Believed to date back to 1865 in a true Italianate style this impressive and substantial old house was divided in 1957 with Longthorns West retaining the courtyards with original stabling, coach house and barn. The well-proportioned and high ceilinged rooms include an elegant drawing room with south facing windows, fireplace, ceiling cornice and a spiral staircase leading up to the first floor. A well fitted kitchen with a Redfyre stove used for cooking and provides the central heating and hot water. Adjoining the kitchen there is a substantial conservatory, which has lovely outlooks and French doors out into the gardens. There are three bedrooms arranged on the first floor together with a spacious shower room. In addition to the main home there is a two or three bedroom annex providing ancillary accommodation. Whilst the house has been well maintained over the years it is now in need of certain works of modernising and redecoration.
