The Property

Hill House is an ideal family home with superb entertaining space both inside and out. Situated within an easy cycle or walk of Colchester station.

The present owners have undertaken an extensive programme of improvements including renewing and rerouting the water pipes, new kitchen, bathrooms and the addition of the conservatory. The gardens have also been transformed to create a wonderful display of year round colour following extensive planting. The drawing room and sitting room both face south overlooking the gardens each with window seats and log burners whilst the well-proportioned dining room has an attractive oak floor. The outstanding kitchen/breakfast room provides the focal point of the house, installed by
