**Own a piece of Heswall history – Sandstone Cottage – Built in circa 1619 – Sympathetically Extended – Must View!**

Once in a while a unique property comes to the market which commands your attention. Leaburn is certainly one of those properties. Built originally on the site of an old Viking Longhouse and part of the ‘original Gayton’ – this property would have originally been constructed of medieval timber frame before being later rebuilt in stone.

Originally part of the Glegg family estate, this is one of the oldest properties in the area and this is evident from the character on display – from the thick stone walls to the slate window ledges and the beamed ceilings! There is even a piece of Saxon stone that forms a part of the kitchen wall!

The owner has restored and maintained the property beautifully and even EXTENDED the property sympathetically with reclaimed sandstone.

In brief the accommodation affords: entrance porch, lounge, snug/dining room, kitchen. There are two upstairs bedrooms and a bathroom. One bedroom is currently used as a ‘Cattery’ and access comes off the dining room via staircase.

Leaburn boasts modern essentials such as double glazed windows and gas central heating but retains all of its period character features. With a private front and side garden with space for a patio area.
