Leylands is a superb and deceptively spacious detached family house built by ‘Connors’ in the early 1900’s, who were renowned local builders and responsible for many of the fine houses in the area. Extended and improved over the years, the house now provides spacious and flexible family accommodation with many period features including sash windows, deep skirting boards and high corniced ceilings. There are many notable features throughout the property some of which include the following:
• A superb covered verandah which leads to the front door and opens into an impressive hallway with doors to all of the principal rooms and cloakroom. The drawing room has feature sash windows with a further window to the side, fitted bookshelves, open fireplace and a door opening to the verandah. An elegant lounge/family room has a large bay window, coal effect fire and door to a large store room which has its own entrance.
• The kitchen is well fitted with an extensive range of floor and wall mounted units and integrated electric appliances with numerous windows looking out to the gardens, a door to the cellar which houses the boiler and storage cupboards and the breakfast room has ample space for a table and chairs. A spacious dining room off the hall has a large bay window with a door opening out to the garden.
• On the first floor, the spacious landing has fantastic outlooks of the garden and beyond. The principal and guest bedrooms are both dual aspect good size rooms with large sash windows to the front. There are three further bedrooms on this floor two of which are good size rooms and the smaller currently used as a study and all are well served by a family bathroom with a separate WC. On the second floor there is a large attic/ playroom with fitted book shelves and storage cupboard, this could easily be converted to a bedroom with an en suite (subject to the necessary consents). There is an adjacent bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle and a smaller bedroom.
Leylands is situated in the highly regarded ‘Warren’ area on the west side of Crowborough. The house enjoys far reaching views over the Ashdown Forest which is less than half a mile away.

The house is located close to a number of excellent schools and educational facilities for children of all ages.
