If you go down in the woods today, You’re sure of a big surprise. This classic poem describes this property and its grounds perfectly.

In finer detail

Hillford House is an individually designed country residence that sits in approximately 5.2 acres of enchanting space with private woodland which includes your own babbling brook. The property was originally a thatched cottage dating back to 1945, over the decades numerous extensions and changes have transformed it into a large country home. With accommodation approaching 4500 square feet Hillford House is now looking for the next owner to create their own history on the property.

Due to the size of the plot the possibilities of what could be done are almost endless, a quick glance along the road should provide the reassurance that changes are welcomed in the area, the limits will be your imagination and budget.

What strikes you when you first approach the property is its fantastic position being surrounded by countryside on the edge of the pretty village of Barford. The property is placed in the middle of the plot giving you a feeling of openness and space. Rarely will you find a plot as visually interesting as this, the banked private woodland creates a quiet serene place, with the relaxing sounds of water flowing allowing you to embrace your own natural paradise and switch onto natures soundtrack. The wood attracts an abundance of local wildlife from rabbits, deer’s and muntjacs. The wide range of mature trees makes this an ornithologists dream. The wildflowers including snowdrops and daffodils create a carpet of colour during the spring months. With your own ‘secret garden’ it’s no wonder that Hillford House has been the hub for social gatherings a tradition that will no doubt carry on to the next custodians. Being surrounded by nature it’s easy to forget another vital component that makes the property so special and that’s how close it is to key amenities. The village is excellently located for both access to the motorway network and nearby towns of Warwick, Leamington Spa, and Stratford-Upon-Avon.

The current owners have made significant changes to the property allowing the accommodation to be used with great flexibility, it can be used as one or as two residences seamlessly. So, whether you are thinking of combining family resources but want to retain independent living or perhaps you need space for a dependant relative. Alternatively, you may have a need to run a business from home or need to safely store multiple vehicles. Regardless of your requirements, Hillford House will be able to accommodate your needs perfectly.

The owner’s passion for motorsports shows in the 5 garages. Split into two separates blocks, a double and a triple. The latter being a substantial structure (48’10 long) that was designed to be future proofed so if the need ever arose it would be a simple change to convert it into a detached annex.

The main house is arranged over two floors and due to its cottage heritage, the layout is made up of a large number of individual rooms. If a more modern layout is preferred it would be very straightforward to combine rooms together to create larger open-plan spaces. The property is entered into a light bright hall, first on the right is the drawing room with dual aspect windows, French doors giving views and access to the gardens, original parquet flooring, and an open fire which provides a lovely focal point to the room. Next along is the dining room another nicely proportioned room which is located at the rear affording views over the grounds. A door connects the dining room and kitchen together. The kitchen is again located at the rear, the breakfast bar is the perfect place to catch up with friends and family. If a bigger kitchen is preferred, then simply removing the dividing wall between the rooms would create the desired large open plan kitchen/family room. To gain access to the other wing you proceed through the inner hall which is blessed with excellent storage. This leads to a useful study off which is a practical utility room. As you move along you enter into the second wing of the house which, as mentioned earlier, could be used as a separate dwelling thanks to its own access and facilities. To the ground floor is a private front door which leads into a small hall which has a second staircase giving access to the first floor, off here is a good-sized modern kitchen which in turns leads to another impressive reception room.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms four of which are good-sized double rooms. Four out of the five bedrooms are located to the rear so have elevated views over the gardens. The three biggest bedrooms all benefit from modern en-suites ideal for those with teenagers in the family. The main bedroom is blessed with 6 large built-in wardrobes, the second and third largest boasts their own walk-in wardrobes.

Gardens & Grounds

The property is situated within approximately 5.2 acres. The gardens and grounds surround the property and have a range of mature trees, herbaceous shrub bed borders, orchards, and a private wood with a babbling brook. Within the grounds, there is a timber-constructed double garage which could serve as a stable block. In front of this is a flat section of ground that could lend itself to those with an equestrian interest. On the opposite side of the plot is a large brick-built triple garage that benefits from power, light, W.C, and large attic space. The formal gardens are mainly laid to lawn with attractive open views over the fields beyond. There is a raised paved terrace area from which you enjoy panoramic views across the parkland and the countryside beyond. All of which sit behind electric gates.
