Leven House is a late 18th century, Grade II listed family home, occupying a wonderful central Stokesley position within delightful gardens. With views towards the Cleveland Hills, the flexible accommodation includes three well-proportioned reception rooms and a warm and welcoming family kitchen / breakfast room. To the first floor, in addition to the luxury bathroom, there are two magnificent bedroom suites, one of which is currently used as a dressing room but could easily be converted back to a bedroom and a third with its own dressing room. The second floor has an additional two bedrooms, one with en suite facilities. Adjacent to the main house and with its own access is the annexe, which has been let out continuously for a number of years. The annexe would benefit from some updating and would make the perfect rental apartment for additional income, family member or guest accommodation. Overall, Leven House represents an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a significant period home in an excellent position in central Stokesley.

To the first floor, in addition to the luxury bathroom, there are two magnificent bedroom suites, one of which is currently used as a dressing room but could easily be converted back to a bedroom and a third with its own dressing room.

The annexe would benefit from some updating and would make the perfect rental apartment for additional income, family member or guest accommodation. Overall, Leven House represents an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a significant period home in an excellent position in central Stokesley.

Accommodation

A welcoming entrance hall and rear reception hall mean that, whichever way you enter Leven House, a feeling of grandeur awaits. The main living and drawing room, with exposed beams, wooden floors and impressive fireplace could be a wonderful formal reception room or an equally comfortable family room in which to enjoy the roaring fire. The dining room, again with timber floor and grand central fireplace, provides the perfect environment for dinner guests or family occasions, whilst the relaxed kitchen breakfast and dining room has all the facilities a modern family needs, with a stunning outlook over the rear gardens. A cellar for wine storage and essentials, along with a guest cloakroom and w.c, completes the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor has two simply magnificent bedrooms with dressing rooms and a luxurious family bathroom. Some minor amendments to the layout could transform this floor into three bedrooms if desired. The second floor could provide wonderful guest accommodation with its two large bedrooms, one of which includes an en suite bathroom.

The Annexe

The annexe, which comprises a living room, kitchen, three bedrooms and a bathroom, represents an opportunity for a rental income in the region of £8,000 per annum. Alternative uses could be additional family accommodation as well as commercial use or integration back into the main house. Having recently been vacated after a long period of rental, the property would benefit from a programme of decoration and modernisation.

Externally

To the front of the property, a large walled boundary provides privacy, with gate pillars opening to the block paved driveway, which offers parking for several vehicles and leads to the detached double garage.

The walled rear garden is well maintained and thoughtfully designed with a variety of formal and informal spaces including a central feature lawn bordered by mature hedging and herbaceous borders. A summer house sits partway down the garden and provides a glorious spot in which to sit and enjoy some peace and tranquillity. There is a large timber storage shed for all your essential equipment and garden furniture and the large gate at the bottom of the garden provides vehicular access should this be required. For morning coffee and those sunny afternoons and evenings, an entertaining patio terrace sits immediately outside the kitchen and rear reception hall.

Tenure

The property is freehold and will be offered with vacant possession on completion.
