Knowle Hill House was built in the 1947 and has been updated by the current owners in recent years. The arrangement of accommodation has been designed to take advantage of the position with spectacular panoramic views from the first floor drawing room. Of particular note is the superb kitchen / family room which forms the heart of the house and provides ample space for cooking, eating and sitting. From the family room, stairs lead down to the cinema or television room which could also be used as a playroom. On this floor there is also a vaulted wine cellar as well as access to a small patio with a spiral staircase to the garden.
On the ground floor, as well as the kitchen / family room, there is a sitting room, study, cloak room, utility room and door to the annexe.
On the first floor is a very impressive drawing room which has large windows which beautifully frame the exceptional views. There are also four bedrooms a bathroom and shower room which adjoins the master bedroom. From the landing a staircase leads to a loft room which has planning permission for conversion into further living space and indeed part of this conversion work has already been completed.
EPC rating D.
The ground floor annexe is reached via the main hall and contains a well-appointed kitchen / breakfast room, a sitting room, double bedroom, bathroom, cloakroom and utility room. The annexe also has its own front door and can therefore be used as an entirely independent unit. Conversely, with the appropriate permissions, one could rearrange the space internally to give more accommodation on the ground floor of the main house.
