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).
The property is believed to date back to the late 1800s. Originally a pair of semi-detached cottages, which were converted into one dwelling. It has been tenanted for a number of decades, and It now requires extensive updating and modernisation throughout, but would create a unique family home in a fabulous rural location.
The entrance porch leads to a reception/family room, leading to the sitting room which has a woodburner stove. The kitchen has a useful pantry, and leads to a dining room with adjacent utility room.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one with an adjoining dressing room/nursery. There is also a family bathroom.
The gardens wrap around the property, predominantly laid to grass, with mature trees and planting. A brick outbuilding provides additional storage. There is parking to the front and side of the property, with additional visitor parking on the small lane.
