Originally two cottages dating back to about 1800, Hilltop Cottage has been extended and renovated over the years to create a spacious family home with excellent entertaining rooms set in approximately 0.74 of an acre with far reaching views over rolling countryside.
Hilltop Cottage is a spacious family home situated in a stunning location, within the North Wessex Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to many local amenities. This well presented and generously proportioned four bedroom home has excellent entertaining rooms on the ground floor and large bedrooms on the first floor. Outside, the property is approached via a gravelled drive with parking for up to four cars in front of the double garage.
The gardens and grounds are well laid out and planted with interesting specimen plants and trees. There is a wide terrace at the back of the house leading to a large circular lawn with planting on the edges. There is more lawn beyond and on one side of the garden there is a pretty pond with an extensive old vegetable garden behind, separated by hedging and trained roses on rope swags.
Bucklebury, West Berkshire
Hilltop Cottage is situated on the edge of one of the hamlets on Bucklebury Common, an area of managed woodland. The village lies about 6 miles north east of Newbury with its extensive facilities and is conveniently located for access to the A34 and M4.
Newbury, Thatcham and Theale all have mainline stations (Paddington line) and Crossrail services from Reading are expected to start in the near future with two Elizabeth line trains an hour (four an hour at peak time) which will allow passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains.
Bucklebury Village has a church and village hall; nearby Upper Bucklebury has a post office store and pub, and bordering Chapel Row has a doctor’s surgery, pub and cafe. There is a good network of footpaths and bridleways and there are cross country walks to pubs at both Stanford Dingley and Frilsham.
