    About this property

    • Hillcrest is a handsome and very well presented detached Victorian house, dating from 1901 with a sympathetic modern extension added in 2002. Bought by the current owners nearly 20 years ago, the house has proved an excellent family home, both comfortable and elegant, offering spacious and generously proportioned accommodation extending to over 4,400 square feet, the layout and full extent of which can be seen on the floor plan.

      There are three formal reception rooms and a study on the ground floor all displaying the classic character features of house of its period, including sash windows, picture and dado rails and both working and feature fireplaces. The spacious kitchen has a range of painted cabinetry, marble worktops and a gas-fired four oven Aga; the adjoining breakfast room has ample space for a large table and chairs and French doors opening to the rear terrace.

      There are six good-sized bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate WC on the first floor, including the master and guest bedrooms which both benefit from en suite bathrooms. The sixth bedroom is fitted with wardrobes and is currently used as a dressing room. A substantial family/games room with electronically operated velux windows and an en suite shower room comprises the entire second floor, a versatile space ideal for older children or for conversion to further bedroom space subject to the necessary consents.

      Outside
      Hillcrest is accessed from the private road via a gravelled in and out driveway, offering parking and leading to the integral garage. A gate to the northern side of the house opens to a further parking space, a heated summerhouse and gives access to the rear garden.

      Hillcrest's garden is of particular note, extending to just under half an acre, enclosed by laurel hedging and being well established with a number of mature shrubs and trees. Doors open from both the sitting room and breakfast room to a large paved terrace adjoining the rear of the house, from here an expanse of lawn extends away to the west to the swimming pool and a shrubbery with timber arbour. To the far end of the garden is a further, partially screened area of lawn with two timber sheds.

      In all, about 0.46 of an acre.
