Hill House is an ideally situated period country house in a desirable location on the outskirts of Old Alresford. For sale for the first time since 1938, the house offers spacious, well proportioned rooms with high ceilings and large windows. There are many period details including sash windows and decorative cornicing. Being unlisted the property provides scope for modernisation and potentially extension (subject to the necessary planning).

Approached from the lane, and set behind a brick and flint wall, there is a gravel parking area to the front of the house. The front door opens into the welcoming reception hall which has wood flooring and large partial arch head windows. From here doors lead to the sitting room which has French doors to the garden and the more formal drawing room which has a large bay window overlooking the garden. To the back of the house are the dining room and breakfast room which sit either side of the back hall. To the north-east end of the house is a kitchen, larder and utility room with a separate door to the outside. There is a second staircase from this area to the first floor. Stairs lead to the first floor where the principal bedroom has double aspect and has an adjoining bathroom and separate dressing room. There are six further bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry room, linen store and cloakroom over this floor. On the second floor are four large unconverted attic rooms.

In a courtyard setting, close to the main house, is the main garage and stable block. There is an external staircase to the first floor flat which is made up of a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and three bedrooms. There is a further outbuilding with a single garage, store and a stable.

The gardens are stunning and have been part of the National Garden Scheme for some years. Designed and planted in a traditional English country style, the grounds extend to over 5 acres. A spectacular herbaceous border provides the backdrop to a large croquet lawn. There is a sunken garden planted to attract butterflies and a productive kitchen garden with two greenhouses. Within the grounds there is a hard tennis court and 2 paddocks.

Hill House lies in a tranquil parkland setting, close to the Georgian market town of Alresford which has a wide range of independent shops and restaurants. Winchester is about 8 miles away and Alton is about 10 miles away both with direct rail lines to London Waterloo. Independent schools in the area include Princes Mead, Twyford, The Pilgrims' School, St Swithun's, Winchester College, Perins in Alresford and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College.
