WORDS. They're marvellous things, but the trick part about them is that they can mean different things to different people – and conjure up ideas completely removed from what was intended.

A perfect example is the phrase 'new home'.

For most people this will mean the type of house you see popping up in developments all over the country – some for first-time buyers, others for those looking to downsize or to create a forever home for their growing family.

No so in the case of Long Lane Manor, a stunning individually-designed and recently built detached house in Brompton which offers buyers 5,113sq.ft of luxurious accommodation.

Built to an exacting standard by the current owners, Long Lane Manor does have one thing in common with the other type of 'new home' – buyers can bring their belongings and move right in, safe in the knowledge that it will be years before the spectre of home maintenance rears its ugly head.

Long Lane Manor provides a wealth of well-proportioned and generous accommodation with high ceilings and composite sash windows, impressive fireplaces and wood-burning stoves. The principal reception rooms all have views across the gardens.

Briefly, the accommodation comprises a ground floor entrance porch, a double-height dining reception hall which exudes a feeling of grandeur, a cloakroom, study/home office with a panelled ceiling and views over the rear garden, a drawing room, boot room, laundry room, shower room, garden room/studio and the large open-plan kitchen/dining/family room at the heart of the home. The kitchen is designed around a large central island with plenty of storage which opens into the family room which enjoys a dual aspect over the garden, and has glazed doors which open onto a large paved patio area ideal for entertaining.

Both the drawing room and garden room have large windows that flood them with natural light.

Upstairs, off the galleried landing, are the family bathroom, three bedrooms – one with en-suite shower room – and master bedroom suite comprising a spacious bedroom, dressing room and luxurious en-suite bathroom, plus the benefit of a large balcony with glazed balustrade and composite decking from where you can enjoy panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.

If that isn't enough accommodation, fear not. There's still the annexe, with a ground floor living/dining room, kitchen, and cloakroom and a bedroom with dressing room and an en-suite bathroom upstairs.

This would make a perfect granny flat or guest suite.

Long Lane Manor has a sizeable gravelled driveway providing ample parking for several vehicles and leading to a detached three-bay oak garage. The private gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are home to a large flagged patio terrace and a range of mature trees, including fruit trees. A separate gated entrance leads into the paddock, which is completely enclosed.
