Believed to have been constructed in the 1920’s and later substantially extended, South Hill is an impressive country house located on the outskirts of this popular village and occupying stunning grounds.
The ground floor accommodation has an L-shaped entrance hall with French doors to the rear garden and an oak staircase leading to the first floor. The far right of the property has a dining room comprising a fireplace with recessed log burner, solid wooden floors, French doors with arch window above to the rear aspect and a bay window, overlooking the swimming pool. Adjacent is a cosy sitting room with an open fireplace and French doors to the rear.
The kitchen which has windows to front and rear aspects has been sympathetically designed and comprises a range of fitted cabinets with granite surfaces and an impressive Aga. A central island houses an electric oven and hob and serves as a breakfast bar. Immediately to the left is a TV room, with solid fuel burner, which leads to the orangery which has superb views over the grounds to the rear. Left of the TV room is a spacious games room, which was once an internal swimming pool, now covered with laminate flooring but which could easily be reinstated. Stairs from the games room lead down to an internal lobby which accesses the east wing, comprising a ground floor bathroom, the sixth bedroom, utility room, boot room, double garage and cinema room with first floor mezzanine office.
The first floor hosts a superb master bedroom suite which occupies over half of this level and benefits from two dressing rooms with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The remainder of the accommodation has four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property is approached via an extensive shingle drive providing ample parking for several vehicles and has a central grass turning circle, either side of which are established lawns bordered by privet hedging. To one side is the double garage and the other, adjacent to the front boundary is an all-weather tennis court. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging and have views over open farmland. There is also a paved patio leading to raised decking and to the east side of the property is a heated swimming pool, detached gymnasium and pool house.
