Whitchurch on Thames is a picturesque village situated on the South Oxfordshire bank of the River Thames, opposite Pangbourne in Berkshire, lying at the foot of the Chilterns Escarpment as it meets the Thames Valley, the area designated as being of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

Little changed over the years and without the intrusive development that has marked many villages, Whitchurch retains its tranquil setting by the Thames with numerous riverside and country walks available locally.  The stretch of the river between Whitchurch and Streatley is particularly scenic and formed the basis of local author Kenneth Graham’s immortal book ‘The Wind in the Willows’.  The village boasts an interesting history with a wealth of period and character properties reflecting a rich architectural heritage, many Listed as being of ‘special architectural and historical merit’ especially along the High Street itself which is now a ‘Conservation Area’.

There are two ‘Olde Worlde’ Inns, a well respected primary school, an Art Gallery with works by local artists and a village Cricket Ground supported by an enthusiastic village team.

The larger village of Pangbourne on Thames, within walking distance and connected by a privately owned Toll Bridge over the River from Whitchurch, offers a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including a supermarket, WH Smith, banks, impressive new health centre, library, dentist and, importantly, a main line railway station providing fast commuter services to Reading and London (Paddington) in just over the half hour. There are also excellent road communications providing easy access to Reading, Newbury, Oxford, Henley and the M4 Motorway at Theale.  In addition to state schools there is a wide selection of private schools in the immediate local area giving ample choice.

17 Hillside built in approximately 1973, occupies a delightful elevated position above Hardwick Road screened by grassed banks topped by mature hedges and is located on the Southern end of a staggered terrace of three, approached over a short cul-de-sac road leading directly off Hardwick Road itself.

This attractive and charming 3 bedroom home benefits greatly from having recently been extended and refurbished to an excellent standard, with new largely glazed open plan family room leading off the kitchen, and refurbished original parquet flooring to the entrance hall and sitting room. Tastefully presented throughout, careful planning and attention has been provided affording modern open plan living with that of a rather more traditional nature. Early viewing is advised in order to appreciate the superior setting and accommodation.

The property is located at the end of a short tree lined cul-de-sac road in an advantageous position on the Southern end of a terrace and benefits from an elevated position above road level with established hedges providing natural privacy and protection. 

At the front there is a lawned garden with sycamore trees standing astride the front boundary and with attractive borders and a climbing wall hydrangea and roses trained up the front elevation. 

At the side of the property a pedestrian gate gives access through into the rear garden which has a sheltered South and Westerly aspect with close boarded fencing around 2 sides and tall hedging along the remaining boundary.  The garden is lawned, flanked by interesting flower and shrub borders and with a flagged patio terrace leading off the house providing the perfect private spot for al-fresco dining and entertaining. To one corner is a useful timber storage shed. 

The property has a garage in separate block, located at the end of the cul-de-sac, with the garage belonging to No.17 being the first in the row and measuring approximately 17’6 x 7’10.
