A wonderful 4 beds/3 baths detached residence together with a substantial detached annexe set in beautifully landscaped gardens with stunning estuary views. Additional land available by separate negotiation.
Originally a 1950s built property, Long Park has over the years undergone extensive renovation works which has created a spacious, bright and airy property providing 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms/shower room and a wonderful sitting room with South West facing French windows capturing views over Batson Creek, Snapes Point, the estuary with East Portlemouth's sandy beaches beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with Shaker Style units which includes a Rangemaster and integrated appliances with granite worktops and upstands.
The detached annexe, known as ‘The Studio’, provides 2 bedroom/2 bathroom accommodation which is ancillary to the main house. A breath-taking vaulted open plan sitting/dining area provides light, airy spacious accommodation whilst enjoying wonderful views down to the estuary and countryside beyond.
Outside the property is approached via a timber 5 bar gate and drive which leads through the garden to the front of the main property and the attached double garage. To the rear of the garage, and also accessed from the utility room is an inner courtyard and separate outside WC. A secondary drive leads to the detached annexe which is served by a Daikin Altherma Air Source heat pump providing underfloor heating and hot water.
Long Park stands well within low maintenance gardens whilst to the rear a generous South facing sun terrace that wraps itself around the property with a raised stone water feature providing a stunning venue for entertaining and alfresco dining. Well stocked shrubs and borders surround the garden. In addition, there is an adjoining pasture field approx. 1.7 acres which is accessed via a gate a little further down the road, available by separate negotiation.
