    About this property

    • Situated on a quiet single track lane with fields to the rear, Longstraw House is set back to the rear of its plot, which extends to about 0.4 acres. With origins thought to date to the 17th century, the property is Grade II* Listed. Having evolved over the years the oldest part is timber framed beneath a mainly thatched roof and was once two cottages which are understood to have been converted into one house in the 1980s. In the same ownership since the 1990s, the property has been lovingly restored and well maintained. With period features including C17 plank doors with strap hinges, chamfered beams, original floor boards and exposed timber framing, the property today, combines contemporary comforts to create a delightful family home. Outside, there is a detached annexe building with attached garage. Currently used as home office/art studio with a mezzanine, it offers scope for conversion to ancillary accommodation depending on needs.
      Delightful cottage gardens to front and sides include established trees offering shade and play areas, a working well, and pretty terrace areas.
