    About this property

    • Available with no onward chain and on the market for the first time in over 30years, Hillside offers the rare opportunity to acquire an impressive Grade II listed property totalling approximately 2.43 acres, on the edge of a much-sought village. The house itself benefits from a wealth of period features, including exposed beams and stonework and wood panelling. It also benefits from a generous garden, outbuilding, which offer further potential, and approximately 1.77 acres of grass paddocks.

      Originally dating from 1684 the stone property was then extended in the 1970's and has been improved over the years. An historic front door leads into the hallway with handmade tile floor, made by a previous owner of the property. The spacious, dual aspect sitting room includes an array of character features including an inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove, window seats and a flagstone floor. A stone staircase leads down to a very useful cellar and a solid Elm staircase leads to the first floor.

      A charming, dual aspect snug / office features a stone fireplace and window seats. The dining room provides a further versatile room and leads onto a most impressive kitchen, with high vaulted ceiling, large feature window, doors into the garden, fitted kitchen with island unit and seating area. There is also a boot room / back kitchen with door into the garden, utility room and a downstairs WC.

      A spacious landing, with feature wooden panelling leads to two generous, triple aspect, double bedrooms. A further galleried landing leads to a bathroom, with separate WC, and a separate shower room.

      The second floor provides another spacious landing, which has been used as an office, and two further double bedrooms / offices with eaves storage.

      There is off street parking as well as a detached garage with a useful room above, accessed via an external staircase. This is currently used for storage, but has potential for conversion, subject to any necessary planning consents.

      Further outbuildings including a timber workshop and a range of timber stables offer further space and potential.

      The grounds at Hillside extend to approximately 2.43 acres and include wonderful mature gardens. A charming courtyard to the rear of the property, with a water feature, provides a lovely space for al fresco dining and leads onto a formal garden area with lawn and large beds with mature shrubs. This then leads onto a spacious orchard area with a variety of mature trees. There is a further walled garden area behind the garage and stables, which provides a further lawn, orchard and fruit and vegetable garden.

      In addition, the property benefits from approximately 1.77 acres of mature grassland paddocks, which have a private separate access. These would be ideal for grazing sheep and horses.

    I love the rural feel of this house with so much scope to add your own stamp and enjoy the views in a particularly secluded part of the village.
