Hillside House is set well-back from the Petersfield Road up a long private driveway, and occupies an elevated and commanding position, with far-reaching views of beautiful Hampshire countryside. The property sits on a secluded plot of 0.7 acres, with ample parking, a larger than average double garage, a substantial workshop/outbuilding, and lovely gardens, which surround the house on three sides.

The main reception rooms are positioned at the front of the house and have large windows to make the most of the views of the surrounding countryside. The sitting room has an open fireplace with a painted surround and tiled hearth, and an impressive bay window, which allows plenty of light into the room. Double doors open to the dining room, which has a fireplace and an alcove storage cupboard.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of storage units and worktops, as well as an AGA cooker, and a view of the garden. There is a utility room and a useful cellar, which measures 4.6 by 4.2 metres and is a constant temperature of 12 degrees, ideal for keeping wine at, we understand! There is a study at the rear of the house, with an open fire and a door to the conservatory, which enjoys views of the garden.
On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms with built-in storage, a fourth single bedroom and a bathroom with a white suite. Stairs lead up to the second floor, where there is a master bedroom suite comprising a double bedroom, a landing/study and a bath/shower room with a white suite.
Outside, there is a sizeable double garage, with overhead storage and an up-and-over electric door. At the top of the garden there is a large workshop/outbuilding, which is divided into two rooms. It has power, light and 3 phase power connected. The beautiful garden wraps around three sides of the house, with a lawned garden at the rear and a vegetable garden at the side. There is a selection of fruit trees, flower/shrub borders and mature hedging.
Ropley is a sought after village where newcomers will be readily welcomed by the community and there is plenty of opportunity to join in with the multitude of local clubs and events should you wish to. It is a quiet village, but has easy access to the A31 and A32 which allow access to London, Winchester and the Midlands. Mainline rail access to London is from Petersfield and Alton. There is a good primary school in the village with a secondary school in nearby Alresford and sixth form education available in both Winchester and Alton.
