About this property

Hillcombe Farmhouse is a substantial, south facing 5 bedroom house which was built in 2014 and extends to over 4000 square ft. The property is constructed of hamstone under a slate roof and has been designed to take advantage of the rural views across the farm and beyond. There are 3 principal reception rooms on the ground floor including a dining hall, drawing room and sitting room which all interlink. Adjoining the sitting room is an open plan kitchen/breakfast room with a central island, ample storage and various built-in appliances. The eastern part of the house comprises a study, utility room and cloak room which has the potential to be converted into downstairs living accommodation. Below this is a cellar/laundry room with a Belfast sink, further storage, wine room and boiler room with Vent-Axia heat recovery and air filtration systems.

The first floor is made up of 3 double bedrooms that are all en suite. The master bedroom benefits from triple aspect windows which provide 180 degree views over the farm and surrounding countryside, a large en suite with a bath and separate shower, and a dressing room. The second floor has a further two double bedrooms which share a bathroom.

Hillcombe Farm is a contemporary property which has been finished to an exceptional standard and specification. The house has been built to Modern Building Regulations Standard which necessitate outstanding build quality with a focus on energy efficiency and sustainability.

To the right of the farmhouse is a timber framed, 2 bay carport/log store with a one bedroom annexe above. There is an additional two double bedroom cottage with an independent garden, drive and terrace area which is currently used as a successful holiday let.

The land covers approximately 56 acres of permanent pasture of which has been subdivided into smaller fields by hedgerows providing adequate grazing for livestock usage. A hard core track over the farm allows easy access around the land into each field which are all entered via 5 bar gateways. The undulating topography offers an amenity atmosphere and provides rural views that are visible from the farmhouse. There are no footpaths or rights of ways across the land.
