Hillands is a fantastic grade II listed period house with a great deal of charm set in the centre of its grounds with a wide range of outbuildings, all located in a delightful rural position on the outskirts of Marsh Green.
The original part of the house is believed to be 16th century with a substantial later Edwardian addition. Hillands has been in the same ownership since the early 1960’s and has been a much loved family home that would now benefit from updating.
Throughout the house there are a wealth of charming features which include beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces in both the drawing room and dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga, leads to a pantry, utility room, cloakroom, sitting room and office.
The beams and character continue on the first floor with a very spacious master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, family bathroom and stairs leading to a number of attic rooms with potential for further bedroom space (subject to the usual consents).
Hillands has a true sense of arrival as you approach via a farm track between arable fields and then sweep into the driveway. There are a wide range of outbuildings including a summer house, single and double garages, selection of storage buildings and former stables. There is a large barn named by the family as the Wagon Shed which has great potential (subject to the usual consents) and has been used in the past for general storage of agricultural equipment.
There is a delightful kitchen garden with a number of greenhouses, vegetable garden and fruit cages with a variety of fruit bushes. There is a swimming pool with shed to house the pump and heating system, and a former hard tennis court beyond that requires resurfacing.
The rest of the grounds include areas of formal lawn, mature woodland with delightful paths meandering to a stream that flows through the grounds with a number of bridges.
There is a large paddock to the south of the property and one to the east leading to the Roman road.
