The Property

The house is centrally located in the village and is accessed via an ‘in and out’ gated, gravel driveway. The farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room has a four oven Aga, with a central island and granite worktop, trap door to a cellar and access to the rear staircase.

Garden
Hardwick House is approached by an ‘in and out’ gravel driveway through double wrought iron gates, one mounted to stone pillars leading to a large gravel parking area to the front of the house with further access leading to the coach house.

There is a deep screen of lime trees giving privacy to the front of the house. From the terrace there are steps leading down to the lawn, previously used as a grass tennis court and a ‘ha ha’ defines the boundary. The rural views are principally to the east. There is a mixture of mature coniferous and deciduous trees including Wellingtonia, variegated sycamores, copper beech, walnut, yews, firs and holly. A holly walk runs along the northern boundary and to the south of the property is a separate strip of land leading to a good sized orchard area.
