About this property

  • Sidehill House is a substantial detached property which is thought to have been constructed in the 1950s and has been considerably extended over the years, situated at the far end of (privately owned) Heath Road. Of predominantly brick elevations beneath a tiled roof, the property extends over two floors plus a small cellar. The accommodation layout (please see floorplan) provides for annexe or staff accommodation in the more recently constructed 'west wing' with separate staircase but it does link upstairs and has great potential to be re-designed/configured to suit either a family or perhaps for dual generational living. Please note, this property has not been occupied for some years and requires a comprehensive programme of upgrading and modernisation. The main entrance leads to a reception hall with arches, stairs to the first floor and provides access to three spacious reception rooms (two of which connect with the rear gardens) an Aga kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom. Beyond the kitchen is a utility/boot room, various stores, a study/office/playroom, thought to have been the original garage, a small cellar and integral garage.

    On the first floor, the main landing gives access to three bedrooms, a family bathroom and the en suite shower room from the principal bedroom then interconnects with the second landing, a shower room and three further bedrooms.

    The mature gardens and grounds surround the property. A sweeping drive to the front provides considerable parking and there are raised lawned areas together with a line of tall mature trees to this boundary. To the rear, the gardens are south facing with a number of mature trees and shrubs, extensive lawns and to the far end, a hard tennis court. In all about 1.507 acres.

    The Property benefits from, but is subject to, the following title matters: Conveyance dated 31st October 1957
    a. A Right of Way with or without vehicles over the private access known as Heath Road shown coloured brown [on the brochure plan] is subject to payment towards the maintenance of the same according to user.
    b. A restriction limiting the Property to a single detached dwelling house with the usual offices and outbuildings
    c. A restriction on any commercial use of the Property other than for the business of a Solicitor, Physician or Dentist.
