PROPERTY DESCRIPTION
Predating 1628 this former working farmhouse was once held by the Hempson family (who helped shape the early settlements of Wix, Ramsey and Little Oakley) for approximately 300 years. Modest in those formative years Hill House saw significant investment and remodelling with extensions between 1760 to the 1790s only to be remastered in the early 1900's to create the sprawling 3,880sq ft. footprint with imposing elevations greeting you today.

Hill House is accessed either by the shingled laid 'in and out drive' to the front elevation or via the private access to the rear of the property that offers an elevated, far reaching view of surrounding farmland leading to a generously proportioned Double Garage and attached workshop/store.

Upon entering the mature acre grounds of Hill House you are immediately greeted by a handsome and commanding property of conventional construction under a pan tiled roof with bay and full height leaded windows.

Arranged over two floors accommodation is extensive with seven bedrooms, Ensuite bathroom to the Master, five reception rooms, Kitchen, Scullery, Cellar and Ground Floor Cloakroom.


Of particular note to the ground floor is the intricately Oak panelled Lounge with recessed stone central fireplace and full height leaded window providing an elegant feature filled central hub to the house. This Lounge leads off to both a bay fronted Drawing Room and formal Dining Room to either side of the property's front elevation, with Oak flooring seamlessly running throughout, feature fireplaces and leaded windows with a Southerly outlook.

At the rear of the property accessed from the Central Hall is a dual aspect Study with original bakers kiln, quarry tiled Cloakroom leading to the rear courtyard and first sequence of outbuildings, a hand crafted Oak Kitchen with large adjacent Billiards / Play Room and a Scullery. Accessed from the Scullery to the rear is a paved courtyard leading to an 'L' shaped workshop and (former) Milking store.

The long landing on the first floor continues the character filled theme of the house seamlessly with a large leaded half landing window with mature garden outlook, skylight and Oak fronted floor to ceiling storage cupboards and architrave.

The first three bedrooms are wonderfully proportioned, the Master boasts its own Ensuite bathroom and all seven of the first floor bedrooms have their own wash basins and offer a unique perspective of the surrounding countryside or encompassing grounds.

Externally Hill House is set back practically central within its plot having mature gardens either side and to the front of the historic dwelling. To the North Eastern side resides a Green House beside a sheltered paved area with outside swimming pool (requiring restoration if required). Adjacent to this lies the large Double Garage and separate store of 25' 8" x 19' 11".

The mature gardens offer the perfect combination of relaxation and, for those with green fingers, they are a sheer gardeners delight. Predominantly laid to lawn with blooming wild flowers and established trees this private acre setting will always offer somewhere capturing the sunshine whatever its position throughout the day.
