Whitchurch Hill is a quiet, hilltop village lying on the edge of the Chilterns Escarpment close to the Thames Valley approximately 2 miles from Pangbourne on Thames with the surrounding countryside designated an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. Traditional timbered and thatched cottages overlook the village green as does the parish church of St John and there are many other period properties reflecting the differing architectural styles through the ages, which essentially form the character and provenance of this unspoilt rural community historically based on agriculture and farming. In Hill Bottom on the Northern edge of the village, is located the well-known Sun Inn, a Freehouse which has a good reputation for food.

At the bottom of the hill is the separate village of Whitchurch on Thames lying opposite the village of Pangbourne, which boasts a highly rated C. of E. Primary School and two popular Inns. Pangbourne on the Berkshire side of the River offers excellent shopping facilities including a co-op supermarket as well as a wide range of amenities including a mainline railway station with frequent commuter services to Reading and London (Paddington). There is a regular daily bus service to Reading from Woodcote via Pangbourne as well as good road communications particularly for Reading, Henley on Thames, Oxford, Newbury and both the M.40 and M4 motorway networks.

Hillbottom Close located on the North Eastern edge of Whitchurch Hill in the part called Hill Bottom, comprises a small cul-de-sac of differing detached houses and bungalows which enjoy a pleasant, quiet, and safe aspect, being mainly arranged around a large circular Green fringed by Cherry Trees noted for their prolific Spring Blossom.

N.B. Each householder pays a nominal sum towards the upkeep of the central Green.

Dating from the mid 1960’s, a detached family home situated in a spacious plot of approaching ¼ of an acre, in a pleasant and quiet village close, with obvious scope potential for enlargement subject to the relevant permissions.

The front door leads into an Entrance Lobby with door into a Cloakroom, an internal door to the Garage & Workshop and door into the spacious Reception Hall. Off the central hall leads the Sitting Room which spans the width of the house and has a fireplace and patio doors onto the terrace, the Dining Room, and the Kitchen with side door.

To the first floor is a large landing leading to the Master Bedroom with Shower and superb open views, 2 further Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. All bedrooms benefit from in-built wardrobes.

The property occupies an attractive position overlooking the circular central lawned green of this quiet Close of detached properties. The green itself is neatly lawned and interspersed with a number of mature Cherry trees which give a fabulous blossom in the Spring. The front garden is open plan being lawned with planted borders and an entrance drive leading down to the integral garage. A side gate provides external access to the rear garden.

The garden at the rear of the house is the largest in the close, with the house sitting in a plot of approximately 0.219 acres in all. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with surrounding beds and borders containing a variety of plants, shrubs and flowers. Across the rear of the house is a wide paved terrace leading off the sitting room and ideal for ‘al-fresco’ dining taking advantage of the South-East aspect. The lawn opens up at the further end of the garden, with a timber storage shed tucked away in the corner.
