THE PROPERTY

This charming and practical home is located in a corner of Hillview, a private estate, in a tucked away and secluded position with views across the surrounding countryside from the plot and rear of the house.

There are several approaches to the property. The most convenient leads in to the rear of the house where there is ample downstairs accommodation to suit those looking to work from home or to suite multigenerational living. A door from this reception area leads into the integral garage that has been added by the current owner. Beyond is a hallway with a downstairs bedroom, family bathroom and separate WC, the main living accommodation sits to the rear. The dual aspect sitting room has been extended and leads down into a sunroom area via a split-level with sliding doors to the patio that integrates the garden with the living accommodation.

The sitting room also boasts an open fire with attractive stone surround. The kitchen breakfast room is well appointed with a fitted kitchen and space for appliances along with a six-ring range oven. There is plenty of room for a kitchen table and there are also sizeable built in cupboards. A handy porch leads to the outside and is used as the main entrance by the current owner.

The downstairs Master bedroom boasts the original herringbone parquet flooring is found at the front of the house and is of generous proportions. Stairs rise from the hallway to the first floor, where there are two bedrooms, both of which are excellent sized doubles with good head room. Bedroom two spans the entire width of the first floor and enjoy a dual aspect and under eaves storage.

OUTSIDE

The property has a generous garden, which has been added to by the current owner and which holds several outbuildings and a sizeable outbuilding (7mx14m).

The plot is it s own oasis being quiet and relatively private with the ends of neighbouring gardens abutting and several exceptionally mature apple and pear trees. There is an existing right of way for a neighbouring property but this does not infringe on ones enjoyment of the ground and further privacy could easily screen this right of way. The garden extends from the rear of the home with a raised deck and built in Jacuzzi. Steps lead to a level lawn and sizeable and deep pond. There is access around both sides of the dwelling and a right of way from the land at the rear across a strip of land to North Allington, to allow access to the back of the property. The house has evolved during the current ownership but has plenty of further scope. Many improvements have been made which include Oak doors, several extensions, re-plastering and updating.
