About this property

  • Long Pightle is an attractive 1950s family home, situated in a lovely semi-rural position in the hamlet of Piltdown, backing on to the prestigious golf club. Extended and remodelled over time, the house offers generously proportioned and well-presented accommodation extending to over 2,500 square feet, with a versatile and partially open-plan layout, ideal for modern family life.

    The full extent of the property and its layout can be seen on the floor plan. The front door opens to a light and bright entrance hall with oak flooring, off which lie a study and cloakroom. Double sliding oak doors open to an impressive dual-aspect reception room/lounge overlooking the garden, featuring a contemporary Contura woodburner set on a glass hearth. Adjoining the sitting room is the equally spacious kitchen and dining room, which is fitted with an extensive range of wooden units and island with granite worktops and an Aga; there is ample space for a dining table and/or seating area, and French doors opening to the south-facing terrace. The kitchen is served by a useful utility room, in turn leading to the boot room, boiler room and attached garage which has an electronically operated overhead door.

    Stairs rise from the inner staircase hall to a part-galleried first floor landing leading to four good-sized bedrooms and the family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms benefit from built in storage, and bedroom two has an en suite shower room. Of particular note is the wonderful principal suite: comprising a lovely dual-aspect bedroom and a large en suite shower room.

    Outside
    Long Pightle is accessed from Golf Club Lane via electronically-operated timber gates mounted on oak pillars, which open to a Cotswold stone driveway lying ahead of the house and garage; the driveway continues around to the west offering plenty of parking for a number of vehicles.

    The property's private and well-enclosed gardens are of particular note: predominantly west-facing and carefully landscaped by the current owners to provide colour and interest, whilst also being largely low-maintenance. A large south-west facing stone terrace with outside lighting lies adjacent to the house, offering a lovely sunny spot for entertaining and al fresco dining; from here an expanse of level, well-tended lawn extends away from the house, dotted with young trees and edged by borders well-stocked with mature woodland shrubs. A large timber shed provides storage for garden tools and machinery. The western end of the garden is bordered by fencing and laurel, and has an attractive outlook through mature oak trees over Piltdown Golf Club's 17th fairway.

    In all, about 0.71 of an acre.
