Hillesden is a rural hamlet situated around four miles from the market town of Buckingham, where there is a good range of shopping and leisure facilities, a library, and dental and GP surgeries. A wider range of facilities can be found in Milton Keynes (16.5 miles) and Bicester (11 miles).

The area is well served for schools, with The Royal Latin Grammar School at Buckingham, Akeley Wood and Thornton College. Further afield, Stowe, Beachborough, Winchester House, Tudor Hall and Bloxham, plus the Oxford schools including The Dragon, St Edwards, Magdalen and Headington.

Excellent communication links with good access onto the M40 motorway (Junction 9 or 10) approximately 9/6 miles away. Mainline train services from Bicester to London Marylebone (from approximately 50 minutes) and Milton Keynes to London Euston (from approximately 45 minutes).

College Farm comprises a pair of semi-detached period properties, being Orchard End and Pond View.

Both properties have been tenanted for several years (let on an A.S.T), and now require some updating and modernising throughout. The properties could remain as two semi-detached dwellings, or alternatively could be combined to create a unique family home in a fabulous rural location (subject to planning).

Orchard End has a sitting/dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. There are three bedrooms with a family bathroom.

Pond View has an entrance hall leading to a dining room, sitting room, kitchen and utility room. There are three bedrooms and a good sized family bathroom.

Neither the cottages nor the barns are listed.

Both properties have good sized gardens. Orchard End has the more generous garden to the front and side, mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and borders.

A car port provides parking for both properties.

Outbuildings and Farm buildings
There is a good range of both traditional and modern farm buildings, in a courtyard setting. The main threshing barn is two storey and extends into a long red brick single storey barn with woodland to the rear and adjacent to the back of the cottage gardens. On the opposite side of the courtyard is a large U shaped single storey red brick barn which wraps around the open fronted car port and a modern general purpose barn.

From the adjacent road, access is gained to the modern general purpose barn and the Dutch barn with lean-to.

There are additional smaller buildings in the woodland together with old red brick pig sties and stores behind the cottages.

These barns could be suitable for conversion to a variety of uses, including residential, subject to planning.
