Enjoying a secluded setting within beautifully established formal grounds is Hill Croft, an elegant detached Edwardian residence showcasing generously extended family interiors and five bedrooms, sitting in about 4.46 acres with superb equestrian facilities including stables and an all-weather arena. Dating back to 1906, Hill Croft originally formed part of the Walton Hall estate where it served as the farm manager s residence. A fine example of a period home, traditional features have been retained throughout, and this delightful countryside property has been sympathetically extended and refurbished to include bespoke hardwood windows, an extended master suite and landscaping to the secluded wrap around gardens.
Hill Croft offers extensive living and bedroom accommodation alongside further potential to extend or convert existing outbuildings (STPP), and the adjacent equestrian facilities offer potential for residential use or are ideal to provide rental income as DIY livery. This impressive residence is serviced by mains gas central heating (zoned to each floor), three phase electricity and hardwood double glazed windows, and there are multiple telephone lines offering dual residential and business use as well as broadband speeds of 45 Mbps. Regular milk and newspaper deliveries are also available.
The traditional entrance door opens into the reception hall, where doors lead into three generously proportioned reception rooms. The family dining kitchen features a gas Alpha range cooker, and double doors opening out onto the rear terrace and gardens. Functional spaces include a fully fitted boot room, large laundry room and cloakroom. To the first floor, there are five bedrooms serviced by a jack and jill bathroom, further family bathroom and shower room, and idyllic views over the gardens, paddocks and countryside beyond. Outside, a sweeping private drive leads up to the property, where there are an extensive range of outbuildings including a triple bay garage and coach house, offering superb potential for conversion into an annexe/Air BnB style rental (STPP). The formal gardens extend to 1.1 acre enjoying privacy to all aspects, and gated access opens from the driveway into the yard where there is ample additional parking and access to the equestrian facilities. Four paddocks total just over 3.3 acres, and the four stables are serviced by a tack room, hay barn and kitchenette. Sitting between two of the paddocks is an all weather arena enjoying rural views. The layout of the land and stables offers excellent potential for either private use or to lease out as DIY livery.
