THE PROPERTY Eleigh House is a most attractive Georgian style residence built about 15 years ago and has been further improved and updated to a high standard over recent years. Presenting colour washed rendered elevations with front symmetrical fenestration, under a twin gabled, plain tiled roof, the property enjoys very well proportioned and deceptively spacious accommodation throughout. The ground floor accommodation has been altered and improved to provide spacious, predominantly open plan living and the gardens have been beautifully landscaped and offer a high degree of privacy. The reception hall features the stairs leading to the first floor and has a porcelain tiled floor. The large open plan kitchen/breakfast and living room area measures 30' x 20' with the kitchen area comprehensively fitted with a bespoke Nolte kitchen with a wide range of base and eye level units, Silestone work surfaces and matching island, integrated appliances including Miele twin ovens, steamer and microwave and AEG induction hob, full length fridge, full length freezer and dishwasher. The porcelain tiled floor is laid throughout and leads into the living room area, which is fitted with an inset wood burning stove, has a side aspect window and two sets of French doors lead to the rear garden. An opening leads into the dining room, which has an open fireplace and a stone effect surround. There are oak floor boards and windows to the front and side aspects. The utility room is fitted with a single drainer stainless steel sink, a range of base and eye level units, space and plumbing for appliances, boiler cupboard, porcelain tiled floor and a door to the garden. There is also a good-sized study, which has a dual aspect and a cloakroom with porcelain tiled floor and understairs storage cupboard. On the first floor the galleried landing gives access to four double bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying an en-suite and range of bespoke wall to wall fitted wardrobes. Bedroom two also has an en-suite and fitted wardrobes and bedroom three has fitted wardrobes. There is also a good-sized family bathroom. OUTSIDE Eleigh House is approached over a large block paved driveway leading to a double garage with parking area in front. The front gardens are enclosed by a brick wall and fencing and lead to a large side area of garden, which has been predominantly reserved as a vegetable plot and in turn access leads to the large rear garden, which has been extensively and beautifully landscaped with many rare and specimen trees including a foxglove tree, wedding cake tree, limes trees, a plane tree and a Japanese paper tree. There is an abundance of mature planting and hornbeam hedging. Immediately to the rear of the property is a large terraced area with a wisteria covered pergola, making an ideal alfresco dining area. The picturesque gardens abut woodland to the rear and enjoy a high degree of privacy. In all around 0.29 of an acre.
