Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Burmington Leys dates from the mid 19th Century and has many well-proportioned rooms designed in a classic 4 square layout arranged on three floors with extensive cellarage beneath.

The majority of the principal rooms are dual aspect and the property has many traditional features including sash windows, high ceilings and open fireplaces. The property will benefit from some updating particularly the bathrooms. Extensive planning permission was granted to extend and re-model the ground floor, as well as to build a significant extension and cloister linked garage block, with accommodation above. This has now expired. More details are available from the agent.

The house is approached off the village lane through a pair of wrought iron gates, over a gravelled drive which leads to a turning area at the front of the property. The front door is entered through a portico porch which opens into a gracious hall off which are the principal reception rooms, a cloakroom and a staircase to the first floor. The reception rooms comprise: a drawing room with bay window and open fireplace with stone surround, opposite is the dining room with a bay window and an open fireplace. At the back of the hall is the sitting room with bay window, French doors to the garden and a fireplace with wood burning stove. At the rear of the house is the kitchen with a Chinese slate floor and fitted kitchen units with 4 oven oil fired Aga, and a door to the back stairs. Another door leads into the large utility room with built in storage, oil fired condensing boiler, walk in larder, plumbing for washing machine and a door to the back courtyard. A door beside the kitchen leads down to the extensive cellars.

Burmington Leys is set the on the edge of the rural hamlet of Burmington, with panoramic views over surrounding farmland. The village is two miles south of Shipston on Stour and six miles to the north west of Moreton in Marsh. Both towns provide for most everyday needs, whilst the larger centres of Banbury, Stratford upon Avon and Oxford have more extensive shopping, leisure and educational amenities. A regular main line service runs from Banbury to London Marylebone taking from 55 minutes and also from Moreton in Marsh to Oxford and London Paddington taking 35 and 100 minutes respectively.

The property stands in approximately 1.6 acres of mainly lawned garden which contains a variety of mature trees and shrubs. In the north west corner planning permission (which has now expired) has been granted for a stable block, which can be accessed by a right of way over the rear drive. In addition attached to the house is a single garage.
