A tree-lined drive from York Lane follows the line of the paddock where it will meet the electric five-bar gate that will open to Leckby Barn. Here the gravelled drive will sweep in front of the house and double car port (including an EV point) with ample space for parking and turning. The private formal gardens and extensive paved terracing are orientated to face south and west across open countryside and will be concealed from the driveway behind a handsome brick wall and double timber gates. The paved terrace will have raised beds planted with sculptural shrubs and will wrap around two sides of the house providing superb opportunities for al fresco dining. In addition, a brick-enclosed courtyard will benefit from afternoon and evening sunshine. There is a paddock to the front and to the rear, and the whole will be bounded by post and rail fencing.

The property is highly convenient for access to the A64 (two miles) connecting to the A1M (25 miles) and the many amenities of the historic city of York including the independent schools and railway station connecting to London Kings Cross in less than two hours. Flaxton itself, little more than half a mile to the north, has wide grassy verges, a church, village hall, two public houses and a children’s nursery. Sandburn Hall Golf Club with its accompany fine-dining restaurant and York Golf Club in Strensall are both about two miles from Leckby Barn.
