Leaton Lodge is a charming country house which stands in magnificent gardens and grounds. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, the house is easily accessible to the county town of Shrewsbury from where there are good road and rail links.
With origins as a 17th Century Coaching Inn, Leaton Lodge has organically grown over the years to the handsome house it is today. Wellpresented throughout, it offers comfortable and practical family living space along with elegant reception rooms for larger scale entertaining. The kitchen is of particular note having been recently extended and fitted with a bespoke cabinet made kitchen by Rickman Furniture and Fine Joinery with granite tops and curved cupboards. It has a four door AGA Range and extends into a pretty dining and sitting area from where French windows open to a paved terrace. It adjoins a cosy sitting room with a fireplace housing a wood burning stove.
The dining and drawing rooms both lead off the central hallway with a pretty Victorian oak staircase. Through the drawing room with its attractive fireplace and double aspect, is the garden room from where the south facing terrace and views of the parterre and rose gardens can be enjoyed. A traditional larder, fitted back hall, large utility/laundry room, garden hall and w.c and a cinema room in the former cellar completes the downstairs accommodation.
Upstairs there is an attractive landing off which are the principal bedrooms all with stunning views over the gardens and surrounding countryside and served by three family bathrooms. A second staircase leads up to the adjoining back landing and a versatile first floor study with a fireplace. A second floor bedroom accessed by its own staircase would make a good teenagers retreat.
To the side of the house is the former coach house, an attractive building which encompasses stables, garages and store with a loft above. They extend into a wing which now houses a garden store, gym and workshop. To the rear is the potting shed.
Gardens and grounds
Leaton Lodge stands surrounded by magical gardens established over twenty years by the current owner. The garden has been designed as a series of outdoor rooms which include Italian and rose gardens, productive kitchen garden, a magnificent wisteria walk and beautiful woodland. It enjoys a number of seating areas, hidden pathways, vistas and a cosy barbeque lodge with views across a wildlife pool and a breeze house for evening drinks. To the front is sweeping lawns with the hard tennis court behind pleached limes.
