Property Description: SITUATION & DESCRIPTION
1 Hillside is a well presented two bedroom character property located in the popular village of Frogmore enjoying views towards the creek and the countryside.
This wonderful property, believed to date back to the 1900s, retains much of its original charm and character. The house is approached via stone steps leading to its elevated position and front door. 1 Hillside comprises an entrance hall, with a large understairs storage cupboard, and to the left is the living area. A good sized and attractive living room has an open fire, and a bay window providing an abundance of natural light, with double wooden doors leading to a spacious open plan kitchen and dining area with ample storage, integrated appliances and space for a fridge/freezer. Leading off the kitchen is a very useful utility room, which houses the dishwasher, and there is a wc with hand basin. The house has tall ceilings and enjoys many character features including stripped pine doors and engineered oak flooring throughout the ground floor.
Stairs lead from the entrance hall to the first floor, with two generously sized double bedrooms and the family bathroom which benefits from both a shower and bath, hand basin with storage below and wc. Both bedrooms are light and airy, the master bedroom enjoying far reaching views across the village and over the neighbouring countryside. The second bedroom has an original cast iron fireplace.
Planning permission was previously granted for permission to convert the loft into a bedroom with en suite bathroom which has now lapsed. Plans are available by request from the agent.
1 Hillside sits on a generous plot with a rear courtyard terrace, which catches the morning and evening sun, with an interesting old stone barn comprising two workshops. It is believed that the barn, which is much older than the house, was originally a cow byre and milking parlour for the small dairy which was next door. It has power points and lights, and one of the workshops currently houses the washing machine and the dryer as well as the boiler for the oil tank which is situated in the lower section of the garden. The other workshop has a woodstore to keep wood for the open fire dry. There are useful sturdy wooden work units for garden tools. There is also an outside tap. Steps up the side of the barn lead to a lovely private decked area, in what was the top of the barn, ideal for sitting and having a drink and eating out during the warmer months. The rest of the upper barn serves as more useful storage, with ample space for garden furniture and a lawn mower. There is a small garden with lawn and borders and further up the garden is a drive and shingled parking for several vehicles. A surprising feature is a delightful larger upper garden with countryside views and estuary glimpses. Currently there is a thriving greenhouse and a large garden shed in good order. There are many mature trees and shrubs as well as apple, pear, quince and plum trees and a productive vegetable garden. There is a delightful feeling of space in the large upper garden which has become a wildlife haven. SERVICES
