    About this property

    • Occupying an elevated setting with wonderful views over the village and the Church, The Hill Farm is a handsome Grade II listed property constructed from local ironstone with Bath stone mullion windows. Dating from the late 16th century or early 17th century, the property was completely renovated and refurbished in the 1980s to an exceptional standard. The superb vaulted sitting/dining room/kitchen was added in 2010. The well-presented accommodation extends to 4,269 sq. ft. over three floors.

      A generous entrance hall welcomes you into the property. The sitting room and dining room are well-proportioned with inglenook fireplaces housing wood burning stoves. The heart of the home is the magnificent sitting/dining room/kitchen which is fitted with handmade burr oak units with granite worktops and splashbacks, electric oven and hob and four-oven Aga. Doors open to the paved garden terrace which is a perfect spot for coffee and cocktails.

      Between the dining room and the sitting/dining room/kitchen is a striking hand blown glass stained window. A useful utility links to the kitchen and garage. Completing the ground floor is an office and a WC. On the first floor are four double bedrooms and two well-appointed bathrooms. Bedroom five is on the second floor along with a study/office, shower room and loft space. There is a 521 sq. ft. cellar beneath the sitting room.

      The sloping gardens are terraced to provide flat areas including a croquet lawn. There is an area for the growing of vegetables and soft fruits. Mature specimen trees include walnut, beech/copper beech, plum, apple and pear. The property is approached from the village via Hurdlers Lane and a private drive terminating at the double garage. There is ample parking space for several cars.

      Beyond the lawns and garden is a sloping fenced field extending to about two acres.
