DESCRIPTION Leaways is a characterful detached period home nestled within a peaceful valley setting on the edge of the village of Horsley. The cottage displays a wealth of charm and character throughout featuring exposed beams and stonework.
The fully furnished accommodation spans over three floors with both the ground floor and first floor spilling into the garden. The ground floor is entered through a stable door to the impressive bespoke kitchen which showcases an Aga, island breakfast bar, built-in fridge and dishwasher.
Off the kitchen there is a useful utility room. In addition, there is a versatile room currently
utilised as a snug open plan to an office which lends itself as a ground floor bedroom complete with an en-suite shower room. Upstairs, there are two good-sized reception rooms with oak flooring. The dining room has a charming Juliet balcony overlooking the valley opposite, whilst the living room features a wood burning stove and opens to the conservatory. On the top floor, there are two vaulted ceiling double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and a modern bathroom.
Leaways has the advantage of off-road parking for several cars within a private bay set off the
lane. The property is hidden behind a high stone wall which provides the front lower level garden with an excellent degree of privacy. Laid to paved stone terrace with raised planter
borders, the lower level garden has steps up to a further stone terrace arranged off the
conservatory, perfect sitting out in the sunshine. There is a further lawn area which overlooks
the valley with mature shrub borders and trees. As a whole, the gardens enjoy the sun all day
with east and south facing aspects. There is good storage within the gardens including a
summerhouse at the front which benefits from power and a lean-to style store at the rear with electricity.
