The Property
Longhoughton Hall is a handsome Grade II Listed house which is situated in a private yet central position within the popular and convenient village of Longhoughton. The property is thought to date back to the late 16th Century or early 17th Century and it is clear that the property has been remodelled in the early 19th Century. While the buildings original form is uncertain, it may have been a bastle or strong house. The house offers generously proportioned accommodation with an extremely adaptable layout. The house retains an abundance of period features such as sash windows, working shutters, fireplaces and stripped floorboards, offering charm and character. The house is surrounded by private gardens and is just a short walk to the beach.

The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with attractive slate flooring which continues through to the dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. The principal rooms are south facing and provide excellent entertaining spaces; the sitting room and drawing room are both dual aspect and have attractive fireplaces fitted with multifuel stoves. The dining room, which is accessed from the hall and the drawing room, has a window overlooking the rear courtyard and an attractive inglenook fireplace. Also off the hall is a library with a range of fitted bookshelves, downstairs cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin and a door to the side courtyard. The bright and spacious kitchen/breakfast room, which has windows overlooking the front garden and to the side, is fitted with a range of wood units under granite work surfaces, a gas-fired AGA, double Belfast sink and an attractive open inglenook. To the rear of the kitchen there is a useful scullery, which is fitted with a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. There is a door to the rear, together with a traditional larder with slate shelving, the gas fired condensing central heating boiler and a rear cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin.

A period staircase from the hall leads up to a bright landing which is flooded with natural light from the arched staircase window. The dual aspect master bedroom has a period fireplace with painted mantle and cast iron insert, stripped wood flooring and benefits from an en-suite bathroom which is fitted with a bath, separate shower cubicle, wash hand basin and WC. There are three further double bedrooms on this floor, all with different aspects. Two of the bedrooms have attractive fireplaces and one has a range of fitted cupboards. There are two bathrooms both of which are fitted with white suites comprising bath, wash hand basin and WC. One has useful fitted cupboards.

Externally
The property is approached through impressive stone pillars along a gravelled driveway which leads to a parking and turning area at the front of the house. The driveway continues to the rear of the property and rear gates. A path with box hedge border leads to the front door. Generous gardens surround the property offering privacy and include a large expanse of lawn with mature beds and shrubbery, small copse and walled vegetable garden with greenhouse. To one side of the house there is a beautiful courtyard area which is ideal for outside entertaining or just enjoying the evening sunshine. There is a further courtyard to the rear which leads to the outbuildings.

There is an extensive range of stone outbuildings which currently provide original stables, various stores, the original coach house and ostler's quarters. In addition there are a large, double tandem garage and workshop. These outbuildings offer tremendous potential for additional accommodation subject to the necessary approvals.
