Under the Hill House is an exceptionally pretty and beautifully renovated Queen Anne style residence dating from the mid 18th century. The elegant facade also retains a charming octagon bell tower which is still working to this day. As you would expect, the Grade II listed house is bursting with exceptional and unique detailing much of which has been rejuvenated during the extensive renovations. The current owners were keen to preserve and enhance as much of the original architectural style as possible but have retained a comfortable ‘family home’ feel throughout which has been enhanced with 21st century lighting, heating and first class kitchens and bathrooms. The room proportions and abundance of light are excellent as the majority of rooms have two if not three large sash windows together with a host of interesting features including a stripped panelled study, 19th century staircase and a number of unique fireplaces throughout. Whilst the overall accommodation is generous at 6878 square feet it feels both usable and comfortable. The ground floor has three main reception rooms which all centre around the surprisingly large entrance hall and kitchen/breakfast room which creates a great ‘heart of the home’. The upper two floors offer six generous double bedrooms with well appointed bathrooms and excellent storage throughout. The useful wine store and loft are easily accessible.
Forming part of the main structure of the building is a fully independent annexe. This is an excellent space for a dependent relative or could alternatively provide a healthy income. It has completely independent access from the main dwelling but retains a number of link doors allowing multiple uses. This again is presented in good condition and offers flexibility in terms of layout depending on your needs. Property Ref: STR160219
