Little Leys House is situated in the attractive and tranquil rural village of Burmington close to the market town of Shipston on Stour. More amenities can be found in the Cotswold towns of Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Norton. The larger centres of Banbury, Oxford and Stratford upon Avon have more extensive shopping, leisure and educational amenities. A regular main line service runs from Moreton in Marsh to Oxford and London, Paddington taking 33 and 90 minutes respectively and from Banbury to London Marylebone taking 50 minutes.
Little Leys House is a pretty double fronted period village house which has been recently extended and renovated throughout to a very high standard.
Constructed of traditional red brick under a slate roof, with beautiful hardwood sash windows, Little Leys House is a spaciously proportioned and well laid out family house.
The property presents in excellent order with close attention to detail incorporating many original features including exposed beams, refurbished panelled doors and Victorian cast iron fireplaces in the bedrooms. A contemporary finish using ceramic tiled flooring completes the kitchen and bathrooms.
The accommodation comprises a sitting room and dining room, both to the front with southerly views across the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is bright and spacious having solid wood handmade units with Italian Basalt work tops and a range of high quality built in appliances including a Miele LPG gas 5 ring hob and oven and Maytag stainless steel American fridge/freezer with ice maker. Of particular note is a solid wood glazed dresser which complements the solid oak central island. Hardwood French doors lead out onto a terrace with splendid views to the west towards Barcheston, Willington and Shipston. Off the kitchen is a well-served large utility room and cloakroom with a door to the rear private and sunny, enclosed courtyard.
Stairs rise to the bright and airy master bedroom with original cast iron fireplace and en suite shower room. Two further double bedrooms and an elegant bathroom complete the first floor accommodation. The superb bedroom/ bathroom suite on the second floor provides a sophisticated finish to this well designed house enjoying magnificent and distant views to the countryside beyond. There are excellent views which extend from every bedroom window across the undulating Warwickshire countryside.
The pretty walled front garden is well stocked with established borders and lies to the south of the house being completed by a hornbeam hedge to the road. There is a picket fence and gate which open onto the bbq terrace which further leads round to the enclosed gravelled courtyard to the rear.
To the west of the house is a separate gravelled parking space for several cars.
