazing on all sides and to the part of the ceiling that floods the room with light and a set of bi-fold doors open to the patio creating a great flow from inside to out.
To the first floor there is a large central landing give access to four large bedrooms, one in each corner of the property and all with stunning countryside views.
The principal bedroom sits to the rear of the property with a dressing area and its own ensuite bathroom. Bedroom two sits to the front of the property and is also complemented by an ensuite bathroom. Bedrooms three and four are served by the family bathroom comprising a bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and low flush lavatory.
There is ample outside space with plenty of parking on the driveway. Mature gardens surround the property and are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of stocked borders. A huge flagstone patio wraps around the side and rear of the property providing a wonderful outdoor entertaining space. A mature spinney sits to the South-West of the property, providing year-round interest and protection from the prevailing wind.
