South Hill is a most attractive and imposing Edwardian house which occupies a generous plot of around 0.5 of an acre. The property is set behind banks of evergreen shrubs including rhododendrons affording it a great sense of privacy and is approached via a sweeping driveway leading to electronically operated double gates opening to a large area of parking/turning before the handsome façade. In recent years the house has undergone considerable works including having been reroofed, redecoration, the creation of a superb en-suite to the main bedroom and a thoughtfully planned extension to the rear enhancing the already spacious accommodation and creating a spectacular kitchen. The result is a triumph, a period home with a contemporary influence now offering all of the comforts one would expect of a house of this calibre.

The accommodation includes a generous reception hall with a grand staircase illuminated by a magnificent stained and leaded light picture window above, sitting room with cosy open fire and orangery beyond, separate family room, and a dining room. This leads to the stunning kitchen which is set in part beneath a dramatic vaulted ceiling and is beautifully equipped to satisfy any keen chef. The five bedrooms are all comfortably sized and the master has a dressing area and a luxurious en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom and shower room. The gardens are delightful, they too have been much improved and offer a delightful environment in which to relax and dine alfresco. There is a detached double garage with adjoining workshop and ample parking.
