Summary

Church Hill House dates back to the 1600's and originally was a public house called The Eagle and Child. This history explains the generous and impressive rooms the home offers. There is a charming frontage onto Caton Green Road but the house is accessed from the private, gated driveway at the rear. The driveway offers parking for plenty of vehicles and the grounds include a well stocked, mature garden with views and a double garage. Entrance to the home is through an impressive conservatory complete with grape vine.

Straight ahead leads to a welcoming reception style hallway. There is a sitting room with multi fuel stove and bespoke stone fireplace. The home has a generous, formal dining room with log burner, a kitchen diner and off the hallway a cloakroom and ground floor shower room. Upstairs are three generous double bedrooms, a beautiful bathroom with slipper bath and a potential 4th bedroom/office or dressing room with fitted cupboard space. The home is delightful throughout with character features in abundance and wooden beams on show.

The Living Accommodation

Entrance to the home is through a generous conservatory which even has grape vine. The conservatory looks out over the west facing garden and has views over roof tops to the fields beyond. From the conservatory a door to the side allows direct access to the kitchen diner and straight ahead is access into a welcoming reception style hallway. From the hallway the staircase with stripped wood and gallery landing winds up to the first floor. A glazed door leads straight ahead to the lounge and formal dining room and there is also a door to the kitchen diner. To the right a further a door opens to a generous cloakroom and from there to the ground floor shower room with three piece shower suite. Finally a small door accesses the stone steps leading to an arched cellar, the perfect wine cellar! Even with the thick stone walls, complete with window seat the reception rooms are bright and airy. The sitting room has three windows and the most superb focal point fireplace with bespoke carved stone lintel. The multi fuel stove makes a great feature but the home also enjoys full gas central heating. Exposed beams to the ceilings enhance the character feel of this property. The dining room to the side also has three windows to two elevations and again there is a focal fireplace. The kitchen diner is fitted with wooden cabinets incorporating pull out pantry style storage and with an integrated double oven, hob and extractor hood above. There is plumbing and space for a washing machine and slimline dishwasher. 'Finally a small door accesses the stone steps leading to a good sized arched cellar, the boiler is situated down here. We feel this space would make a perfect wine cellar, hobby room or even a gym.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

In addition to the ground floor shower room there is a first floor bathroom which has been updated in recent years. The freestanding slipper bath is the perfect choice and with two windows, exposed wood work and wooden flooring the bathroom has a hint of real luxury. There is a wash basin and low flush WC too. The three bedrooms are well proportioned and surprisingly generous, there are also fitted wardrobes. The final door off this gallery landing opens to a generous store room with fitted cupboard and under eaves storage.

Outside
