About this property

  • The Property
    Hill House is an impressive Edwardian house enjoying
    exceptional views across the Waveney Valley.

    Dating back to 1904, the original part of the house offers well-proportioned ground floor accommodation including formal reception rooms that enjoy south facing views. The house was substantially extended in 2008 to create an indoor swimming pool complex that incorporates an informal sitting/ dining area as well as a sauna and shower room. The bedroom accommodation flows across the first and second floors to provide six bedrooms in total including a principal bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom. Above the swimming pool complex is a spacious media/ family room that leads to a balcony which overlooks the grounds. The main house in all extends to 7,440 sq ft of living accommodation.

    The property enjoys a woodland setting and the gardens are largely laid to lawn to accommodate a large terrace which runs the length of the house, and a helicopter pad and shed. A sweeping driveway leads to the main entrance and round to extensive garaging. The grounds lead down towards the River Waveney and a right of way provides access to a private mooring plot. In all, Hill House sits in about 3.86 acres of land.
