The sounds of children splashing in the pool and the polite thwack of tennis ball on racquet - Longacres was built in 1905 and it's easy to imagine a gentile era when the garden would be full of family and visitors cheering on the players on the grass tennis court or wandering through the orchard. It s a picture that can be applied equally today as people seek quality leisure time with family in a sought after area of substantial homes. However, few properties have the space or outdoor features that Longacres boasts, with its two acres of grounds easily accommodating all the garden activities a family could want, including a heated swimming pool. Standing proud and elegant accommodation over three stories, it is a wonderful, detached home with great potential. Surrounded by gardens, at the front it overlooks a walled terrace with steps leading down to lawns. From here, the front door opens into a spacious, central hallway with the principal reception rooms - a 32ft lounge and a family room - leading right and left, with bay windows overlooking the front garden. The back of the house is occupied by the kitchen, which leads into a separate dining room and a utility space, and a 28ft sun lounge, making the most of its aspect across the private rear garden. Many period features have been retained but these are combined with contemporary updates, particularly in the dining kitchen which is a sleek, modern space with white high gloss units, granite worktops and stainless steel appliances. Heading upstairs, the first floor landing is of particular note for its unique, stained glass window which is a fabulous feature. There are five bedrooms on the first floor served by a family bathroom and separate shower room.
