A sizeable, well-presented detached family house with large gardens and much potential found in the highly sought-after village of Speldhurst
Dating back to the 1940s, with later additions, Longacre is a substantial, detached, much-loved family home, which has been in our clients' ownership for over twenty years. The house provides spacious, well-proportioned, well-presented, family-friendly accommodation, catering to the demands and needs of modern family living, whilst still offering a wonderful opportunity for a new family to put their stamp on the house moving forward.
The ground floor offers a very flexible layout with generous reception space that can be arranged and purposed to suit individual needs. The large sitting room enjoys the delightful view over the gardens to the rear and has an attractive feature fireplace, with sliding glazed doors opening onto the paved terrace and gardens beyond. There is a further reception room which is currently used as a more informal playroom/snug and a very useful study area is tucked off the reception hall.
The open plan kitchen/dining/family room has a range of attractive base and wall units that provide good storage and preparation space. This lovely hub and heart of the home also leads to the playroom, the conservatory and sitting room.
A good-sized utility room and pantry adjoins the kitchen and leads to the garage. There are two WCs on the ground floor, completing the accommodation.
The first floor is home to the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, whilst the further four bedrooms are served by the family bathroom and shower room.
Outside - Longacre enjoys a large, south-facing garden to the rear, with a paved terrace spanning the rear of the house which can be accessed from both the sitting room and conservatory, the terrace is well screened from neighbouring property and ideal for outdoor entertaining on a small or large scale. The large expanse of level lawns beyond are interspersed with a delightful selection of mature plants and trees, there is a productive fruit and vegetable garden and plenty of space for child's play.
Longacre provides gated driveway parking for several cars to the front of the house together with an integral double garage (of a further 308 sq ft).
