FARMHOUSE SITUATED IN AN IDYLLIC COUNTRYSIDE SETTING WITH FAR REACHING VIEWS
Hill Farm is situated well back in an elevated setting off a quiet country lane. The village of Elmsett has a village store and post office, pub, primary school and village hall. Hill Farm is within easy reach of the attractive market town of Hadleigh which has a comprehensive selection of shops for every day needs and primary and secondary schools. Colchester and Ipswich have a much wider range of educational and recreational amenities. There are excellent walks in the area through gently undulating countryside of the nearby Brett valley. Commuters have the advantage of main line train services running from Ipswich, Colchester or Manningtree to London's Liverpool Street Station.
Grade II listed of Special Architectural and Historic Interest, Hill Farm is a delightful, stand alone farm house constructed from a timber frame and plastered with exposed timber framing on the north side under a tiled roof. The house dates back to the 16th century with later additions such as the attractive porch on the front and the extension at the north end. Internally the house has numerous features associated with the period including exposed beams, original floors, mullion windows, well proportioned rooms and a large open fireplace in the drawing room. The property has been in the same ownership for more than 20 years, so is in need of some updating.

The dining room has a mullion window and an original fireplace/ surround, which is no longer in use. The large kitchen/breakfast room is off the side hall and has matching base units and a practical larder. The sitting room is a large, light and airy room with French doors out on to the garden.
