Listed Grade II being of architectural and historic interest, Longbourn is nearly symmetrical in design and finished in white stucco under a slate roof with a parapet. Internally the house combines elegant, well-proportioned reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation over the first and second floors. Of particular note is the wonderfully light and airy drawing room, centred on an attractive fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The drawing room is triple aspect with twin glazed doors leading onto the paved terrace at the rear.

Across the gravelled courtyard is the old coach house, now partially converted to provide comfortable secondary accommodation with two bedrooms, together with the old stables providing garaging and storage.

The gardens and grounds lie predominantly to the rear. Approached over a gravel terrace and laid mostly to lawn the gardens are studded with a selection of mature specimen trees including Cedar of Lebanon, Wellingtonia, Scots pine and Silver birch. Adjoining is a further area providing a lawn tennis court.

Longbourn lies in the tree lined street of Forty Hill comprising a selection of handsome red brick and stuccoed period houses of the Georgian era. Opposite is the beautiful Forty Hall Manor, a Grade I Listed Jacobean Manor House and Country Park, both of which are open to the public.

There are excellent local amenities in nearby Enfield, just 1.5 miles distant including a new shopping centre and multiplex cinema.
