Hart House is a Grade II Listed semi-detached house with elements from the Elizabethan and Stuart eras and a Georgian frontage. The rooms are of notably generous size for its age and location. Exposed beams and period features add to the character of this sensitively restored property, which has been well-maintained by the present owners. Many of the rooms offer dual or triple aspect, and the house looks over the peaceful churchyard, the high street, and the river and the open countryside beyond.

The house has been kept in excellent repair, including a new rear roof and rear upstairs windows but there is scope for a new owner to
put his or her own seal on the property or to make different use of its versatility and charm. The accommodation is arranged over four floors. Quirky cupboards throughout the property offer plenty of storage. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, and features a wattle-and-daub wall with exposed timbers. To the left is the formal dining room and to the right is the spacious kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units, an island and integrated appliances. This room has two beautiful sash windows with deep window seats and original wooden shutters. A large fire-surround, made from local stone, houses the gas-fired Aga. Beyond are a utility room, cloakroom and rear lobby with access to the courtyard.

The first-floor landing has been restored to
make a feature of the house’s history, with a
brick and timber relief wall section revealing a
Tudor fire surround. The landing offers access
to a large dual-aspect drawing room with oak
flooring, exposed beams and wonderful views
across the churchyard towards the river on one
side, and over the town on the other. A small
inner hall leads to a guest cloakroom. On the
other side of the landing is a guest bedroom
with an attractive recessed Georgian fireplace
and en suite bathroom.

On the second floor is the master bedroom,
which has an en suite bathroom, and a family
room with triple aspect and a turning staircase
leading to the third floor. The family room has
its own balcony with superb river views and
access to the courtyard via exterior stairs. The third floor has two further bedrooms, one with en suite facilities and both with extensive eaves storage. These rooms offer particularly fine views of the estuary and open countryside beyond.

Given its unique position and the convenience of
road and rail connections, this property would work well as a family home for children of all ages or as a lock-up-and-leave holiday home. The second and third floors, with separate access and utility services, could easily be repurposed to form a separate apartment for additional income or as an annexe for visitors or family.

There is a charming trompe l’oeil picture window on the front façade, which gives on to an off-road parking space. To the rear of the house is a shared courtyard with access to the churchyard and the riverside.
