Soulbury, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 0DX
This characterful double fronted house set in open countryside with far reaching views is approached by a private road through farmland. There is a wealth of original features such as exposed beams and fireplaces. The current owners have transformed the property throughout their ownership refurbishing the second floor to create two guest suites and the converted barn area of the downstairs into an airy family room and library. Accessed via wrought iron gates the south facing garden is at the front of the property and very private. There is a large gravel forecourt to the side of the main house and in front of the separate annexe. The day to day entrance is a side door leading to a small entrance hall for coats which has a door leading to the kitchen.
