Burleigh Farm is believed to date back to the early 18th century and certain external design features such as the blue brick quoins, feature brickwork around the windows and mullioned cross windows are typical of this period. Internally the house benefits from many period features and several of the rooms have extremely attractive period fireplaces with decorative surrounds. The windows to the original part of the house have largely been updated but have been replaced with bespoke replicas of the original leaded windows thereby retaining the inherent character of the property and adding to the attractive presence of the house.
There is little doubt that the house is ideal for family living and offers spacious and well proportioned accommodation over three floors.
The kitchen is found to the rear of the house in a single storey extension and as a result has a splendid vaulted ceiling with additional high level windows. Adjacent to the kitchen is a useful utility room and WC. Beyond the kitchen, in the original property are three reception rooms, one of which runs the full width of the house. These reception rooms all have the benefit of open fires with attractive fireplaces and could be utilised in a variety of manners dependent on the buyers’ requirements.
The bedroom accommodation is spread over two floors. To the first floor are three bedrooms, one of which has the advantage of an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. To the second floor, and ideal as a self contained children's area, are two bedrooms a large landing which could be utilised as a study area and a shower room.
Externally the property has the benefit of a large patio area which sits outside the kitchen door and is well protected from the elements by both the house and the adjacent farm building.
Extensive lawned gardens are found to three sides of the house and the sweeping drive divides the lawns. The gardens are surrounded by mature hedgerows or a sandstone wall and as such offer a private area to enjoy whilst still allowing appreciation of the far-reaching views over the surrounding farm land. There are several small borders with a selection of plants and shrubs but the gardens have clearly been designed with ease of management in mind and will therefore allow buyers the opportunity to enhance them to their own specifications.
Whilst currently the lawns are open plan and mown there is little doubt that they could be fenced to provide either grazing for a pony or an orchard area.
A single garage stands to the rear of the house and whilst it could be retained for its current use this could also be adapted to provide office or work space or a children’s playroom, subject to the necessary planning permissions.
