About this property

    Hill Common Farm is a wonderfully positioned rural property comprising a period farmhouse, a substantial timber frame barn with full residential planning consent and all set within about 4.5 acres of mature meadowland. The property is conveniently located in a private and peaceful setting on a quiet lane within a short drive of the A11 with excellent transport links.

    The principal farmhouse is believed to date back to early 1800's, with later additions and alterations to create a comfortable home currently configured as four bedrooms. It would be fair to say the house would now benefit from updating, but has been well maintained. The ground floor offers a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room with fireplace, utility and bathroom with potential to incorporate the integral garage or an extension if required, subject to gaining the necessary planning consents. The house sits within immediate mature garden with meadows and farmland beyond.

    To the south of the house is the traditional barn, formerly used for storage and now with full residential planning consent (ref;
    PL/2019/0993/F) to convert to an attractive four bedroom dwelling. The barn is south facing, looking out over countryside the design provides striking open plan living with the provision for plenty of natural light and features throughout such as a fireplace and vaulted ceilings.

    It is an excellent opportunity to create a substantial home set in unspoilt surroundings.
