Property description

Longhope is a bright modern family home oozing with original charm, including exposed stonework, oak beams and hard wood oak flooring. Included is a sizeable Scandinavian inspired studio/outbuilding, with a large picture window and three flexible rooms.

Contemporary double glass doors open into the reception hall, with adjacent cloakroom. The integrated floorspace flows seamlessly into the large open plan south-facing sitting room. The original exposed stone fireplace has an ancient oak mantle beam taken from the original Town Castle. The fireplace houses an Eco wood pellet stove, whilst south-facing windows provide tranquil views. Underfloor heating is fitted throughout the ground floor. The expansive open plan kitchen and dining area are designed to capture all day sun and are complimented with a floor to ceiling glass wall with doors opening onto the rear hardwood decking, accentuating relaxed outdoor living.

The kitchen's crisp white palate is complimented by the central stainless-steel island with an integrated linear hob. Two double ovens, black granite worktops, and extensive food prep areas make this kitchen an entertainer's delight. An adjacent utility/drying room is incredibly useful.

Completing the ground floor is one of the property's four elegant bedrooms, from which glass doors give direct access onto the sunny rear deck area.

The first floor consists of a large master suite with floor to ceiling picture window, a sleek en-suite and three double built in wardrobes. The exposed stone wall gives an earthy serenity. Off the bright hall is the family bathroom with shower and free-standing limestone bath which can be filled from the homes’ integrated Renewable Solar hot water system. The two further double bedrooms retain exposed oak beams, whilst the south facing windows maximise the beautiful views.

A sweeping driveway leads up to the property which has parking for 5+ cars. To the front of the house is a large level area of formal manicured lawn.

Low maintenance borders with established herb garden and feature dry stone wall make this a desirable and relaxing enviornment. Taller, well established, trees to the boundaries offer year-round wildlife interest.
