Welcome to Hill House
As you approach Hill House, you can't help but be impressed by this perfect example of a traditional stone built home. An attractive wood panelled door with glazing above provides access into the entrance porch with lovely exposed stone lintel.
A partially glazed door leads from the porch in to the generously sized central hallway which in turn provides access to generously sized living room. The living room is full of character with lovely large inglenook fireplace with stone surround containing a wood burner making this the perfect homely family room. South facing windows with working wooden shutters ensure this room enjoys plenty of natural light with exposed beams to the ceiling adding further to the traditional charm.
From the living room to the west lies the lounge which has a delightful open fire, hearth and mantle piece complete with an attractive multi-coloured tiled inset. French doors provide access out to the rear garden as well as a generous amount of natural light, there is also an additional window facing south. There is a variety of shelving and cupboard space located to each side of the fireplace ensuring plenty of storage and display space.
Across central hallway from the living room lies the breakfasting kitchen with beautiful pine hand built units and oak worktops. The inset Belfast style sink with mixer tap above is positioned nicely to display the rear garden through a wide window. In addition there is also an AGA, Jerusalem stone tiles to the floor and French doors leading out to the west. To the east of the kitchen lies the dining room which has a lovely feature wall of exposed stone, two Velux windows facing south as well as a large picture window also facing south. The ceiling is part vaulted and as such displays rustic beams.
The utility room lies just off the kitchen and contains a versatile and large amount of generous storage. It contains plumbing for washer dryer and dishwasher, 1.5 bowl ceramic sink with mixer tap, two Velux windows and a rear door. There has also been a new Worcester Bosch boiler fitted in August 2020 with a 5 year guarantee through a local installer. The eastern wall is exposed stone and there are exposed beams to the ceiling.
From the central hallway, stunning cast iron spiral stairs lead to the first floor…
At the top of the stairs, north and west facing windows ensure there is a good amount of natural light. There is exposed stone to the walls ensuring the character found in the ground floor continues. This main hallway provides access to all three bedrooms.
The primary bedroom has a light and airy feel with windows to two aspects; north and south. There are a range of built in wardrobes as well as an en-suite shower room which has two piece white suite with storage beneath basin, natural light via a south facing window and large walk in shower.
The second double bedroom lies to the rear of the home; it has dual aspect windows and a partially vaulted ceiling as well as a recently modernised en-suite with beautiful grey tiles, large walk in shower and two piece white suite.
The third bedroom is on the south east corner of the home; it is also a good sized double and enjoys a south facing window.
The final room on this floor is the family bathroom with roll top footed bath, two piece white suite with pedestal style basin and low level WC, a chrome finish heated towel rail and built in storage.
From the landing area there is a drop down ladder proving access in to the loft which is partially bordered and ideal for storage.
To the front and south of Hill House, there is a low maintenance garden, predominately flagged and bordered by an attractive and in keeping with the village stone wall.
There are various flower beds allowing personalisation and colour, the flagged area also provides access to a raised up patio area adjacent to the front door; this would get the best of the morning sun into the afternoon.
The rear garden has many different areas ideal for seating; there is a patio immediately adjacent to the home and from this area four steps lead up to the well kept lawn which has an apple tree, various planters and borders, a pond with raised up stone borders, summer house with power and a red gravelled path leading to the rear of the garden where a large garage can be found.
The garage has pedestrian access via a side door and offers lighting and power. In addition, lying to the west there is a good size driveway.
