Attractive village home with detached garden bungalow
Long Dene House is an attractive detached family home superbly located in a village road. The accommodation is impressive with good sized reception rooms, luxury fitted kitchen and five bedrooms. Additionally there is a garage and outbuildings including a wonderful two bedroom self-contained old school house.
A covered entrance porch opens into the reception hall with a cloakroom and shower. Oak flooring extends to the reception rooms with stone flooring in the kitchen and utility areas. To the rear of the house, giving stunning garden views, is the main living accommodation and kitchen/breakfast/dining room, all with underfloor heating. The area is open plan but is cleverly designed with two sets of double doors between the two reception rooms if privacy is required. The rooms flow well and are perfect for family living. The beautifully appointed kitchen is the hub of the house and is flooded with natural light from the vaulted ceiling with Velux windows and a double height timber framed window. French doors open on to the terrace and there is plenty of room for a table. The kitchen enjoys a comprehensive range of luxury units complemented by granite worktops. A central island gives additional storage and a breakfast bar for informal dining. Appliances include a gas fired double AGA, combi and fan ovens, steam oven, dishwasher, coffee machine, full height separate fridge and freezer. The adjacent room, currently used as a play room but could equally be used as a dining room, has sliding doors on to the terrace and garden. Mirroring the kitchen with its vaulted ceiling, Velux windows and double height timber framed window is the spacious sitting room. French doors on two sides open to the garden bringing the outside in. To the front is a further reception room, again with French doors on to the terrace area, and a fireplace with an open fire. Across the hall is the utility room, with underfloor heating, which is large with plenty of storage. Integrated appliances include a built-in fridge, freezer and dishwasher, with space for further appliances. An inner hallway lies adjacent which is a useful practical space and gives door access to the garden. There is fitted storage and the area works perfectly as a coat and boot room. There is also a walk in pantry providing additional kitchen storage.
Stairs from the reception hall lead to the first floor landing with storage and an airing cupboard. The principal bedroom suite enjoys a balcony overlooking the garden giving the perfect spot to relax, and a wall of fitted wardrobes providing ample storage. The well-appointed en suite is generous with a double width bath with built in TV over and a large shower with twin shower heads. There are four further bedrooms, two with en suite bath/shower rooms and two served by the family bathroom.
The property is approached through electric gates over a block brick driveway with parking for several cars. There is a triple garage incorporating a home/office. Adjacent to the garage is a large double shed useful for additional garden storage.
Of particular note is the substantial self-contained bungalow, originally used as the village school. This property is charming, full of character and history, retaining many original features. The property has been thoughtfully designed internally to provide a lovely large reception space and kitchen area, two bedrooms, bathroom and four sets of French doors opening on to the terrace outside.
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower borders and beds, and features a gazebo with a hot tub. The garden is enclosed with mature trees and shrubs providing a good deal of privacy and seclusion. A generous slate terrace wraps around the house giving several areas for seating or outside entertaining.
