A unique detached character home believed to date back to the 1900s located in a private and tucked away position within the pretty and peaceful village of Long Bredy. EPC Band F.


Hallynges is a unique detached character home believed to date back to the 1900s located in a private and tucked away position within the pretty and peaceful village of Long Bredy. The property occupies a level and attractive plot and has a whole host of period features which include an exceptionally well preserved original tiled floorway, picture rails and shelves, bay windows and alcove shelving. The property has been occupied by the current owners for approximately 40 years and would lend itself to a degree of modernisation and updating and could well be extended subject to the relevant consents. Despite this need for a refresh the house is believed to have been well tended to over the years and benefits from UPVC windows.

Hallynges is not listed and offers generous proportions throughout despite being of a three bedroom configuration (with an extra guest bedroom downstairs). Internally, the property offers accommodation that includes a dual aspect entrance vestibule and sun room with views across the garden, a stunning hallway with original Victorian tiles, a dual aspect dining room of sizeable proportions with a feature original fireplace. The sitting room has a bay window and an electric fireplace with an open fireplace behind and feature shelve alcoves. The generous kitchen breakfast room has plenty of space for a dining table a selection of pine units, a window seat, and is of dual aspect. A larger than average larder sits to the side. The oil fired boiler is also housed within the kitchen. Beyond the kitchen is a well proportioned utility with two doors, one leading to the front garden and the other to the rear. Beyond the utility is a single ancillary room with a shower room attached. This would certainly suit guests, future proof the home or could conversely offer income potential for the right incumbent.

Upstairs the house currently offers, two exceptionally spacious bedrooms and a smaller 'box' room with fitted storage. There is ample opportunity for the upstairs to be reconfigured and en-suits added and the family bathroom has a separate wc.


The property is approached via a driveway across a small leat that runs parallel to the village lane. The drive leads to an area of parking and a substantial single detached garage. The grounds and gardens extend from this area where there is a path that leads to the front of the property. The gardens are mature and slightly overgrown at present but once opened up, would provide ample opportunity for any keen gardener. The plot offers approximately 0.3 of an acre in total. Further gardens lead around to the side of the properties, one being an area which is handy as utility space, bins etc. To the other side of the property, there are more areas of level lawn which extend around the rear of the house and offers a private and pretty setting. The whole property is secluded yet offers excellent far reaching views from the upstairs accommodation.
