    About this property

    • Langford House is constructed of brick under a tiled roof, built in a period style by the present owners exemplified by the use of exposed oak timbers internally (not structural), the use of oak throughout the house and leaded light windows. A front door opens into an entrance hall with a limestone tiled floor continuing into the dining room, cloakroom, kitchen, utility room and conservatory. Doors off the hall open into the drawing room with a wide brick fireplace, leading through to the sitting room/games room, both of which have doors to the rear garden. Off the inner hall is the dining room, a cloakroom and a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room fitted in a French style with a range of wall and floor units with granite worktops, a Lacanche range and a central island unit with a door through into the conservatory. The remaining ground floor accommodation could be used as a self-contained annexe with interconnecting doors with the main house. It has a separate access and therefore can be incorporated into the house or used as an annexe. This accommodation comprises a living room, a gym, a study, a cloakroom and a utility room with a door to outside. The first floor is reached by a staircase up to the landing. At one end of the house is the principal bedroom suite comprising bedroom with doors opening out onto a shallow balcony, an en suite bathroom and two further dressing rooms. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and a family bathroom.

      Langford House is approached over a gated in/out gravel drive and a central lawn area with a variety of mature trees. A fork off the drive continues to the side of the house to garaging (a steel structure and insulated), opposite which is a range of weatherboard and tiled outbuildings comprising an open storage area, machinery store and tool shed. The main garden extends away from the house, laid to lawn with beds of shrubs and a variety of mature trees. A particular feature of the garden is a small fishing lake, well stocked with carp (Mirror, Common and Leather), roach and rudd.
