Property: Three To View Away From It All
Saturday 05 September 1998
IT WOULD be hard to find a more private house than Smith Hill Farm. The Grade II-listed thatched, three-bedroom cottage stands in six acres of its own land in the heart of Dartmoor. It has long river frontage, and the owner has a licence from the Duchy of Cornwall to fish. It is surrounded by moorland that is inaccessible to the public. Its kitchen has terracotta floor, granite fireplace and Aga. The double reception room has exposed beams and two granite fireplaces. Outside are two loose boxes, a stable block and walled garden. Offers over pounds 120,000 to Mansbridge & Balment (01822 855055).
FAR REMOVED from people and traffic is Ellis Green Cottage, reached via a small, unmarked road and then a track, eight miles from Audley End station in Essex. The Grade II-listed thatched cottage stands in just under two acres, with garden, paddock and a modern, weather-boarded studio/garage. The four-bedroom cottage is in need of improvement, but has a dining-room, sitting-room with inglenook fireplace and bread oven. Two staircases lead to the first floor bedrooms, which all have sloping ceilings. If you need company, there's a village pub, the White Hart, in Wimbish. Offers of pounds 250,000 to Trembath Welch (01371 872117).
