Hillside is an unusual and interesting property and has been part of Longtown village for many years with the central section dating back to the 18th Century. The property was a public house called The Black Lion until 1905 and in more recent years, the village petrol station and stores. Hillside is a double-fronted stone house with attached workshops offering the potential to convert, subject to any planning consent, to either ‘work from home’ space or ancillary accommodation. The house is complemented by pretty gardens and enjoys a southerly aspect to the front.
