Quietly tucked away in a fold of the Berkshire Downlands is the small, rustic village of West Ilsley, surrounded by scenic rolling hills. A Roman road abounds the Parish on the west and above it is the ancient Ridgeway Path, which traces its timeless way across the Downs to Streatley where it crosses the Thames and onwards into the Chilterns. 

The village has an historically interesting array of rambling farmhouses, old cottages and barns and some fine houses, notably West Ilsley House, formerly the home of the Morland Brewing family, which dates from the Queen Anne period.  Close to the village is Hodcot House which is now a famous horseracing establishment formerly owned by the Queen.

The village, historically linked to farming and agriculture, still continues this rural way of life today remaining largely unspoilt, albeit it has become more residential benefiting from the excellent road communications. There is plenty going on for all age groups. The cricket and tennis clubs both have regular activities throughout the summer months for the younger members of the community. Not to be missed is the annual village fete and lively pre-fete dance.  The village website, provides further details and is well worth a visit.

There is also a thriving public house overlooking the cricket field and pavilion which has become well known for its food.  For rail commuters there are fast regular mainline services up to London (Paddington) from nearby Didcot.

The village also benefits from having excellent education close at hand including the renowned ‘Downs’ secondary school at Compton and St Helen’s & St Katharine’s for Girls and Abingdon Boys Schools. More state and private schools can be found within easy access including the popular East Ilsley primary school.



9 Main Street is the right hand side of a pair of cottages sitting in an elevated positon on the edge of West IIsley.  The stable front door leads into a tiled spacious hallway, giving access to all downstairs living space, as well as the staircase.  To the right of the hall is a good sized study or office, which could also be a play room.  There is a cloakroom off the far end of the hallway and there is a useful under stairs cupboard for storage.  There are painted glass panelled doors into the dining room, which is fully carpeted and the room offers much character with exposed beams in the wall. The living room is fully beamed and hosts a large wood-burner and lovely bay window capturing far reaching views across the fields.  The kitchen is of modern design, creating a lovely contrast to the properties age.  The staircase is solid oak with glass sides continuing the contemporary theme.  The master bedroom offers good space and has French doors leading directly out to the top decked sitting area.  It also benefits from a modern wet room.  There are 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom which has  a bath and separate shower.


The property is accessed through a small gate with steps up to the front of the house which overlooks the fields beyond.  There is a large tiled terrace, perfect for alfresco dining.  The garden continues round the side of the house and up to the rear decking area with further lawned garden beyond.   The garage is at the bottom of the property with a separate bin store attached.
