Charming Grade II listed Sussex farmhouse with wonderful far reaching views to Blackdown, the highest point in Sussex.
Hillgrove House, understood to be built in the 1400s, is said to be the oldest house in Hill Grove, a popular hamlet on the outskirts of Lurgashall.
Upon entering the property, the hall leads to two main reception rooms, a large drawing room with original Inglenook fireplace and exposed beams and a comfortable double aspect family room both with fabulous views to the garden. The downstairs is completed by a kitchen/breakfast room with utility room and a dining room with beautiful oak panelling and a lovely outlook on to the garden.
On the first floor, there is a master bedroom suite with his and hers' dressing rooms and bathrooms. There are three further double bedrooms with en suite shower rooms.
The property is well presented and the current owners have been in residence for over forty years and Hillgrove House is now being offered to the market with an opportunity to further enhance and update.
Approached by a private drive, Hillgrove House sits well within its plot and enjoys spectacular views of the countryside and across to Blackdown. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and have been beautifully landscaped over the years to give space for formal and informal enjoyment.
There are two flagstone terraces with seating areas ideal for entertaining. The garden has an abundance of colourful plants and shrubs together with a number of established trees, in particular a glorious yew tree that predates the property. The property benefits from a converted studio/office with adjoining refrigerated wine cellar and additional storage.
