House in Hinton St George, , Great Britain

Hinton St George is a quiet, unspoilt and picturesque village with Hamstone houses dating back to the 14th century. It is a very friendly community with an excellent village shop, award winning pub (The Lord Poulett), Dorothy’s tearoom and the village church. Our home is part of Hinton House which was the residence of the Earls Poulett from the 15th century until the death of the last Earl in 1973.  The original parkland surrounds it with lovely views to the south and west. It is a beautiful, tranquil spot. The Turret House is part of the original west wing and is on the right of the main photograph. This part of the house is built around a private courtyard which is at the rear. The Turret House has an area of lawn to the immediate front and side of the property. The terrace at the front faces west and is a lovely place to enjoy the sun in the afternoon and evening.
The house is on 4 levels. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms (one ensuite) and the main bathroom. The large kitchen and the dining room are on the floor below. There are steps from the kitchen down to the courtyard. On ground level is the main sitting room and front door with access to the garden. There is a door from this room down to the semi-basement where there is a study, utility room and downstairs cloakroom. The study has a double sofa bed and can be used as an extra bedroom.

I have exchanged more than 20 times including to France, Spain, Italy, Sardinia, Portugal, Sweden, Greece, Canada, London, Wales, California, New York, Washington, Cape Cod, Boston, Australia , ...enjoyed every one and never had a problem!
