With a beautiful rural setting on the Berkshire and Hampshire border, easy access to Newbury, and excellent road and rail links to London, Bloor Homes’ Harwood Place development in Woolton Hill gives house buyers the best of all worlds.

The development is a superb collection four and five-bedroom properties, with prices ranging from £600,000 to £850,000, and is proving particularly popular with downsizers who have been attracted by the village’s tranquil setting and abundance of community activities.

Woolton Hill has an enviable range of amenities for a village of its size, with two primary schools, a post office, health centre and pub, as well as a number of community groups and clubs, including a gardeners’ club, tennis club and junior football team. There is also a popular monthly village market, offering the very best local produce.

And all this is set among beautiful green countryside, with The Chase, a 143-hectare area of woodland managed by the Natural Trust, located just to the north east. And only three miles to the south is the imposing splendour of Highclere Castle, famous as the real-life setting for Downton Abbey, and it’s 5,000-acre estate of beautifully landscaped gardens.
But despite Woolton Hill’s tranquil rural setting, the village is just five miles and a 15-minute drive away from Newbury town centre, enjoys excellent road and rail links to London, and is close to both the M3 and M4 motorways. Winchester can be reached in just over half an hour, and Reading, Swindon and Oxford in around 45 minutes.

Woolton Hill also offers excellent value compared to other locations on the Berkshire commuter belt, with prices at Harwood Place considerably lower than for similar properties in the Reading area. This despite the fact that Newbury is just 50 minutes by train from London Paddington, the same time it will take to get there from Reading on Crossrail.
Kim Willcock, Regional Sales Director at Bloor Homes Southern, said: “At Bloor Homes, we pride ourselves on building developments in only the best locations, and Harwood Place is no exception.

“Woolton Hill offers the benefits of countryside living with a range of amenities at close hand and excellent road and rail links which are ideal for commuters.

“I would encourage anyone looking for their dream rural retreat to visit our sales office at Harwood Place and find out more about the fantastic lifestyle they could be enjoying here.”
