There are a number of reception rooms which lend themselves to different uses, including a dining room, music room, study and home office. In addition, there is access directly from the driveway into a porch with storage and plumbing for white goods, alongside a ground floor shower room.

From the inner hall, stairs to the first floor present a light an airy landing with an en-suite principle bedroom as part of the extension, which has a walk in wardrobe and Juliet balcony.

The family bathroom is a generous size which offers a larger than average tiled shower cubicle, a separate bath, a back to wall WC and wash hand basin.


Known within the family as 'The Barn', is Longcroft Barn which lends itself perfectly as a self contained property or potential holiday let.

The gardens are a real feature of the property with various seating areas, raised beds, lawns, mature shrubs and trees. The gardens extend to over 3/4 acre in total and are a haven for wildlife and the perfect place to enjoy the array of changing colours throughout the seasons. Granite steps and a gravelled path lead directly from the rear seating area to a sheltered garden with a feature swing, raised beds, a miniature orchard and a former gardener's potting shed. The majority of the land is enjoyed as a gently sloping wild flower meadow, with natural and well established hedge boundaries with mature trees surrounding the plot. There is a separate gated and gravelled entrance which leads to smaller areas of garden, which could be used separately by those occupying The Barn.
