A fantastic opportunity to acquire a historical building with a multitude of flexibility and potential. The corner set Long Room originated as a public house and is Grade II Listed because it is a building of Special Historic and Architectural Interest. From the Listing it is noted that this is "from the early 19th century, stucco with stucco detail; roof hidden behind parapet with moulded cornice..." Corner - site plan with bowed corner.
Well over 150 years ago the The Long Room inn takes its name from a building some 50 yards away that a little over 200 years ago was not only the most impressive building in East Stone , it was virtually the only one!
Constructed in the middle of the 18th century, for 50 years or so this was one of the most fashionable centres for social life in the area back then, today the building retains much of its original intrigue with its conversion into a 4 bedroom dwelling. It is currently arranged as a maisonette and flat, together with a basement level which lends itself to further potential, complimented by an attractive rear garden and an inviting covered courtyard area.Accommodation
The Long Room represents a fine lifestyle choice as it's nested in quite an accessible road in the heart of Stonehouse and within walking distance of the historical Royal William Yard. The accommodation is spacious and versatile with the flexibility to be altered according to the occupier's taste. In its current form this exceptionally large reception room was the public house area of the building extending to approaching 33' in length, with a high ceiling. Kitchen area is to the rear and the window is overlooking the garden. This is complimented by a double bedroom and family bathroom.
Upstairs to the first floor there are two light and airy generous size bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a utility with a balcony overlooking the garden. This room very much lends itself to becoming an extra bedroom. Next to this lies the principle reception room that is spacious and grand.
The 3rd floor offers a another large spacious bedroom with beautiful exposed timbers, complimented by a sizable bathroom and access to a rooftop balcony. Finally the basement currently lends itself to a studio space, for those seeking further square footage. The barrel room would be a prime space for further development (Subject to the appropriate planning).Outside
Boarded by a pretty stone wall lies a deeply attractive enclosed rear garden with a wonderful range of mature horticultural splendour. The stone patio offers an ideal place to sit and enjoy the afternoon sun accompanied by a lawned area, pretty flower beds followed by two spacious outbuildings believed to historically be wine cellar's inset to the fabric of the building accessed via the patio.Services
