Full description

With accommodation in excess of 5,200 sq ft to include 5 reception rooms and 7 bedrooms, combined with its accessibility to both Felsted and New Hall School, this is the perfect family home.

Dating from the 1600's, Leighs Lodge is a timber framed country house of plastered elevations with pargetting under a peg tiled roof. The house is listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance.

The bright and spacious accommodation radiates from a fine reception hall principally over two storeys with further accommodation on the second floor. The main reception rooms enjoy views across the front gardens whilst to the rear, the study, kitchen/breakfast room and office open on to the rear walled garden and swimming pool area. On the first floor the master bedroom occupies the western end of the house enjoying its own bathroom and dressing room with the remaining accommodation arranged off the landing. On the second floor is an excellent addition to the accommodation with a large central games room and bedrooms either end benefiting from their own en suite bathrooms.

The house stands in mature grounds extending to about 1.7 acres, although there is an additional 1.7 acres available by separate negotiation. The gardens are imaginatively landscaped and well-tended with sweeping open lawns; numerous mature specimen trees and a fine ornamental lake overhung with a magnificent weeping willow. The grounds provide a fine setting for this most attractive family house.

Within the grounds are a useful range of outbuildings together with a swimming pool and patio area.

Leighs Lodge sits amongst open farmland between the villages of Felsted and Great Leighs in the Parish of Felsted; conveniently located in central Essex. Everyday amenities are available at both Great Leighs and Felsted; both offering convenience stores, post offices and public houses. Great Dunmow, with its supermarkets and bustling high street of independent stores, is just over six miles away whilst the City of Chelmsford offering a full and comprehensive range of commercial, shopping and entertainment amenities is within 10 miles to the South.

Chelmsford Railway Station provides a regular service to London Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of 36 minutes. Stansted Airport, 13 miles to the west, caters for domestic flights and international destinations beyond.

The area is known for a number of excellent schools, both state and private. Chelmsford boasts two grammar schools, Chelmsford County High School and King Edward VI; and there is also New Hall and the Felsted Schools.

The area is well served for leisure amenities including a number of golf courses together with Chelmsford City Racecourse. The coast with its numerous sailing clubs, scenic walks and abundant bird watching can be found to the east at Maldon and on the River Blackwater.
