HILL House is an impressive Georgian house, on four floors.

The property comprises hall, drawing room, library, sitting room, kitchen, nursery, games room, store room, utility, five bedrooms, three bathrooms, an apartment currently with three further bedrooms, bathroom and living room, a fabulous garden, swimming pool and garaging.

The drive down to the house also swings around to the large garage and forecourt.

All the principal rooms and bedrooms look towards the lake, nature reserve and wildlife sanctuary. The main rooms throughout the house have high ceilings, and many sash windows with their original shuttering.

The glazed front door leads into a large hall with the main staircase, under which is one of two staircases to the lower ground floor.

The kitchen is modern and bright, fully fitted with an island unit, granite worktops, fitted fridge and freezer and an electric oven and hob.

The drawing room has an open fireplace and a fitted bookshelf, beyond which is a library also with fitted book shelves. The sitting room has a wood burning stove.

The utility room links the front hall to the rear hallway, with its external side door and second staircase down to the television room/nursery, with its door to the garden. The boiler room beyond links to a games room, which has the second staircase and store room beyond.

On the half landing is a family bathroom, and on the top landing is a reading/study area and the main bedroom, presently with its large dressing room/bedroom with fitted cupboards along one wall, and ample room for an additional bathroom.

Along the corridor are three further bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room, and a further family shower room.

The apartment has a connecting door off this corridor, as well as an external door leading over a footbridge and path to the drive. Currently the apartment is divided into four rooms and a bathroom, but has exciting opportunities perhaps to be open plan, with dormer windows enjoying wonderful views.

The terraced gardens in front of the house are colourful and rich.

Mature trees stand proudly throughout, and within the grounds is a covered swimming pool, garden and tractor sheds, a greenhouse, summer house, fruit cages and a large garage with solar panels, and a secure store room measuring approximately 15m x 10m.

This building has the possible scope to provide ancillary accommodation, being away from the house, private and enjoying its own fine position.
