A splendid modern country house built in the classic Georgian style, set within the heart of this period village. Hill House was constructed in the 1990s by the well- known builders, John Wakefield, who are renowned for their detail and high quality workmanship.
This is a fine village property offering spacious and light family accommodation with high ceilings and good proportioned rooms.

The property enjoys fine views across Breedons Hill to the Chiltern Hills in the distance and is set in spacious, pretty landscaped gardens to front and rear, also owning the shrubbery in front of the property below the formal front garden.
The architectural detail is outstanding, to include contrasting red brick quoins, soldier brick above the windows over the large sash windows throughout, a bold porch with Doric columns, a pair of panelled doors giving access with traditional fanlight window over, and an outstanding stone pediment to the first floor front elevations flanked by modillion under eave brackets.
To one side there is plenty of car parking and access to an attractive double garage in keeping with the period.
