This is your opportunity to purchase a piece of Skelton’s history…

‘Hill View’ as it is known today, was originally named ‘Belle Villa’ and built in July 1876 by the brothers George and Henry Stobbs from Northumberland. It served as Henry Stobbs main residence, with his brother George living at the identical neighbouring property named Fern Villa. Henry served as the mine manager for Skelton and East Cleveland mine and therefore the property carried a higher status within this typical mining village, overlooking East Cleveland and the North East Coastline.

The property has been occupied by the current vendors since the 1980’s as a substantial family home with an abundance of family living accommodation and offers a wealth of Period features including plaster corniced ceilings and centre roses, brass light fittings, high ceilings, picture windows, a grand sweeping staircase with balustrade gallery landing, a drawing room, separate dining room, a large family kitchen, separate utility room, a ground floor Cloakroom, access to the garage and rear workshop and the property offers a most useful basement cellar accessed through ‘a secret doorway’ situated in the main reception hallway, formerly used as a playroom for the current owners children.

The established private walled gardens enjoys a great amount of privacy, set behind local dressed stone retaining walls with manicured lawns, well stocked planting, mature trees and borders and the property enjoys many species of visiting wildlife including a resident owl, pheasants and even local deer have been spotted to the rear of the property, which is not overlooked and has a wooded embankment stretching towards fields within Skelton Green.

Situated in an elevated position above and overlooking Skelton having enviable views of Upleatham Hills and the coastline stretching from Hartlepool across to Saltburn by the Sea, this property cannot fail to impress!. The Hills is home to less than twenty residential homes, all bespoke built with individual charm and character and this location has always been very much sought after, highly respected by the community. Not only does the setting of the property give a sense of peace and tranquillity, the area is surrounded by beautiful countryside walks and resides on the Cleveland Way walk-way.

You cannot fail to be impressed with the location and elegant design this unique property has to offer and we therefore recommend an early internal inspection via the sole agents.
