About this property

  • Newton Hill comprises a fine period country house which has
    been fully restored and renovated by the current owners who
    have also added a substantial individual architect designed
    extension to create a glorious additional open plan living
    space to the ground floor with access and views onto the wide
    terrace and gardens beyond, together with additional first floor bedroom accommodation.

    The flexible accommodation within the house has been carefully reorganised to allow natural light to flood through to many of the principal rooms. The open reception hall and sitting areas lead through to the principal reception room and onto the lovely period orangery. There are two further reception rooms within the original house which then link through to the wonderful and substantial extension built in keeping with the original style of the house, but creating glorious open plan space with underfloor heating and cathedral high vaulted ceilings with high glazed windows and bi-fold doors, leading out onto the wide entertaining terrace and the gardens beyond. The rear hallway area leads to a further reception/snug, utility and cloaks. An open tread hardwood staircase rises to the semi galleried side landing area.

    The upper floors approached by the original staircase provide
    access to four good bedrooms, two of which have generous
    en suite shower rooms and there is a large family shower room
    and W.C. The side hallway with galleried landing looking over
    the living kitchen space, leads to the master bedroom suite which has a dressing room, full en suite bath and shower room
    and the sixth bedroom, again with an en suite shower.

    From the Orangery a carefully conceived and matching glazed
    link leads through to the separate period style coach house which incorporates a gym at ground floor level and onto the substantial garaging. The upper floor enjoys a lovely and versatile cinema/ games room. This area could readily be divided into a separate annexe if required subject to any consents required.

    The house enjoys a lovely private position with a partly walled
    entrance and recessed driveway, leading to a substantial
    courtyard and landscaped front garden areas. All of the principal rooms enjoy a fine aspect over and access onto the
    large rear terrace area and then onto the generous and very
    private gardens, with established productive orchard, areas of
    woodland and generous lawns with a fine open vista across the
    open adjoining farmland.
