Fine Edwardian Country House on the edge of the village within grounds of about four acres.
Hinton Place is thought to have been built in the early 1900s and has been upgraded several times since then and provides spacious and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors and retains some nice original features including an elegant panelled staircase in the reception hall, open fireplace in the drawing room, stone mullioned windows and some attractive exposed ceiling timbers throughout many of the ground floor rooms. Most recently the kitchen has been upgraded to a high standard and is centred round a large island with Belfast sink and four oven Aga with module. Large glazed doors open onto the rear terrace beyond which is the main lawn. Also on the ground floor and facing south, is the drawing room, a dining room and there is a cosy east facing morning room. On the first floor in the main house there is a luxurious master bedroom suite with bathroom and dressing room overlooking the rear garden, a guest bedroom with en suite facilities and two further bedrooms with separate bathroom.
The west wing of the house is a most useful inter-connecting annexe which provides most comfortable guest or staff accommodation but could just as easily be incorporated into the main house. The ground floor provides a reception hall, sitting room and kitchen as well as 3 bedrooms on the first floor.
The property is approached from a quiet lane via double electric gates leading to a stone gravelled drive with ample parking and a turning area. A further gated and cobbled inner courtyard provides garaging for two cars with two of the garages having been converted, one providing the utility room for the annexe and another a dedicated wine cellar. To the rear of the annexe is a further detached garage block with storage for three cars. The main gardens lie predominantly to the south and east of the property where there is a large level lawn bordered on three sides with mature shrubs, trees and plants. A secondary driveway leads along the eastern boundary providing access to the south where there is a paddock enclosed by post and rail fencing, a stable block and yard. The stable block has rendered elevations under a tiled roof and provides American style barn stabling for three horses, a tack room, store and shower room with power, light and water incorporated.

I like the fact we are on the edge of village but can still walk to the local pubAshley Rawlings
