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).
Hill Place is set in extensive grounds just 20 minutes from the Hampshire coast, with elegant Georgian interiors and luxurious accommodation for up to 14 guests. There are 6 lovely bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, with the most beautiful sweeping staircase to make a grand entrance. The graceful reception rooms boast splendid original features, beautiful fireplaces and lovely views, and provide the perfect setting for anything from family holidays to weddings to corporate events.
