Ley House is a particularly surprising property which offers spacious family accommodation and about 5.4 acres in a completely tucked-away location in a very pretty hamlet surrounded by rolling countryside. Dating back to around

1835 the original brick and tiled house, which is fortuitously not listed, was significantly enhanced and extended by the current owners in 2010 to provide excellent family accommodation which is ideal for entertaining. The original part of the house incorporates a cosy sitting room with a fireplace, and a farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room plus a utility room with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom above. The wonderful extension now provides a vaulted dining/family room with a spacious adjoining drawing room which share a central woodburner. The design incorporates much full height glazing and there is a stylish loggia which provides the main everyday entrance into the dining/family room. Above, there is a wonderful master bedroom suite with a large balcony providing far reaching views across the pool, paddocks and countryside beyond. Further occasional guest accommodation/potential annexe is provided above the garage and office barn which also incorporates a temperature controlled wine room. It is essential to view Ley House internally to fully appreciate the extent of the lovely accommodation, together with its land and outbuildings.

The grounds of about 5.4 acres (2.16 ha) form an important feature. In addition, the property is located in a pretty & peaceful hamlet which is well placed for the daily amenities in Hadleigh, good schools and for commuting from either Manningtree or Colchester stations.
