5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Croft Drive West, Caldy

4 5 4 1

'Long Hay' is a beautiful example of an exceptional residence typical of the period, surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, within the highly desirable location of Caldy. Over recent years, the current owners have taken great care to undertake a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment to the house, introducing an “Art deco” feel and finishing it to an exceptional standard of specification with an expert attention to detail.

The property offers everything that modern day family living requires, yet the owners have taken great care to maintain the period features to this home, which include fireplaces, unique lead lighted doors and ornate moulded ceilings, all enhanced by the complementary interior decor including exquisite William Morris wall coverings. The gardens, including the tennis court, benefit from a superb south west facing aspect and offer as an enchanting space for relaxation and recreation alike. The raised terrace stretches across the whole rear elevation making this the perfect spot for 'Al Fresco' dining and entertaining throughout the summer months. The garden is totally secluded and peaceful and really does need to be viewed to be appreciated.

It must be noted that there is approved planning permission, where the tennis courts are, for a five-bedroom detached residence. This the current owners never wished to explore and have enjoyed the residence. This is an opportunity for the right individual, to explore.

Internal inspection of this property is a must to appreciate the quality and attention to detail that has gone into creating this home, it truly is spectacular, from the internal elegance to the external privacy and tranquillity of the garden and location as a whole.
