Welcome to Hill Place


This elegant Georgian villa is set in a truly idyllic location one mile from the village of Swanmore in the Meon Valley, Hampshire and just 20 minutes’ drive to the coast. The house was constructed in 1791 by Richard Goodlad with the money he made from the East India Company, and it is thought the property was designed in conjunction with the great architect Sir John Soane. The estate was passed down through several generations until the current owners inherited the property in 2009 and embarked on an extensive renovation programme (as documented by Channel 4’s Country House Rescue).

Elysian's Review

Hill Place is such a welcoming and homely property, despite the grandeur of the rooms it really feels like a warm hug when you step through the door. The house is beautifully furnished but never stuffy or pretentious, with a charming country kitchen and great amenities including a games room and beautiful grounds. The luxurious bedrooms are individually designed, and the magnificent reception rooms are equally suited to relaxing with family or hosting a celebrations, and the sweeping staircase is just crying out for beautiful brides to make their entrance.
