Hill Farm is a rare opportunity indeed. It is not very often that a beautifully maintained period cottage set in its own mature gardens with range of useful outbuildings, mature woodland and grass paddocks totalling some 27.78 acres comes onto the open market.
The property is set in an idyllic location on its own with no immediate neighbours, yet close to the amenities in the nearby market town of Bingham some two miles from the property, with the A52 one mile away providing excellent road access to Nottingham and Leicester.
The property has a very special feel as you drive up the long private tree lined drive from Granby Lane. In through a pair of double gates you approach a gravelled circular drive which leads you to the front and side of the property with mature trees and gardens in an idyllic setting.
The property dates back to the late 19th century and over the last 20 years the present owners have substantially extended the home using reclaimed materials to match the existing Victorian brick and slate. More recently the property has seen the addition of a fantastic garden room to the rear of the property with a slate roof. Other improvements include hand crafted oak window frames and doors.

On the ground floor there is a spacious entrance hall, sitting room with doors opening through to a good sized dining room, fully fitted kitchen with hand made painted units with a separate breakfast area. A side hallway leads through to a further beamed sitting room, there is a ground floor shower room and fitted utility room. There is also a beautiful garden room with access from the breakfast kitchen. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a separate dressing/laundry room.
Outside the L shaped range of timber garaging, stabling and store rooms comes from Scotts of Thrapstone. The private landscaped gardens encompass the property on all four sides with a delightful sitting area to the rear of the property.
There is a substantial area of enclosed paddocks/pasture land to the rear as well as two triangular paddocks either side of the main driveway. There is an area of mature woodland and a pond, with a secondary access onto Conery Lane.
The property has oil fired central heating and double glazing and is tastefully decorated throughout in neutral shades.
