Nestled in the quaint hamlet of Hill Wootton, you’ll find majestic Hill Wootton House. Sitting proudly in two and a half acres of land, it occupies a prestigious position in this semi-rural idyll, and has its own tennis court, swimming pool, and paddock. Behind the attractive buttressed wall, with driveway parking for at least ten cars, this grand home, laden with character, is perfectly positioned for family life and entertaining. Uninterrupted countryside views stretch as far as the eye can see.
The scale of Hill Wootton House, which dates back to the 19th Century, cannot be underestimated. It is vast, yet beautifully homely, and offers a rare and wonderful opportunity to put your own design stamp on this unique abode, and add even further value. From the moment you step into the impressive porch and hallway, you get a real sense of what’s to come inside this substantial home.
We love the open plan kitchen and family room, with its cosy log burner and exposed brick feature wall, snug and dining area. It’s such a comfortable, sociable space. The bespoke kitchen, by Smallbone, is testament to British design and craftsmanship, with a large island at its heart; perfect for weekend brunches with all the family. There’s an impressive mosaic compass marble floor, and the wall panelling gives a nod to its original era. You’ll also find an AGA, granite worktops, pantry, full height cabinets and top-notch Miele integrated appliances.
Large bi-fold doors open into the courtyard with access to the former Coach House and original stable. For more formal dining, there’s a separate, large dining room, ideal for those special occasions and entertaining. The utility room is well-equipped to handle muddy boots and wet dogs, and there’s a handy cloakroom as well. Storage is in spades, and there’s even a dedicated wine cellar for any oenophiles.
True to its name, the lovely garden room opens up to the picturesque, south-facing garden. Three additional generous reception rooms, with period features and striking fireplaces, offer a myriad of possibilities for a games room, home cinema, hobby room, drawing room or even a gym. One room is currently used as a study, with French doors also opening into the garden, but the only limit here is your imagination.
Upstairs, the large landing space is so generous that it has the potential to be converted into another bedroom, if desired. The master suite is exceptionally capacious, and includes a dressing room, fitted furniture by Hammonds, and en suite with spa bath. There’s also another spacious bedroom with en suite, and two further large double bedrooms; all with gorgeous views. There is also a separate family bathroom.
In addition, a self-contained first-floor annexe, complete with its own kitchen and bathroom, offers endless possibilities for guest accommodation, a wonderful ‘teen crib’, or extended family living. The loft could also be converted into an amazing playroom, leisure cave or further bedroom. There’s space aplenty in this home, providing unrivalled flexibility, whatever your lifestyle.
Imagine luxuriating in your hot tub, situated on your own private balcony. At Hill Wootton House, it’s a reality. From this elevated vantage point, there’s no better place to watch the fireworks on New Years Eve or enjoy a little relaxation time as the sun sets in summer. The extensive, mature garden is bathed in sunlight, and there’s no finer setting for entertaining friends and family, as well as finding your own intimate spot for a little ‘me time’. Anyone for tennis? You have your own floodlit En-Tous-Cas tennis court in situ. Or maybe a dip in the swimming pool? There’s also a paddock set against a backdrop of open countryside.

Around Hill Wootton House
We love the village feel
Hill Wootton is a beautiful, quiet hamlet with just 28 homes, close to the village of Leek Wootton, with a lovely community feel. You’re just five minutes’ drive away from Kenilworth, Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa. Coventry is a 15-minute drive and you can be in London in an hour from the train station there, or in under 90 minutes from Warwick Parkway or Leamington Spa, where you can also reach Birmingham in around 30 minutes. In nearby Leek Wootton, you’ll find The Anchor with its super selection of food and drink, and The Warwickshire Golf & Country Club, with its superb leisure facilities, hotel, two 18-hole championship golf courses, a nine-hole short course, and driving range.
The contemporary Saxon Mill – a working mill until 1938 – is also close by in Warwick, and a scenic place to eat or enjoy drinks al fresco, with its waterfront setting next to the River Avon. When it comes to dog walks or simply keeping active, you’re spoilt for choice. Public footpaths are on your doorstep, leading to rolling countryside and woodlands. Kenilworth has a Waitrose, and there are some lovely independent shops and restaurants, including the Michelin-starred The Cross.
