Vendors' thoughts: "We have spent 19 wonderful years in Marston Meysey and Leah House, our second home here, has been our cherished haven for the past 10 years. We will miss it greatly when we move to be closer to our daughter and family, but we will always remember the happy times spent here with our neighbours, who have become friends, especially the monthly village lunches, coffee mornings, bbqs, race nights and talks in the village hall and not forgetting the enchanting Christmas Eve candlelit service in the village church."

In a nutshell: A gorgeous home with fantastic living space and a superb annex. Stunning!

Property Description

Leah House is a charming period village house which superbly blends original features and contemporary design. The house flows beautifully with bright and lightliving spaces and cosy corners. Careful thought and attention have been put into creating a home full of character yet also practical in its layout.

The kitchen/breakfast room is a wonderful room in which to cook up a feast. Equipped with all the necessary modern appliances, it offers ample worktop and discreet storage space.

The dining hall comes into its own when hosting guests and is a great room for dinner parties.

The sitting room, with open fireplace and French doors to the courtyard, doubles as a superb library and is a lovely space in which to retire to with a good book after a long day exploring the Cotswolds.

The extended living room, with under floor heating, is generously proportioned and
is bathed in an abundance of natural light. French doors lead to the decked terrace making this a great room for indoor/outdoor living in the Spring/Summer.
