A delightful and well presented Grade II Listed farm house.
Hill Farm is a delightful, detached period property located in a slightly elevated position on the edge of the village. Believed to date from 1731 when it was part of the Dashwood family estate it was subsequently sold to Merton College when it was a small holding with some 60 acres.
It has now been in the same ownership for over 20 years and care has been taken to preserve the character and charm. The front door opens on to a spacious entrance hall which has parquet flooring, winding staircase to the upper floor, exposed beams, coat cupboard and cloakroom. The impressive drawing room is triple aspect with a substantial inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove and French doors to the rear garden. The dining room is double aspect with flag stone flooring, inglenook fireplace with bread oven. Beyond is the kitchen/breakfast room which has a gas-fired Aga and the secondary staircase. The large utility room houses the boiler, walk in larder, Belfast sink and back door to the garden.
On the first floor are 5 bedrooms, bathroom and shower room.
To the east side of the property is the gravelled drive, ample parking and double garage. The very attractive rear garden is walled and comprises lawns, stone out house, terrace and herbaceous borders.
The adjoining paddock and orchard are rented by the owners of Hill Farm from Merton College on an annual rent and it is hoped that this arrangement will be able to continue.
