Full description

Hill House is one of the most substantial and historical houses in Manningtree and has a fascinating history, understood to be one of the first major houses to be constructed in the Town and surrounding areas as early as 1500's.

To both sides of the house are smaller houses, which were originally the servants' quarters, and a series of rope operated bells were used over the centuries to summon the staff. Other historic points of note are 'the priest holes' and a 'hidden room' it is understood the during turbulent times in the history of Eastern England a succession of catholic and protestant clerics hid from the enemy there.

Its original structure believed to be early Tudor, constructed as wooden-framed Manor house and the original structure is still intact and can be seen encased in a glass viewing panel inside the house. Over the years the original Tudor structure was encased in a typical Georgian design brick house, further additions to the house during the 19th Century included a kitchen and outhouses.

The interior of the property has been tastefully designed in keeping with the age of the property, and comes part furnished with new beds in a couple of the rooms plus dining room furniture. The kitchen comes with all kitchen appliances including a Smeg Range and the base and wall units are set off with large limestone tiles.

The accommodation comprises of: entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, drawing room, bathroom with separate shower, fitted kitchen/breakfast room and cellar. To the first floor 4 bedrooms and family bathroom. To the top floor 3 further bedrooms with distant estuary views to the front. To the rear is a South facing garden lawned garden with mature trees, treble car port & ample off road parking. The property comes part furnished to include all beds.

Manningtree forms part of the Essex historical towns Survey and appears to have been deliberately planted in the first half of the thirteenth century presumably by the lord of the manor; the town itself is first recorded in the Doomsday Book 1086. The High Street has many Georgian fronted buildings, which hide their true medieval roots. The town has a wide range of Restaurants, Pubs, Local Businesses, Health Centre/Dentist and a Theatre within the community. Manningtree Beach and The Walls, have great views along the river and across the Suffolk shoreline. Schools in Manningrree offer a good standard of education.
