Hill House, as the name suggests, lies on the southern side of Dinmore Hill, overlooking Bodenham nature reserve. The village of Bodenham provides a number of facilities, including a thriving primary school, shop and post office, pub, village hall, church, tennis courts and golf club. Further facilities are also available in the village of Wellington (3 miles) and at the market town of Leominster (7 miles) and Hereford (7 miles). There is a mainline train service from Hereford to London.

Hill House is a stunning Georgian property with accommodation set out predominantly over three floors. It has been updated and modernised by the current owners, who have retained many period features and offers substantial and versatile accommodation. The gardens are a particularly attractive feature and are well-stocked with a variety of mature trees and offer considerable privacy. There is a heated swimming pool with a retractable roof, and a large separate detached garage provides space for several cars and a first-floor studio above.

From a classic pillared porch, the front door leads into an imposing, yet welcoming hall, where a period staircase rises to the first floor. Off the hall is a stunning handmade kitchen/breakfast room which has been created by a local firm. This includes an extensive range of cupboards and drawers, granite working surfaces, integrated Bosch appliances (fridge, freezer and dishwasher), a fitted Mercury five-ring range-style cooker, a pantry cupboard and a large central island. The kitchen benefits from being dual aspect and is thus light and airy. On the other side of the hall, the living room features an open fireplace and original sash window. A small library contains fitted hand-made bookshelves, and a study features a fireplace with wood burning stove. All of the downstairs rooms offer views over the garden. A utility room provides ample space for a washing machine and dishwasher, and a boot room gives access to a family room in the basement, which features a large window and a door giving access to the garden.

On the first floor, the dual aspect master bedroom connects through to a second bedroom which is currently used as a dressing room and features an array of handmade fitted wardrobes. The house bathroom has been recently refurbished and includes a walk-in shower. There are a further three bedrooms on the first floor, all enjoying a lovely outlook over the gardens and grounds, and a further two bathrooms.

An enclosed staircase leads to the second floor and has separate access from the rear of the house and therefore the potential to create a self-contained apartment. It currently offers four bedrooms and a shower room.

Hill House is approached along a lane and then its own gated driveway which leads to a parking and turning area which provides access to a large detached garage with space for several vehicles. There is a separate workshop area, as well as a first-floor studio.

The gardens and grounds which extend to approximately two acres form a particular feature of Hill House and are south-facing and overlook the tranquillity of Bodenham nature reserve. There is a variety of specimen trees and shrubs, as well as extensive herbaceous borders. The majority of the garden is terraced with good sized lawn areas and various pathways to guide you through.

The garden also contains a covered, heated swimming pool, summer house, greenhouse, and a number of garden stores.
