Anton's Hill House was designed by William Burn, the famous Scottish architect, and completed in 1853. It gets its name from a nearby well that is dedicated to St Anthony. Burn designed the house in Jacobean style which, at the time, was undergoing a 19th century revival. The house, which is listed, is beautifully constructed of dressed sandstone under a predominantly slate roof (on the site of a much older house). Consequently the site is very private, being surrounded by mature policies and specimen trees. The house has a southerly aspect and is approached down a sweeping tarmacadam drive, from the East Lodge, through wonderful wooded policies and an avenue of mature oak trees.
The house contains much of Burns' original interior decorative features that include an elegant staircase, large doorways, marble fireplaces, corridors and generous proportions throughout. All the rooms have plenty of light due to the large windows. The accommodation flows well with a sensible layout. Of particular note are the public rooms which are especially handsome. The bedrooms are spacious and there are a good number of bathrooms. The principal accommodation has been significantly refurbished in recent years whilst the secondary accommodation is currently used for storage but, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, could be adapted/converted to create additional accommodation/self-contained flat/annex/office space.
There is a double garage, garden store, log store and an outside WC.
