Hilliers is an interesting Arts and Crafts property situated in a glorious position with long views of its grounds and farmland beyond. Hilliers was built around the turn of the 20th Century and enjoys large generous light reception rooms, spilling out onto south facing terraces, taking advantage of this rural outlook. Valuably unlisted, Hilliers already has an enviable layout, but there is further scope to alter the property with the necessary consents. Of particular note is the fantastic family room, bathed in light by large French windows, with log burning stove and conveniently located off the kitchen. For more formal occasions there are well proportioned dining and drawing rooms, both situated off the reception hall. In more recent years a conservatory style orangery has been added allowing year round enjoyment of the view.

Hilliers is situated in the sought after village of Chapel Row in the parish of Bucklebury, which has its own pub and interior design shop. Stanford Dingley is the neighbouring village, and has a beautiful Saxon church and two public houses, The Old Boot which dates back to the 18th Century and The Bull dating back to the 15th Century.
Bucklebury lies just a short distance away with a primary school, parish church, and acres of common land, owned by The Bucklebury Estate.
Pangbourne is only a short distance away and provides a wider range of local facilities including an award winning butcher, a specialist cheese shop, as well as restaurants and pubs. There is also a rail link to London, Paddington within the hour.
The more comprehensive amenities of Reading and Newbury are 8 and 10 miles respectively. The M4 (J12) is just 6 miles away and provides excellent access to the West Country, London and its airports.
The local area is well served by an excellent range of schooling including Elstree School, Kennet School, Bradfield College, Downe House and Brockhurst & Marlston House. There are also recreational facilities for all requirements and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walks and rides.

Hilliers is approached via a tree lined drive and sits in an elevated position. The gardens have been imaginatively cultivated close to the house and as the grounds emanate away from the building, they move into parkland and paddocks. There is an equestrian centre comprising stables, hay barn, tack room and outdoor manege. To the west of the house are a range of outbuildings and garages. There is a tennis court as well as an orchard.
