About this property

  • Approached via a wooded area, Longdyke is an exceptional character house set in a semi rural location.

    Extensively refurbished and maintained by the current owners whilst retaining the charm and character features one would expect of a property dating from circa 1615.

    The main house offers superb living accommodation with three well-proportioned reception rooms and a spacious contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with access to the gardens.

    The impressive principal bedroom with en suite bathroom can be found on the first floor along with three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    Additional accommodation is provided in the self-contained ‘Little Longdyke' which consists of a reception room and workshop, and enjoys delightful views of the grounds and potential to further develop to one's personal requirements.

    Outside, the gardens are well planned and offer fantastic privacy. To the side of the house is an integral double garage and a large gravel driveway providing ample parking for several vehicles.

    Longdyke is charming property with a fascinating history, an internal viewing is highly recommended.
