Rarely available in West Berkshire and within an hour’s commute to London , a small farm comprising an attractive period farmhouse, a range of traditional and modern farm buildings and approximately 33.62 acres IN TOTAL.
Hill Farm is situated in a small lane in an attractive rural location just west of Newbury. Although surrounded by countryside it is an easy short drive to the town centre, mainline station and a range of good local and independent schools.
Newbury town offers a good selection of shops and department stores, including the Parkway retail development and John Lewis, with a supermarket and retail park to the south of the town.
There are plenty of restaurants, cafés, public houses and leisure facilities, including Newbury Racecourse, the attractive Kennet & Avon canal, Vue cinema, Corn Exchange and Watermill theatres. There are arts and sports centres, health and golf clubs, a bowls club, museums and an outdoor market on Thursdays and Saturdays.
There are well regarded schools for all age groups and Newbury College, with its campus to the south of the town.
There is excellent access to the major road routes of A34 and M4 and the mainline rail station to London (Paddington).
Hill Farm is an interesting and individual period farmhouse which has been well maintained over the years but is now in need of some updating. The property is not Listed and both the house and the buildings provide a wonderful opportunity for a buyer to extend and improve the property.
There are also, subject to consents, endless possibilities for the buildings to be converted to provide additional accommodation or buildings for leisure pursuits if required.
Although Hill Farm has run as a dairy farm for many years it would also be an ideal opportunity for an equestrian buyer looking to establish property with good riding facilities.
Surrounding the house is an area of formal garden beyond which there is a more natural orchard and an area which was once used for vegetables. The range of traditional and modern buildings are all located to one side of the house and have the advantage of a separate access directly from the lane. The land is a particular feature of Hill Farm as it is all grassed and naturally undulating and also as the property is situated on a hill there are
lovely long views over the surrounding countryside.
