Dating from the 16th Century, Hegg Hill House is a handsome Grade II Listed farmhouse. It has a host of lovely period features and combines the timber framing of the 16th Century with the more formal proportions of the later 18th Century Georgian addition to the front.
A wide front door leads into the hall. To the left is a bright and sunny sitting room with a magnificent wide brick inglenook fireplace, and to the right of the hall is a lovely, part-panelled room with a double aspect and an attractive Georgian display cupboard to one side of the fireplace. A door leads into the third reception room – a lovely timbered room, with views across the garden.
The dining room runs along the back of the house, and is a lovely intimate room for either formal or informal entertaining. The kitchen, a bright and spacious room with ample room for a table and chairs, completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor accommodation offers four generous double bedrooms and two smaller single rooms. There are two bathrooms. On the second floor there is generous, unconverted accommodation, comprising two large rooms and a further storage area.
The gardens are an unfailing delight and offset the house beautifully. The rear garden is dominated by a large natural pond. Informally arranged and landscaped, the garden has lovely specimen trees and wide open areas of lawn giving beautiful vistas over the garden and setting the house in a “darling buds of May“ landscape. Few gardens offer such a feeling of tranquillity and calm. Beyond the garden is a large paddock. A newly granted permission allows an entrance gate to be erected for vehicular access.
