About this property

  • Hammer Hill Farmhouse is a lovely Grade II listed period home located just outside the charming village of Thaxted. Nestled within approximately 11 acres of picturesque gardens and paddocks, this delightful property offers a perfect blend of historical charm and modern amenities ideal for the equestrian enthusiast.
    The farmhouse itself is beautifully presented throughout including a large modern kitchen with Aga and fully integrated appliances. The orangery is very bright with a log burner and has a flexible use in space.
    The reception room is very comfortable with great natural light and a wealth of period features including original beams, open fire place and exquisite wooden flooring.
    Beyond the main living area is a nook-style room ideal as a study/office. This room has a door leading to outside and gardens.
    In addition on the ground floor is a very functional utility room and downstairs WC. The whole ground floor has a logical layout with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom and also has multiple access to the stables and gardens. It is the perfect blend of period charm and modern and multi generational living. The house is set back from the quiet road and has parking spaces for multiple cars.
    On the first floor you will find four double bedrooms, two bathrooms, one of which is en-suite, the other is a Jack and Jill style. There is very good eave storage in one of the main bedrooms. Some of the bedrooms have stunning views on the gardens whilst another faces the stables.
    The gardens surrounding the house are peaceful and very well zoned. There are spaces for outdoor entertaining, gardening, vegetable patches and additional buildings for storage.
    The equestrian facilities are of a very high standard. The ease of use and layout is logical for a calm and relaxed yard. The stables are built around a central court yard with the tack room securely built across the way. There is a wonderful handling area currently used as a washdown/solarium.
    Across from the generous haybarn is the world class quality 30mx50m all weather arena with automatic, self watering system. The surface is favoured by the show jumping and dressage communities known for its fantastic 'give and balance'. There is also a five-horse Claydon horse walker with all weather surface.
    The paddocks to the property are logically laid out to the south of the stables with ease of access and use all year round.
    This property also benefits from a substantial solar system and car charging point.

Hammer Hill Farm house is the perfect family home. It is positioned beautifully within its garden and land. The equestrian facilities are fantastic and the arena is one of the best I have seen in my career. The location is rural yet close to the action of Thaxted. The property is definitely worth viewing. It is beautiful.
