The lane eventually leads onto a drive which ultimately leads to Higher Longley Farm. Longley Farm Cottage is some distance short of the farm and surrounded by open fields in a picturesque setting. It is stands well back from the lane and comprises a detached property with dormers to the front. Constructed of brick beneath a tiled roof it was originally built to serve the neighbouring farm and was the subject of an agricultural occupancy condition which has subsequently been removed. Longley Farm Cottage has stood empty for several years and has fallen into a state of disrepair such that it now requires a comprehensive scheme of modernisation and improvement. There is clearly the potential to extend whilst others may consider demolishing and designing a new house subject to the availability of planning permission. However, there is a good sized footprint and the overall floor area to include the attached double garage is 2,092 sq ft. The existing layout is particularly generous at ground floor level with a sitting room, kitchen with dining area, separate study, garden room and utility room from which there is a connecting door to the double garage. At first floor level there are currently 4 bedrooms including a spacious master bedroom which are all served by a family bathroom and separate W.C. Longley Farm Cottage stands in a generous garden albeit now requiring re-landscaping and is also offered with paddock land. The paddock is accessed via a gate from the lane and wraps around Longley Farm Cottage. It is laid to grass and extends into the former quarry which is reclaimed ground beneath a sandstone escarpment. The successful purchaser will be obliged to erect a post and 3 rail fence stockproof fence to the land.
