    About this property

    • 7 Hill View is an impressive, detached, Grade II listed property set within the popular village of Eydon. It has been sensitively transformed by the current owners, including the creation of a generous kitchen and a fantastic family room.

      The property benefits from a wealth of period features and is presented to a high standard. There is also a secondary wing, which would be well suited to being a hobby room or annexe, subject to any necessary consents.

      The house is approached through a delightful hallway with stained glass windows, feature tiled floor and doors into the gardens. The dual aspect sitting room features window seats looking onto the garden, window shutters, a wood-burning stove, wooden floor and exposed beams.

      The charming, dual aspect dining room includes an inglenook fireplace, wood panelling, window seat and exposed beams. This leads through to a study and a useful storage room and onto a further versatile room, which could also be used as a study / snug / library. This opens into a wonderful and spacious open-plan kitchen / breakfast room with double doors on to the rear terrace. The kitchen includes wooden base units with wooden work surfaces and a Belfast sink, a range cooker and plenty of room for dining.

      Located off the hallway is a further kitchen / hobby room with high ceiling and a utility room and WC to the rear. This could be a charming self-contained annexe, subject to any necessary consents.

      The first floor comprises two light and spacious double bedrooms, both with charming window seats, one with in-built cupboards and the other a cast iron fireplace. There is also a family bathroom and a fourth bedroom / study, which leads through into and an impressive family room. This generous and light, open plan room features a high vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. This room could alternatively make an exceptional bedroom.

      The second floor provides a delightful dual aspect double bedroom, generous dressing room and an en-suite shower room, with further storage on the landing.

      The property features a gated gravel parking area with space for several cars. The mature landscaped, south east facing garden is a wonderful spot to relax and unwind. It features a large terrace providing ample space for al-fresco dining; a generous lawn; further seating areas, mature trees and well-stocked flower beds and borders.

    I love what the current owners have done with the property. The kitchen and first floor sitting are impressive additions and I think its exciting having the flexibility with the hobby room / annexe.
