Bourton on the Hill, Moreton-in-Marsh, GL56

Guide price


Hillcrest House is an excellent opportunity to acquire a substantial building plot which has a planning consent to build a detached contemporary residence of over 5000sqft set in an elevated position. Overlooking the well regarded and highly sought-after village of Bourton on the Hill. The architecturally designed property is arranged over three floors, and it has been designed in such a way to maximise the views. The house will enjoy a wrap around garden and approximately an additional 3 acres of grounds. The design of the property incorporates a number of practical and lifestyle elements, and it has been carefully thought through to maximise the benefits of the location.

The lower ground floor has been designed to provide a multipurpose gymnasium/games room, with kitchenette and shower room and this could equally provide separate internal accommodation for a live-in nanny/au-pair or relative. This floor also provides a boot room/utility room, services cupboard, and further storage rooms.

The upper ground floor is principally open plan in its layout and has been carefully designed to maximise the orientation of the property to take full advantage of the amazing views over the Cotswold countryside. This floor provides a spacious living room and an open plan kitchen/family room and has very much been designed for modern day family living.

The upper ground floor also has a guest bedroom with an ensuite, and double aspect wrap around veranda to make the most of the views. There are 3 further double bedrooms, all with ensuites and their own verandas.

The first floor has the master bedroom, which enjoys a triple aspect overlooking the roof garden, a green roof and the countryside beyond. There is a galleried landing and across from the bedroom is a study/garden room with a loggia.


The property is approached via a private driveway which provides access to the integral open bay car parking.

Gardens surround the residence with the intention of having garden areas with private terraces, roof gardens, and lawned areas. The residential extent of the curtilage extends to approx 0.85 acres with a paddock extending to 2.25 acres. The overall total plot extends to 3.83 acres.
