    OUTSIDE
    Farm Hill House is approached from the lane into a large parking area which sits to the north of the house and provides access to the front door. The gardens and grounds to the property are exceptional. The formal garden in front has been
    expertly planted and landscaped, providing a charming and pretty aspect from the house and the terrace.

    The large terrace affords fabulous views over the garden, grazing and arable land to open countryside beyond. Yew hedges protect the terrace, with steps leading through them down to the formal garden. Yew hedges have been used to create superb structure, inside which there are beautifully planted herbaceous borders with a wealth of traditional cottage plants and flowers. The kitchen garden is situated to the east of the house, beautifully set out and protected by hornbeam hedges. The area also benefits from a greenhouse.

    There is a large area of lawn adjacent to the formal gardens. These lawns lead down to a beautifully positioned summerhouse. A row of ornamental pear trees separate
    the formal gardens and lawns from a wild flower meadow through which an avenue of ornamental pear trees lead on to the tennis court and swimming pool areas.

    The pool and tennis court benefit from a pavilion with 2 changing rooms, plant room, cloakroom and a large wrap-around veranda which overlooks both the tennis court and the pool itself. Behind the pavilion is a machine shed. Beyond the tennis court is a large oak frame barn with clay tiled roof.

    The grounds of Lot 1 extend to about 7.7 acres with two blocks of pasture and woodland in addition to the gardens.

    Lot 2 is available in addition and is a substantial block of arable land with woodland to the perimeter. It extends to about 33.7 acres in total.
