About this property

  • Tucked away on a private 'no through' lane behind the church and village hall, Robin Hill is a fine and individual detached family home. Originally dating from the 1930s, the house retains many of the best characteristics of that era and has been considerably improved and enlarged by the present owners who have lived at Robin Hill since the early 1970s.
    The property presents very well today, with modern double glazing and a good sized kitchen/breakfast room that opens through to a lovely garden room.

    All ground floor rooms take advantage of the stunning rear view and west-facing aspect. Upstairs, three of the bedrooms offer a very similar outlook, and the views to the front from the first floor, across the neighbouring farmland, are also pleasing.

    The mature gardens are beautifully maintained, including an impressive lawn that gently slopes away from the generous rear terrace towards the breathtaking views over open countryside.

    There is a lower shingled terrace and small pond to one side, forming another attractive seating area. A further, and substantial, sloping stretch of grass is hidden beyond the formal gardens, interspersed with younger planted trees and shrubs and also incorporating a wild flower meadow, complete with orchids.

    Services: Mains water and electricity, oil-fired central heating and private drainage.

    Agent's Note: A path, about 6ft wide, runs inside the hedge line across the very far end of the garden and is gated to the two neighbouring gardens. This is a private right of way, only for the two neighbouring properties, and provides access to a track that leads down to Ashurst Station. This right of way has not concerned our long-resident vendors. Prospective buyers would be able to screen the path, if they wished, by hedging along the right of way to follow the neighbours' hedge line.
