Owners Comments

"Michaelmas Leah has been a happy, light filled home for the last 25 years providing flexible accommodation for changing family needs. The woods at the rear provide a quiet, tranquil feel to the garden and encourage a variety of bird life. We have appreciated the convenience of village shops and also the proximity to Romsey with its many facilities."
