Longley is a traditional detached farmhouse
enjoying a quiet countryside location on the
edge of Tarves, and only a 1 mile walk to the
amenities in the village. With a high degree
of privacy and a quiet secluded south facing
position, Longley sits in approx. 2.25 acres,
of which approx.1.2 acres if laid to grass. The
property offers generous accommodation over
two floors and was fully refurbished by the
present owner over recent years. Of particular
note is the large family dining kitchen which
enjoys an outlook over the land to the front.
There is a superb detached steading building
and a separate detached 24m x 12m steel
shed, whilst the land surrounds the property
entirely with a majority lying to the front with a
southerly aspect.

Longley is an exceptionally spacious lifestyle
property with great flexibility and a range of
potential uses including equestrian, those
looking to potentially run a business from
home and of course those buyers simply after
a rural lifestyle.

Enter immediately into the main entrance hall
which provides individual access to most of
the rooms on the ground floor and has stairs
leading to the upper landing. To the right hand
side is the lounge, which enjoys a southerly
aspect to the front. This is a generous room
with a wood burning stove. To the left hand
side of the house is the large dining kitchen
which has been fitted with quality cream
country style units with coordinating work
tops. There are plenty working, storage and
dining space within this room and again it has a
pleasant southerly outlook. Accessed from the
kitchen to the rear is a generous utility room.
This room has work top space, sink with drainer
and there is space for a variety of appliances.
An external door leads to the rear. Returning
to the main entrance hall you will also find the
bathroom. Fully tilled, this bathroom has been
fitted with a white three piece suite including
wash hand basin, toilet, bath and a separate
double shower unit.

Continuing upstairs to the landing, which is
bright given the large velux style window,
you have individual access to the remaining
accommodation. Bedroom one is a double
bedroom with windows overlooking the front
of the property. There is a built in cupboard
which provides some storage space. Bedroom
two is an equally spacious double bedroom
also position to the front. In additional to both
bedrooms there is a box room positioned
centrally, and has a skylight window. This is a
good space for extra storage.

The good track road leads to the property from
the main road and there is plenty space for
parking at the front of the property. The ground
in total extends to approx. 2.25 acres and to the
south side is an area of land of around 1.2 acres,
laid to grass which could easily be enclosed to
accommodate animals.

A stone built detached L - shaped steading lies
to the North side of the house. This steading
has been partially converted to one side into
a separate room and working toilet; with the
remainder as a work shop and storage area.
There is both a pedestrian entrance door and
separate large sliding door to the rear. Power,
electricity & water connection.

Added approx. 4 years ago, the steel clad
multi-purpose shed is 24m x 12m, with a
concrete floor and is exceptionally versatile.
There is power, light, water tap outside, and
both a pedestrian entrance door and large
sliding doors. For those with equestrian
interests, this shed could be adapted to include
stabling and also provides a great opportunity
for those looking to run a business (subject to
the required permissions).

Approx. 15 acres of land lying immediately to
the North and West of the property may be
available under separate negotiation. Please
