Believed to date to 1753, Woodhill House offers character and elegance with features including white-painted stucco elevations, a porch with columns and pilaster, ground floor windows with arched centre panels and sash apertures, and interiors which showcase Adam-style neo-classical design and architecture.

The generous reception hall has geometric tiling to the floor and a centre-piece fireplace giving a flavour of the grandeur of the accommodation to be found within this property. The adjacent staircase hall is dominated by a striking curved stairway which sweeps upwards, culminating on a top floor where an oval dome, topped by an octagonal lantern allows natural light to flood inside. A stylish drawing room features a double-aspect bay with double doors giving access to the garden and swimming pool that provides a seating area alongside the fireplace, with adjoining formal dining space. The kitchen offers fitted wall and base level cabinetry, topped with granite work surfaces and upstands, an island unit and a curved bench seat to one corner for informal dining. There is a further sitting room, along with a cloakroom and w.c at this level, with stairs to access a cellar.

On the first floor, there are three spacious bedrooms, all en suite with two having a dressing room (one of the dressing rooms, formerly bedroom five) all with fitted wardrobes. The staircase leads to the second floor to a further bedroom and bathroom.
