Built in 1737, with later additions, this Grade II listed building is recorded in Nikolaus Pevsner's unrivalled 'The Buildings of England: Berkshire’. Set over four floors, with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside, this large, former farmhouse provides comfortable family living in an attractive historic setting.

The central entrance hall links all the ground floor reception rooms, with spacious south facing drawing and dining rooms overlooking the front gardens each with large sash windows filling the rooms with light, and attractive open fireplaces. To the rear of the house the study, with French window opening into the garden, is filled with afternoon sunlight; with a separate private library for quiet reading space. The family room provides an additional space for the family to relax and leads into a large, dual aspect country style kitchen/breakfast room with tiled floor, fitted units, oil-fired Aga and separate oven with hob for convenience. The kitchen also accesses the utility room, larder and a boot room with access out into the gardens. A separate staircase leads down into a large cellar with skylighting for additional storage or work space. Rising to the first floor, the long landing links the master bedroom, with useful in-built storage, separate ensuite bathroom and shower, with three further good sized bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate cloakroom. There are also two further bedrooms on the second floor.

Hillfoot House is on the edge of Beenham village, home to the highly regarded ‘Six Bells’ country pub and a village primary school. The nearby villages of Southend Bradfield and Upper Bucklebury each have a general shop and Southend Bradfield also has a Post Office; whilst the farm shop on the A340 at Englefield sells a wide range of local produce. Pangbourne is only 7 miles away and provides a wider range of local facilities including an award winning butcher, a specialist cheese shop, as well as a range of restaurants and pubs. There is also a rail link to London Paddington in less than hour. The more comprehensive amenities of Reading and Newbury are 10 and 8 miles respectively. The local area is also well served by an excellent range of schooling including Elstree School, Kennet School, Bradfield College, Downe House and Brockhurst & Marlston House. Despite its idyllic rural setting, the M4 (J12) is just 6 miles away and provides excellent access to the West Country, London and its airports.

The garden to the front of the house provides a clue to the property's past, as a highly regarded and very productive fruit farm. The south facing garden is mostly laid to open lawn interspersed with a number of fruit trees, including several mature apple, a plum and two cherry trees. A wide gravel driveway with a central feature bed with box hedging provides an attractive setting for the front of the house, as well as ample off road parking and access to the detached double garage. Flower beds provide year round variety in an attractive natural setting. To the rear of the house, the south westerly facing terraced garden includes open lawn space as well as tiered beds for cottage gardening, and a substantial greenhouse.
