Full description

Hill Farm is a charming Grade II Listed house dating from the 16th century. The house was substantially extended in the early 20th Century, with recent improvements creating excellent family accommodation. Further land available.

Of particular note is the fine panelling to the reception hall and dining room, exposed beams and a vaulted ceiling to the principal reception room and a high quality Clive Christian fitted kitchen with Aga. The staircase and galleried landing are most impressive. the main hall leads to the main reception rooms and the landing to six bedrooms.

The gardens and grounds are a feature of the property with neatly kept lawns, leading onto the paddocks to the rear with a fine selection of mature trees to the northern boundary. The swimming pool complex was developed by the current owners. There is potential to convert this building into an office or annexe. A planning application has been submitted to separate this building from the main house, further details from the agents office. Planning consent has been granted for a three bay cart lodge.

Historical Note: The house was owned between the wars by Ralph Blumenfeld, an American born journalist, who on moving to Britain in 1894 became the editor of The Daily Mail and then The Daily Express, a post which he held for more than 25 years. He became part of a local literary set which included H. G. Wells.
