Hillfield House is a beautifully presented property set in a central village location with established and well-maintained gardens to the front and side, and benefitting from a private driveway with ample parking.
Refurbished in recent years to create a contemporary and spacious living space, the property has been finished to a high standard. This impressive home provides bright, well-considered, flexible accommodation over two floors.
The half paneled glazed front door leads to the entrance vestibule and onwards into the reception hall, which is in a central position and gives access to the main reception rooms, kitchen, downstairs cloakroom and WC and staircase to the upper floor.
The bright and spacious sitting room is a welcoming room and offers dual aspect, a feature gas fire set on a marble hearth with stone fire surround, coving to the ceiling and access to the dining room and garden. The dining room, to the rear elevation, is another room of good size, providing a more formal entertaining space and benefitting from beams to the ceiling and a window with views over the garden.
Off the dining room is the kitchen, with a range of cream wall and floor units and additional glazed display cabinets, a breakfast bar and complementary granite work surfaces, 1½ bowl sink and drainer. Integral appliances include an electric induction hob, extractor hood, double oven, microwave, dishwasher and full-size fridge and freezer. Off the kitchen there is a useful utility room, fitted with a range of cream units to complement the kitchen, a 1½ bowl sink and drainer and plumbed for a washing machine and tumble drier and a cupboard housing the gas boiler. Access to the rear graveled garden and wood store is from the utility room.
To the front elevation is a separate reception room, used as a family/snooker room by the current owners. This room is of generous proportions and benefits from beams to the ceiling, an open working fire set within an exposed stone inglenook style fireplace with stone hearth and impressive wooden mantle over and two attractive arches with a window and door leading to the outside patio area. A cloakroom and WC completes the downstairs accommodation.
Stairs from the reception hallway lead to the bright landing which gives access to all the upper floor accommodation.
The master bedroom to the front elevation benefits from fitted wardrobes and an en-suite, comprising attractive wall and floor tiles, walk-in integral Grohe power shower, circular wash-hand basin set in a vanity unit and WC. The guest bedroom to the rear elevation offers fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room, comprising wall and floor tiles with underfloor heating, walk-in shower and circular sink set into a vanity unit with WC.
There are three further bedrooms; two to the front elevation with one offering fitted wardrobes, and one to the side elevation which is currently used as an office, with quality bespoke office furniture with shelving and glazed door cabinetry. These bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom with bath with shower over, pedestal wash-hand basin and WC. A useful storage cupboard and airing cupboard completes the upstairs accommodation.
Hillfield House is approached along a tarmacadam drive leading to a private entrance with stone walls to the boundary and an expansive parking area laid with attractive drive setts and a detached double garage with slate roof and up-and-over doors. The garage benefits from water supply, light and power and provides excellent storage.
To the front of the property is an enclosed landscaped garden with established flower beds and mature shrubs and trees, and an area laid to lawn. A sun terrace offers privacy and an ideal space for outdoor entertaining or to appreciate the tranquil setting.
The main south facing garden has been carefully created so that all aspects of it can be appreciated. There is a substantial paved terrace ideal for al-fresco entertaining and raised beds with perennial plantings and mature borders planted with native tree species. Traditional stone walls mark the boundaries and provide a high degree of privacy. A further patio area sits off the centre of the garden and includes a built-in barbecue and a bespoke pizza oven made with sandstone to represent the shape of the property’s chimney.
To the rear of the property is an enclosed area, mainly laid to gravel with access to the log-store.
