Historic Hill Crest provides perfect modern day living in stunning rural setting

What were once two blacksmiths’ cottages and a forge have been sympathetically combined to form one specious and characterful four bedroom cottage.

Hill Crest, which dates back to the 1700s, has been brought to the market by Solihull agents DM & Co. Homes with a variety of options for would-be purchasers.

The detached property at Sherborne Hill, near Warwick, has outstanding open views over the Avon Valley.

Although it is currently a family home, it has previously thrived as a Bed & Breakfast and could easily be used for a similar use again, subject to planning permission.

Matthew Perry, sales negotiator in DM & Co. Homes’ Dorridge office, said: “This is a property with potential and has something for everyone.

“It’s location between Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon with access to the national motorway network and trains nearby to major cities makes it perfect for partial working from home in a delightful setting.”

Hill Crest and Old Forge Cottage are the two former blacksmiths’ cottages that now form one residence.

Hill Crest Cottage is the larger of the two residences and the accommodation comprises sitting room with open fireplace, characterful beams and quarry tile flooring. The ground floor includes a snug with log burner which would make a perfect work-from-home office.

To the rear is the kitchen, which in turn opens to the conservatory offering fabulous garden views.

The main lounge can be accessed both from the rear lobby and the conservatory and again, with French doors directly to the garden, is a light and spacious room.

The outbuildings, including useful store room, utility room and workshop can also be accessed via the lounge.

Old Forge Cottage provides further accommodation which is accessed via the conservatory. To the front is a characterful dining room with feature fireplace which also offers versatile space.

The fourth bedroom is on the ground floor, overlooking the rear garden, and is complemented by a shower room and separate guest cloakroom. There is also a further utility room on this side of the property.

The combined properties come with two staircases. In Old Forge Cottage upstairs there is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. The stairs from Hill Crest Cottage leads to two further double bedrooms. The principal bedroom has useful storage cupboard and access to the family bathroom, and the other benefits from a large en-suite shower room. There is the opportunity to connect the two cottages on the first floor via a hidden door.

The property is accessed from a slip road and there is a large in and out driveway providing parking for several vehicles, access to the garage and car port and gated access to the rear.

Matthew Perry added: “The garden contains a summer house which is perfect to enjoy the views – and the views are what makes this particular property so special.

“Stepping into the rear garden, you have the most spectacular views over the Warwickshire countryside. The large, mature garden, has established fruit trees, an expanse of lawn with ornamental pond and a terrace perfect for al fresco dining.

“To the side there is further land with a greenhouse and outbuildings, and this would be perfect for those looking to set up a small holding.”

Hill Crest is on the market for overs over £600,000.
