Property description



"take an immersive 3-d tour of this impressive property" Imposing 1926 built Dart & Francis detached house which enjoys elevated views, with spacious and character filled accommodation, plus lovely sized gardens, ample off-road parking & a detached garage.

Longfleet House is a most attractive high quality detached residence, built in 1926 by the well-known local firm Dart & Francis Ltd, occupying a lovely town edge setting with southerly views over its large secluded lawned garden.

The house has a real feel of quality with much use of natural oak including doors, picture rails & the staircase. The accommodation includes four double bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom, there is also a study/5th bedroom which would make a perfect en-suite shower room to the master if desired (plumbing already under the floorboards). The views from the three largest bedrooms are lovely, with the master and 3rd bedroom also enjoying built in wardrobes.

Downstairs we have an oak filled entrance hall leading to a beautiful open-plan kitchen diner, complete with Belfast sink, Rangemaster cooker, granite worktops and a centre island with 40mm worktops & hidden power points. To the dining end is an open fire, plus double doors to the fantastic sun room which runs along the southern end of the house looking out over the gardens. The sun room is linked to a spacious living room (6.7m / 22ft) which again has an open fire. There is also a ground floor bath and shower room, plus a separate WC and a utility room. The whole property has mains gas central heating via a combi-boiler, with backup pressurised hot water cylinder.

Outside we have a good sized parking area, with space to turn and hold a number of vehicles, there is also a substantial detached garage. The main garden faces south, is very private with mature trees in place and can be accessed from both sides of the house. To the west is a space for a hot tub and also a summerhouse which dates back to when the house was built some 90 years ago, with a pretty pond in front. There is also a terrace with views south across the valley.
