Viewings to commence Saturday 11th September 2021

A most attractive Grade II Listed cottage standing on an impressive and very private plot with ample parking and detached double garage.

Situated within an established location opposite the wide open green space of Walsworth Common, this striking home is believed to date back approximately 400 years and was previously a small holding. It is also referred to in the book A stroll round the village of Old Walsworth .

Our clients have successfully transformed and refitted this amazing home, blending old world charm with modern contemporary design to create a stylish home with a flexible arrangement of living accommodation and quality fittings.

The present accommodation features an entrance porch and hall. A formal sitting room with a beamed ceiling and fireplace. An additional family room and recreation space that is currently used as a home office. A fabulous contemporary kitchen with Iroko worksurfaces and branded appliances. A beautiful conservatory/dining room with stunning views over the garden plus a rear hallway and cloakroom. Two separate staircases provide access to three double sized bedrooms, all with modern en-suites. The master and second bedrooms are also linked via a private passageway.

Externally The Long House is approached via double entrance gates. A sweeping gravelled driveway runs pass the cottage to a detached double width barn/garage, with enormous potential and parking area.
