Situation - Bicknoller is a pretty unspoilt village nestling in the Quantock Hills with a 12th century Church, a popular village pub, village hall and a vibrant community with a variety of clubs and associations. It is approximately 3 miles from Williton which is served by a range of shops, schools and commercial facilities. The coastal resort of Minehead is 12 miles to the west and the County Town of Taunton, with motorway and mainline railway connections, is approximately 13 miles to the south east. Taunton has extensive retail and leisure facilities as well as excellent State and Private schools. The West Somerset Coast is about 4 miles away and the Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills, the first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, are both on ones doorstep.
Description - Hart Hill House is a beautiful Victorian property, thought to date back to 1883, when it was built as the Vicarage before being split into two properties. It is built primarily of stone elevations under a pitched slate roof, with accommodation arranged over two floors and period features including high ceilings, sash windows and stone mullion bays. The current owner has greatly enhanced the property having undertaken some major renovations, whilst being sympathetic to the character. Hart Hill House is now being offered to the market in excellent decorative order.
Accommodation - There are three entrances into Hart Hill House, two from the parking area and one through the front garden. From the garden the door opens into the property from under a beautiful south facing oak veranda, with glass roof, into the dining room. The dining room has a wood floor and provides access to the kitchen, sitting room and hallway. The kitchen/ breakfast room enjoys a wonderful southerly aspect through a large bay window which overlooks the front garden. The Kitchen was moved by the current owner and is now fitted with a range of base units with granite worktops, an inset 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink, and a two ring gas hob. A gas fired Aga with AIMS (Aga Intelligent Management System) is set within a chimney recess, with oak beam over. There is a stunning island unit with matching cupboard fronts and a granite worktop, which extends to create breakfast bar to one side.
The sitting room also faces due South through two four pane sash windows, and the external veranda, and has an open fireplace in one corner set upon a slate hearth with a heavy beam over. There is also a bespoke cupboard designed to hide entertainment equipment built into another corner.
The hallway has also been updated, with a tiled marble floor and new solid oak staircase to the first floor. Off the hallway is a storage cupboard, a downstairs shower room with WC and wash hand basin, an external door to the parking area and a doors to the scullery, dining room and kitchen. The scullery is a really useful space, which doubles up as a boot room, and has space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, a storage cupboard and large slate worktops with an inset sink fitted under a window which looks out towards the parking area. The slate floor continues into the large walk-in larder which has slate shelving and a door to the rear courtyard and parking area beyond.
Upstairs the spacious L shaped hallway provides access to all the bedrooms and the family bathroom. Bedroom one is particularly spacious and light, with large bay windows and floor to ceiling built in cupboards along one wall. Bedroom two enjoys a dual aspect and benefits from a built in cupboard and an en suite with WC, wash hand basin and walk in shower enclosure. Bedroom three is also a delightful double room and four could be used as a single bedroom or study as desired. The family bathroom is fitted with a traditional suite comprising an inset roll top bath with wooden panels and hand held shower attachment, vanity unit with sink, WC and bidet. The large accessible loft space is part boarded.
Outside - The garden is very sheltered under the southern elevation of Hart Hill House and enclosed by a combination of stone walling and substantial wooden fencing. There is pedestrian access from the quiet village lane through a wooden door onto an area of patio, which runs up to the veranda. The main area of garden is predominantly laid to lawn with planted mixed herbaceous borders and a circular area of gravel in the centre. There is a small garden shed. To the rear of the property there is a shared driveway (with two other properties - Hart Hill Cottage and The Old Vicarage) which is accessed through wooden 5 bar gates. Hart Hill House owns the drive, which provides parking for 2 to 3 vehicles without obstruction. There is access into the property from the parking area where there is also an outside store room; formerly a small laundry and toilet.
Services - Mains gas, water, electricity and drainage. Council Tax Band E.
Directions - From Taunton take the A358 towards Williton. Upon entering Bicknoller turn right onto Church Lane and continue past the pub where Hart Hill House can be found shortly beyond on the left hand side. It is easier to park in Church Lane opposite the pub and approach via the front door.
