LOOKING for a home with bags of character – and much more besides? Old Hillside House may well fit the bill.

A substantial period home, Old Hillside House as it stands today has been created by the joining of two properties – and it is this which earns it at least part of the 'much more' mentioned above because the wealth of generously-proportioned, beautifully-presented and feature-packed accommodation could easily be divided into a family home and self-contained annex, if desired. And that, as they say, opens the door for possibilities galore, including its use as a granny flat.

The ground floor accommodation is reached via a beamed entrance hall which leads to a spacious sitting room with a beamed ceiling and multi-fuel stove set on a flagged hearth; staircase hall which could be used as a library or further living space; cloakroom; study; dining room with a heavily beamed ceiling; light and bright garden room with a vaulted ceiling with Velux roof lights and double doors to the garden; a further living room/snug with a window seat and a Jetmaster fire with stone lintel, the utility room and the dining kitchen. This spacious room features country-style oak fronted wall and base units with solid wood work surfaces, a Belfast sink and cream four-oven Aga as well as two exposed ceiling beams and slate tiled floors.

Upstairs are the luxurious family bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath with marble surrounds and Jacuzzi corner shower/steam cubicle, plus four double bedrooms.

A second staircase from the utility room leads to an upstairs living room with exposed roof trusses, double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and exposed purlins and a shower room. It is this space which could be used as the self-contained annex.

Old Hillside House is set back behind a lawned garden with established borders and trees. At the rear of the house is a good-sized driveway, parking area, a double garage, a further

lawned garden and a flagstone patio area.

Old Hillside House is on the market at OIRO £575,000.
