Hellidon is a pretty rural village situated in attractive undulating south Northamptonshire countryside not far from the borders of south Warwickshire and north Oxfordshire. The village has a public house and parish church. More specialist facilities can be found nearby at Daventry including Waitrose and at Leamington Spa. Connection onto the motorway network is found at junction 12 (Gaydon 14 miles) and junction 11 (Banbury 14 miles) for the M40 and junction 16 (Upper Heyford 11 miles) for the M1. Mainline train services are at Rugby (16 miles) for London Euston (journey time 50 minutes), Long Buckby (10 miles) for London Euston and Banbury (14 miles) for London Marylebone (journey time from 54 minutes).

Hillside House is situated in a slightly elevated position on a quiet village lane with many attractive period features. Thought to date from 1671, with a later Victorian extension to the rear, the property is Listed Grade II and set over three floors. Constructed of local ironstone under a red tile roof, the house forms an L shape around a large flagstone terrace.

Accommodation and Grounds
The drawing room is double aspect with a log-burner set in a wood fireplace surround with a fitted corner cupboard and further shelving. The dining room has a beamed ceiling, a large inglenook fireplace, window seat and stone floor. The kitchen/breakfast room has extensive floor and wall cupboards with a new wooden floor and a window seat. To the rear is a double aspect sitting room with high ceiling height and fireplace with log burner.

The first floor has some exposed wood floors and four bedrooms (one en-suite), a family bathroom with shower. All these rooms have feature fireplaces. Wooden stairs rise to the second floor with two vaulted ceiling bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom. This area would make an ideal children’s or staff accommodation.

The grounds are south-west facing and comprise part lawn and part paddock. A gravel drive skirts this area and leads down to a parking area in front of a brick-built outbuilding divided into two rooms. This building has further potential to convert into home office space subject to planning. Next to the house is a wide entertaining terrace and low box hedging surrounding the flower beds.
