Longhope is a traditional, thatched house which offers exceptionally well proportioned accommodation that looks out over carefully tended, private and mature gardens.
Believed to date from the mid 1700's, the property retains many of the original features, creating an inviting country feel, whilst later additions have ensured that the space is generous and light, with reception rooms ideal for entertaining.
A much loved family home for many years, Longhope is now ready for new owners to put their stamp on this unique character home and, with a versatile layout, there is even potential to create annexe space for extended family if needed.
From the pretty thatched porch, the Dining Hall provides an excellent entrance to the property, a large central space with more than enough room in which to dine formally and, with a glazed drinks cupboard on hand, and a wonderful Inglenook fireplace (currently not in use), is the perfect place for long Sunday lunches and lively dinner parties.
The Sitting Room is equally impressive, a vaulted and beamed ceiling, adding to the superb sense of generous space and, with a large fireplace (currently not in use) and French windows to the garden, it is a lovely room in which to relax throughout the seasons. A third reception room, also with French door to the garden, is an ideal as a study/snug/playroom.
The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is a sociable space with plenty of room to congregate and eat, as well as offering plenty of storage with a good range of hand made wooden units and integrated appliances including Miele ceramic hob and oven and Baumatic microwave. A separate Utility Room offers yet more appliance and storage space including a walk-in pantry. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor.
A large Games Room is an extensive, useful family space, ideal for a myriad of uses and with direct access from the garden also offers annexe or work from home potential.
On the first floor, the Master Bedroom includes excellent built-in bedroom furniture and has the benefit of en-suite bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Approached over a tarmacadam entrance drive , with ample private parking to the front of the property, there is also an attached heated double garage, with electric up and over door access from Stouts Lane and pedestrian door to the garden.
The Gardens are delightful, beautifully maintained and laid out to form a lovely verdant outlook from the house, with a paved terrace offering the perfect spot to dine or relax.
Carefully clipped evergreen hedging ensures privacy, whilst spacious lawns provide room to play and enjoy, and well stocked flower and shrub borders give colour and interest through the year.
