Lea House is set in an attractive and private situation, just off the A464 which gives easy access to the main motorway network (M54, J3 is about 3 miles to the north), or to Wolverhampton and the West Midlands conurbation. Albrighton is a popular village with a number of shops, pubs, restaurants, a medical practice and renowned schools. In the private sector, Birchwood Preparatory School is within 1.9 miles, Wolverhampton Grammar School 7.4 miles, and Shrewsbury School 24.1 miles. Albrighton has a railway station under 2 miles from the property with direct trains to Shrewsbury/Birmingham and onwards.
Lea House is a beautifully presented country house, built in 1920
to a Georgian style. The current owners have given great thought to the refurbishment and remodelling during their time to provide accommodation which is practical for modern day living but retains the elegance of well proportioned rooms for entertaining.
The impressive reception hall is a focal point of the house, with the beautifully proportioned drawing room, study/sitting room and dining room leading off. The extensive bespoke kitchen opens out through French windows to the garden with its own intimate breakfast area. On the first floor are 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, 3 of which are en suite.
The house is set in beautiful gardens and grounds offering complete seclusion and privacy.
The property is approached from Patshull Road through electronically operated gates, sweeping down to the front of the house and bordered by the gardens to either side. An entrance hall leads into the main galleried reception hall, with a fine and delicate staircase rising to the first floor. The drawing room is a fine, formal entertaining room with French windows out to the garden. In the centre is an Adams style fireplace. The study/sitting room is a more intimate room, used by the owners as a library.
The formal dining room, again with French windows out to the
garden, leads off the kitchen/breakfast room with granite worktops, an extensive range of wall and base units, separate Welsh dresser and large tall cupboards, an integral dishwasher and a full height fridge/freezer. There is a long island unit which incorporates more storage cupboards and a wine rack, as well as a breakfast bar and a cream oil-fired Aga. The utility room is in similar style housing the washing machine and dryer above together with an electric oven and ceramic hob. A rear lobby leads off to a further cloakroom and on into the office.
On the first floor there is a dual aspect master bedroom, leading
through an archway to the dressing room, with shelving and hanging rails and a large en-suite bathroom with both bath and separate shower room. There are 4 further double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom.
A staircase leads to a large, as yet largely undeveloped, open room which could provide either further bedroom accommodation or a leisure/media room.
Over the years very considerable thought has been given to laying out the gardens and grounds, which provide both privacy and enduring enjoyment throughout the year. Strategic planting and layout with a series of interlinking areas provides intrigue and enjoyment with a stunning back drop of mature trees. An outstanding feature of the garden is a tree house and viewing platform, incorporated into two oak trees and linked by a roped walkway, all overlooking a large, ornamental lake.
To the rear of the house is large terraced area offering wonderful informal outdoor din ing and a secluded outlook onto the cottage garden area. Beyond a post and rail fencing, there is also an orchard with a variety of fruit trees and a vegetable patch. To the rear of the property there are three separate stables and pony paddock with several gates. The property also benefits from a 26ft integral garage which leads on to the stable block offering the possibility to reconfigured in a number of ways to provide either loose boxes, workshop or general storage.
