Hillbrow Manor is an imposing brick built town house dating from the late 1800’s, with a wealth of period features, flexible living space and elegant gardens. The Victorian heritage of the property is reflected in the brick construction, soaring high ceilings with central roses, timber sash windows and cast-iron fireplaces.
The property is entered via a tiled vestibule, opening into the light and spacious reception hallway with access to the principle reception rooms. The drawing room, with its turret alcove, feature fireplace and fitted bookshelves, offers a magnificent setting for entertaining. Further reception space is provided by the sitting room, which also benefits from a feature fireplace and fitted bookshelves. The sitting room leads directly to the breakfasting kitchen, with its traditional styling at the heart of the property. The impressive gas-fired AGA sits in an inglenook fireplace, and is complemented by a range of painted units with solid wood work surfaces and a double Belfast sink, along with an integrated dishwasher, space for a fridge/freezer and a good-sized dining table and chairs. A practical utility room opens off the kitchen, with purpose-built linen cupboards and plumbing for three washer/dryers. In turn the utility room leads to the integrated garage. A useful study and cloakroom/WC complete the downstairs accommodation.
To the first floor there are four double bedrooms. The master bedroom benefits from beautiful fitted wardrobes and the continuation of the turret alcove from the drawing room below, along with an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, wash hand basin and WC. The three additional bedrooms all feature Victorian cast-iron fireplaces and the airy high ceilings that run throughout. These bedrooms are served by an elegant bathroom with free-standing roll-top bath, wash hand basin and WC.
A staircase leads from the first floor landing to the second floor and a large versatile space that is currently configured as an open plan fifth bedroom with adjoining sitting room with Velux windows. This space could be utilised as a cinema room, games room or extensive study area if working from home. The second floor also has a storage room that benefits from plumbing and could provide an additional en-suite to the fifth bedroom. Finally, loft storage space offers further practicality.
Hillbrow Manor is approached via electric security gates and a driveway, leading to a parking and turning area. The well-established front garden is enclosed by a low stone wall with wrought-iron railings, and mature planting offers further privacy. To the side of the property a five-bar gate leads through to the stunning garden. A block-paved courtyard provides ideal outdoor entertaining space, whilst a chicken enclosure and vegetable planting area cater to those looking for fresh produce.
Extensive terracing adds form and character as the gardens descend to the woodland and creates a tranquil and relaxing environment. The flagged terrace which runs along the rear of the property gives views out across the garden and the lower terrace. The gardens are completed by a sheltered and lawned orchard and an area of woodland, complete with a log cabin with electricity and a wood burning stove.
The gardens offer a haven of peace without sacrificing the convenience of nearby amenities.
