Longfield Avenue, New Barn
If ever you’ve seen a property described as a Tardis, then this stunning, detached bungalow on one of New Barn’s most sought after roads, epitomises that description!
Substantially extended, reconfigured and now finished to an incredibly high standard by its existing owners, the four bedroom property is suitable for a variety of buyers, even multi-generational families, considering the self-contained Annex in the garden.
The property occupies one of the largest plots in the road – just check out our video tour or plot map, to see the full extent.
Boasting a generous frontage and access via metal, electric gates, the property is offered with a tarmac driveway for at least 5-6 cars, and an integral garage for further off-street parking and storage.
The property offers a spacious entrance hall, which provides access to the four bedrooms, the family bathroom, a separate WC and a utility room.
The master bedroom is sizeable, bright and stylishly finished, benefitting from fitted wardrobes and a large, contemporary, en-suite shower room. Bedrooms two and three are also substantial double rooms, both benefitting from fitted wardrobes and space for desks, whilst bedroom four is a slightly smaller single.
The family bathroom is generously proportioned, fully-tiled and featuring stylish white suite to include shower-above-bath, toilet, wash/hand basin and a heated towel rail. Convenience is provided in the form of a separate WC, for larger families who may be fighting for bathrooms in the mornings.
The real showpiece of this home is the rear extension, which has enabled a bright and beautifully presented, open-plan kitchen/living/dining arrangement, which includes Amtico flooring throughout. It features a top of the range kitchen with breakfast/dining island, and integrated appliances to include treble oven with plate warmer, full length fridge & freezer, dishwasher and wine cooler. The separate utility room hides away the washing machine and tumble dryer.
Bi-fold doors to the rear of this space open out to an impeccably maintained, South-facing rear garden, which simply goes on… and on… and on…
The first of three main sections of garden features a large patio space with pergola and hot-tub area – a fantastic space for Alfresco dining, or for entertaining in the summer. Beyond this, there is a large section of artificial lawn, before a second resin & block-paved seating area and a striking water feature. A large hedge ensures this space retains its privacy, with two small openings to yet more surprises!
Beyond the large hedge is a third patio and seating area, before you’re presented with an impressive 6.85m x 3.14m, brick-built, self-contained Annex. The space has been utilised as a home office and studio by its existing owners, but could comfortably be used for guest accommodation, for those with older children – or even for those with elderly parents who may be looking to reside with the family. The space boasts vaulted ceilings to its living area, with wooden beams and skylights, electric windows and blinds, a fitted kitchen, a separate office or sleeping area, and a fully plumbed toilet.
Beyond this, there are three further sections of lawn with a pathway that leads to a raised, sun-trap of a decking area and a fully-equipped home gym. The space offers two sets of bi-fold doors, sky lights, light and power. If not used as a gym, this could make the perfect home office for those that run businesses from home, or perhaps a children’s games room. You’d think that’s it, but behind the gym are two storage units for yet more storage, one with the benefit of an electric roller door.
Additional benefits to this incredible home include a communications cupboard, servicing the property Wi-Fi and telecoms, as well as the security CCTV and alarm system – which links to all areas, both internal and external. There is electric under-floor heating to the family bathroom. There are rear doors to the garage, whilst the garden also benefits from side access and a number of lights / electric points.
New Barn is well located for reputable nurseries, primary and secondary schools, as well as road links to the A2, M25, M2 and M20.
Nearby train stations include Longfield, which provides a 31 minute service to London Victoria, and Ebbsfleet International, offering services to Stratford International and Kings Cross / St Pancras in just 11 and 21 minutes, respectively.
School coach and public bus services stop along the nearby New Barn Road, offering services to Gravesend, Dartford and Wilmington Grammar schools, as well as Gravesend Town Centre and Bluewater Shopping Centre. A commuter coach service to London is also available.
The nearby Longfield village also offers a Waitrose, a Post-Office and independent businesses to include a butchers, a bakery, a barber shop, hair and nail salons and a DIY store.
You can also enjoy a peaceful country walk across The Gallops, to the park at The Oval, or to the local pub at the top of Longfield Hill.
