Tenure: Freehold

Hodge Hill is a handsome detached double fronted property, forming part of an exclusive development of similarly substantial, yet individual homes constructed in 2013. Situated in a quiet and elevated position just outside Wantage, there are far reaching and stunning views over the rolling Oxfordshire countryside to the rear. The property has been thoughtfully designed with well proportioned rooms and all consideration has been given to the requirements of modern day living. The house has a contemporary country feel, decorated in a neutral palette throughout with an abundance of natural light.

The entrance hall is light and spacious, being double height with galleried landing above, and gives rise to the principal reception rooms. The sitting room has a large square bay window with white shutter blinds, an open fireplace and doors to the rear garden. Both the study and dining room are located to the front of the property, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room to the rear and is a wonderful social space with an excellent fitted kitchen with central island and which opens into a welcoming family area, perfect for relaxing and absorbing the spectacular vista over the rear garden. There is also an excellent dining space in the large square bay within the kitchen and doors to the garden. A utility room and cloakroom/WC complete the downstairs accommodation.

A central staircase leads up to the galleried landing with the master bedroom ensuite having a good range of fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom also has an en-suite and the two additional double bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.


Hodge Hill is situated in an elevated position just outside of the market town of Wantage.

Wantage is a market town and civil parish in the Vale of the White Horse set on the Letcombe Brook and the fringe of the Berkshire Downs about 8 miles south-west of Abingdon, a similar distance west of Didcot and 14 miles south-west of Oxford. Wantage offers a wide and comprehensive range of shops and leisure facilities, including a Sainsbury's and Waitrose, whilst more extensive facilities can be found in Newbury and Oxford. Oxfordshire and Berkshire has a wide choice of some excellent private schools particularly in the Abingdon and Oxford area.


Hodge Hill is accessed from Manor Road via a private lane leading to this prestigious small development, from which there is access through a brick archway into a large gravelled walled courtyard to the front of the property with parking for numerous vehicles. On entering the courtyard there are two open bay parking spaces with accommodation over comprising two good rooms which could be utilised either as home office space or could potentially be developed into ancillary accommodation (subject to necessary consents).

A pathway leads from the parking area to the imposing entrance of the house with a small lawned area on each side denoted by low box hedging.

The rear garden is quite simply a delight. French doors from the sitting room, kitchen and family room all lead out to an expansive terrace, ideal for entertaining, with landscaped well stocked flower beds and two ponds adjacent to the terrace. The garden is an excellent size, mainly laid to lawn and flanked with mature shrubbery. The end of the garden is fenced, but has an open aspect from which to enjoy the stunning and far reaching views over farmland to the rear. There is also a good sized garden store.
