EQUESTRIAN - Nestled in the midst of lush Chiltern countryside, Longdown Farmhouse is a hidden gem. It retains many of the charming features characteristic of a traditional farmhouse combined with the comforts of twenty-first century living. Built in the middle of
the nineteenth century, the farm house has an attractive brick and timber façade.
The lengthy driveway is gated and opens onto the gardens and bucolic views of the fields beyond. It leads to the front door and reception hall where there is a welcoming wood-burning stove.
The drawing room and family room are located off the hall and, thanks to their southerly aspect, they both feel light and airy and overlook the gardens with rose bushes in the foreground. To the other side of the reception hall, the dining room has an open fire, conducive to hosting dinner parties on long winter nights.
A hatch in the wooden floorboards opens to reveal a staircase to the cellar where there is plenty of storage space. Access to a second cellar can gained from the hall. The warm and spacious
kitchen represents the heart of the home. It features a red tiled floor and an oil-fired Aga as well as a walk-in pantry with a breakfast room beyond. Access to the boot and saddle room
can be gained from this area as well as from an external door. A doorway leads from the breakfast room to terraced area which provides the ideal spot for al fresco dining. Rising to the first floor, four bedrooms open off the landing.
The master bedroom is dual aspect with casement windows offering magnificent views across the gardens and paddocks forming part of the property. Subject to the usual planning consents, there is scope to convert the adjoining shower
room into an en suite for the master bedroom. The guest suite is agreeably discreet and secluded with and en suite dressing room and bathroom. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor.
This property is featured by our Equestrian department.

The gardens and grounds are exquisite. Mature plantings are set amongst beautifully manicured lawns which are separated from the paddocks by traditional post and rail fencing and there is a copse of trees in the middle distance. To the front of the property, near the front door there is a well and a weeping willow. A courtyard garden, rose bushes and a fruit orchard add to the rich and verdant scene.
