Property Description

“Hillside”, a six double bedroom former Edwardian hunting lodge constructed in 1912 sitting on a plot of just under an acre, offers discerning buyers the opportunity to purchase a piece of history. Crafted by Canadian carpenters, the timber elements of its architecture showcase a distinct influence on its design. Notable among its original features is the towering 'rod room,' initially intended for storing fishing gear but now repurposed as a craft room with its lofty ceilings.

The interior of the lodge is meticulously presented, offering expansive and luminous spaces where the main rooms capitalize on breath-taking vistas of the surrounding countryside.

Upon entering through the open veranda, one steps into a spacious entrance hall with exposed wooden flooring and partial panelling. Leading off this space are the main reception rooms. The sitting room, boasting remarkable views, features ample room for sizeable furniture and a fireplace with a wood-burning stove. There is also access to the garden office with its full-height windows and splendid outlook.

Adjacent to the sitting room is the dining room with generous space for dinner parties, complete with a fireplace and French doors opening onto a decked area, offering a direct view across the valley. Accessed from this room via a remarkable secret hatch or from double doors to the outside is a practical lower ground floor workshop / cellar.

The snug, positioned off the kitchen / breakfast room, also possesses a character fireplace, as well as French doors to the veranda. This cosy reception room leads to the Rod Room — distinctive with its lofty ceiling, believed to have once served as the store for fishing equipment.

The kitchen / breakfast room, showcasing a tiled floor, is equipped with high quality wall and base units, oak worktops, a double sink, integrated dishwasher, electric induction range cooker, and a solid fuel Esse range nestled within a brick chimney breast. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room, also tiled and fitted with wall and base units, granite worktops, a Butler's sink, and plumbing for a washing machine. A modern shower room is accessible from the utility

Ascending to the first floor reveals four double bedrooms, with the master bedroom offering particularly stunning views, a fireplace, built-in cupboard and an en-suite bathroom. Additionally, there is a family bathroom on this floor. The second floor accommodates two more double bedrooms, one with a fitted cupboard.

Approaching the property from the country lane, a driveway leads past a garage and parking area to another parking spot adjacent to the house. Here, an open store / woodshed is situated. A rose arch, steps and pathway traverse a lawned garden to the front.

Wrapping around the west and north sides of the house is a raised timber decking with a balustrade, maximizing the panoramic views. The remaining gardens consist mostly of lawns, with some sloping and terraced areas. Adjacent to the driveway on the left is a paddock shielded by mature Beech trees and featuring a treehouse. In total, the property extends to nearly one acre (0.84 acres).
