Guide Price £785,000

Property Details

Location This is one of the key factors in buying a property and Hill Farmhouse stands very well with far reaching southerly views across a largely unchanged landscape of fields and trees. It is just out of the village and whilst having a rural feeling it is not isolated as it does have some neighbours which are the former barns now converted to stylish new homes. The focus of the house is away from the other dwellings and you can enjoy a fairly secluded aspect. Within the village there is a public house, church and small school, and for wider facilities including a commuter line rail station to London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes, you only have to drive a couple of miles into the market town of Diss with its local and national shops, schooling to sixth form level and a wide array of social and sporting facilities. The cathedral city of Norwich is just 25 miles or so to the north with an easy run up the A140 and the Heritage Coast around Southwold and Walberswick is just 40 minutes or so by car. This is a house which offers the best of country living with easy access to the wider world.

The Property Hill Farmhouse offers the style of a classical Georgian/Victorian farmhouse with all the benefits of a modern home as it was rebuilt on the site of an earlier house in 2000. The design gives generously proportioned rooms without feeling so vast that they are not 'friendly' and the large windows allow light to flood in. It is a property which is very flexible too with the owner having run a business from here in the past. A number of touches have been incorporated such as the heat recovery system, to give it green credentials and the insulation was beyond that required for the regulations. There is underfloor heating on the ground floor and bathroom with the rest of the house having radiators. Overall this house is a wonderful family home with elegance and space.

Outside The house is set quite central to its grounds of 0.352ha (0.897ac). To the south is a lawned area running down to park railing and from here there are views stretching across the countryside. To the east side is a large walled garden with central lawn, terrace, covered sitting area and various bushes and trees, and a gate leading into the vegetable garden with raised beds and a shed. A further walled garden is set to the north of the house with a working well at its centre and this is beside the range of store buildings. On the west of the house is the gravelled drive which runs up to the parking area and garage which has an external staircase up to a very useful boarded out storage area. The gardens are one of the many delights of this property.

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Shared private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to a combination of underfloor heating and radiators.
