This beautiful home simply must be viewed to appreciate its character, history, charm, gardens and location. Situated along a private road in the heart of Longhirst Village, set within its own private grounds totalling approximately 1.25 acres it really is a very tranquil location, this lovely home has been well maintained and is well presented throughout, you will not fail to be impressed. The vendors have loved living here for 45 years, but now the family have flown, it is time for them to downsize. Prior to the vendors purchasing the property in 1976, the previous owners had been in residence since 1948 and had farmed a smallholding utilising the field beyond the house to the West, some of the out houses still exist and are now used as garden sheds. The vendors have improved the dwelling by adding the porch, the conservatory, modifying the bathroom and w/c into a single room, adding the en suite Jack and Jill shower room between two of the other bedrooms, converting part of the loft area, adding secondary glazing, rebuilding
the kitchen and adding the electric AGA and generally modernising the house. Rewiring and a new oil fired central heating system were undertaken during the tenure of the vendors.
The property briefly comprises; To the ground floor, Entrance hallway, breakfasting kitchen, sitting room, formal dining room, garden room, conservatory, utility room, workshop, cloaks/wc, three bedrooms, en suite shower room, and family bathroom. To the first floor is located the main bedroom. Externally there are front, rear and side gardens, woodland area, vegetable garden, courtyard area, double driveway and detached double garage with extra parking area.
The property was constructed as part of the Longhirst Hall estate is the mid 19th century. The whole village was built as an estate village following the erection of the Hall. Croft House was thought to have been built during this period. It became the engine house for the Hall when electricity was installed there and the building would have been altered to suit this purpose. Apparently there was a steam generator located where the dining room is now with belt drive to the sawmill in the property next door, Haworth Cottage. There was a gas works in the area of the present garage.
The Village is a very friendly one with much going on around the village hall and the church. A new wood was planted for the millennium to the North of the village providing a good walking area and there is a bridle way to the West leading to Hebron, and beyond, with no traffic to contend with. The village is on the X18 bus route to Newcastle, Alnwick and Berwick and is only 3 miles from either Morpeth or Ashington for shopping.
