Built, we believe, in the early 1930’s, this striking, individually-designed detached property commands a stunning hillside position providing seclusion without isolation, and retains many period features throughout including original doors and door furniture, picture rails, cornicing and floorboards.
To the ground floor features of note include: intricately-designed gated front porch; inner hall with beautiful sweeping dual staircase leading to the first floor galleried landing; formal dining room with access to the utility room; country-style kitchen/breakfast room with ceramic tiled floor, Aga, walk-in larder and wine cupboard; large drawing room (former ballroom) with wooden floors, open fireplace and access to the garden; double aspect sitting room with views of the garden; and a family room and sun loggia which link together to provide flexible and informal space with access to the gardens. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a guest bedroom with en suite shower room
To the first floor is a light, spacious landing with ample built-in storage, linking the double aspect master bedroom with en suite bathroom and the two further double bedrooms, both benefiting from en suite bathrooms and double aspect views, and ample built-in storage. The first floor also provides the possibility of reconfiguration to create a fourth bedroom, if desired.
Set in just under 3.5 acres, Mare Hill House is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway which, together with the double garage provides ample parking.
Formal gardens surround the property and include a croquet lawn, flower and shrub borders with mature specimen trees, vegetable and fruit cages, tennis court and a paved terrace area with uninterrupted views across the garden; perfect for alfresco dining. Completing the garden and grounds are 2 paddocks, the smaller of which has a field shelter, a tractor shed and hay/feed store.
