    About this property

    • Listed Grade II, Hill House Farm dates in part to 17th century & was extended with its classic Victorian edition to the front. Internally the property has numerous period features that include inglenook fireplaces, exposed wooden floors, beams and studwork and mullion windows. The house benefits from the two sections of the house which date to different periods with large sash windows in the Georgian section and exposed beams and studwork within the older rear of the property. The outbuildings are a particular feature of the house with a detached studio, a two story red brick former barn which has great potential and has been renovated and could be easily converted into a cottage subject to the necessary consents. The timber framed barn is a particular feature of the property and is a fine example with many substantial timbers, exposed part stone floors and large double doors opening out to a sheltered courtyard garden. The granary which is also two story has been renovated and also provides great potential for alternative uses subject to the necessary consents.

      There are a series of exceptionally spacious former agricultural buildings which are ideal for storage or potential business use subject to the necessary consents. There is also a large barn to the rear which has undergone a renovation to insulate and provide heating as well as a kitchen & shower room. Beyond the land surrounds the house and is ideal for horses or other livestock.
