Tenure: Freehold

An historic Grade II listed house of great distinction with
exceptional views over its own land. It has excellent guest accommodation, together with a wonderful thatched barn that is perfect for entertaining.


Cantorist House is situated in an unusually quiet location on the edge of the attractive village of Childrey, at the foot of the Lambourn Downs. It is approximately 3 miles to the west of Wantage which provides facilities for day to day needs, including a Waitrose. The villages of the Cotswolds are within easy range and the near-by towns of Hungerford, Oxford, Newbury and Swindon provide more comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities. The house overlooks the Vale of the White Horse to the north and its own land.


Cantorist House, listed Grade II, is constructed of brick and stone under a tiled roof. Many of the original features have been retained, including extensive oak and walnut roof timbers and doors, leading lights and stone mullioned windows. The house is well arranged having an area that forms a separate and independent guest wing, with its own entrance and central heating system, which comprises hall, sitting room, cloakroom, bathroom and two bedrooms.

To the south east of the house, across the courtyard is The Tower House, with further guest accommodation comprising 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms of which one is en suite, sitting room and kitchen. To the east of the house lies a magnificent thatched barn which has been converted into a games room, also suitable for entertaining.

To the east of the house lies a magnificent timber clad thatched barn. Internally this has been converted into a full height games/family room with a large open fireplace. There is a further extensive and well maintained range of useful outbuildings including a brick and stone building, with tiled roof, divided into three rooms which include a large boot room to one end and fuel store housing two oil tanks in the other. There is a further timber clad thatched barn divided into a workshop/potting shed, garage and large laundry room.

Square Footage: 5,091 sq ft
Acreage: 75 Acres


From London take the M4 motorway leaving at Junction 14. Proceed north on the A338 towards Wantage and after about a third of a mile turn left signposted to Lambourn on the B4000. Continue along this road for about 4 miles and then turn right after the Hare pub signposted to Lambourn. Continue on the road to Lambourn and in the centre of the village, at the cross-roads, go straight over, signposted to Childrey and Wantage on the B4001. Follow this road for about 6.5 miles into Childrey. Go past the village pond, through the village and as the road bends to the left continue straight ahead into a 'no through road', signed to the Church. As the road forks, turn left and Cantorist House will be seen straight ahead of you before reaching the church.
