Originally, Lion Hill House was a medieval jetty house and over the centuries it has been extended and history shows that it was previously the Vicarage and then prior to being a private residential home, it was the Red Lion public house, which closed in 2011. The house was then purchased by the current owners who have spent the last 10 years renovating it with the guidance of the necessary governing bodies, to a quite magnificent, spacious and elegant family home.

The west facing rear garden is very private and thoughtfully landscaped and additionally benefits from a large terrace that is a stunning sun trap and is beautifully presented.

Front door leading to entrance hallway with stairs leading to first floor landing, solid oak flooring, understairs storage cupboard housing valve for underfloor heating and electrics.
