The Property

Mole Hill Farm is a substantial detached house recently constructed by the current owners and finished to a high specification.

The property offers flexible living accommodation over three floors, combined with high quality finishes, surround sound system throughout, underfloor heating to the majority of rooms, CCTV camera system, contemporary bathrooms and quality kitchen.

The front door opens into a spacious reception hall, which is divided from the dining room by a feature central brick fireplace with dual aspect multi-fuel stove. The limestone floor has underfloor heating which runs throughout the ground floor to the main reception rooms. The windows are a mixture of stone mullions and oak framed leaded panes, and a Cliffy Chapman limestone staircase with attractive wrought iron balustrading leads to the first floor. Double oak doors lead in to the drawing room/media room which is fitted with a range of Macassar ebony wood cabinets and display shelving, and a wall mounted woodburning fire. There are uninterrupted views over the gardens and countryside beyond.

The spacious, dual aspect  breakfasting kitchen is fitted with a range of Herrington Gate furniture in Pippy oak and walnut and a dresser with a painted finish, with complementary granite work surfaces incorporating Siemens ceramic hob, conventional oven, and dishwasher. The Sub Zero American-style fridge freezer and wine cooler are built in to a walnut garage, and there is a four oven electric Aga.

Steps lead down to the garden room, which has fabulous views over open countryside and a sandstone fireplace housing a Jøtul LPG gas stove. Off the kitchen is a rear hallway with access to the ground floor cloakroom/WC and utility/boot room which has matching units to the kitchen with plumbing for a washing machine.

Stairs lead from the reception hall to the first floor landing, which is flooded with natural light, where there is a study with a feature window and deep window seat. The master bedroom leads off the main landing into a dressing room which is fitted with bespoke shelving. Opposite is the en-suite bathroom with stone bath, twin vanity basins set on a walnut storage unit, large walk-in cubicle with rain shower, WC, and TV set in to the wall. The bedroom has parquet flooring, a contemporary wall- mounted gas fire, and has stunning views.

There are two further bedrooms, both with dressing rooms, parquet flooring and built in walnut and sycamore dressing tables, which share a Jack and Jill bathroom with a contemporary white suite comprising bath, separate shower, twin vanity basins set on a walnut storage unit and WC.

A further staircase leads to the second floor leisure suite currently used as a hobby/TV room with a fitted bar featuring fridge, built-in wine cooler and sink. Completing the accommodation is a WC, and the plant room housing the oil fired boiler and hot water cylinder.


Mole Hill Farm is approached through double gates along a graveled driveway leading to a generous parking and turning area. Directly in front of the house is an attractive cobbled turning circle. There are sweeping lawns to the rear of the property with fabulous views and a large pond.

Agents Note

There are extensive equestrian facilities, a holiday cottage and land available by separate negotiation.
