An imposing country house

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 has recently been subject to a significant refurbishment programme particularly the bathrooms. 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 sitting room with bay window and open fireplace with stone surround, opposite is the drawing room with a bay window and an open fireplace. At the back of the hall is the dining room with bay window, French doors to the garden and a fireplace. 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 alongside a door to the dining room. 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. From the hall, stairs rise to the first floor landing, off which are 4 double bedrooms, 3 of which are en-suite, a study, separate shower room and a walk-in airing cupboard. The stairs continue to the second floor, where there are three further bedroom suites, a playroom, and a gym.

This property has 1.6 acres of land.


The property stands in approximately 1.6 acres of mainly lawned garden which surround the house and 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. Also within the garden is a heated swimming pool with retractable cover and adjacent cabin style changing room with sauna and sitting area. Attached to the house is a single garage.
