The Property
Chantry Cottage is a beautifully presented house believed to have been built circa 1940, refurbished and extended to create a very comfortable family home with well-laid out and flexible accommodation. Of particular note is the open plan John Lewis of Hungerford kitchen, leading into a conservatory which offers a substantial entertaining space opening onto the terrace and gardens. The accommodation is both light and airy throughout
and upstairs is a master bedroom with adjacent shower room and dressing room/bedroom 5. Whilst connected, a 2nd staircase leads to three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The Location
Chantry Cottage is situated in an elevated position in the village of East Garston, a delightfully picturesque village on the River Lambourn and in the Lambourn Valley, an area famous for its
racehorse training, gallops and beautiful countryside. The village is highly sought-after as it is located off the main road and therefore avoids any through-traffic. There is a pub/restaurant in the village and a church with a primary school in nearby Great Shefford. Hungerford, Newbury, Marlborough and Wantage all offer a wide selection of shops and leisure facilities.

Communications are excellent by road via the M4 and by rail via Hungerford (Paddington about 60 minutes).

• Newbury 10 miles
• Wantage 10 miles

(Distances and times approximate)

The Garden
A beautifully designed and landscaped garden lies to the rear of the property, incorporating lawned areas, well stocked flower borders, shrubs and trees. Leading from the kitchen is an attractive terrace overlooking the garden and within the grounds are numerous well positioned seating areas. To the rear of the garden, steps lead to
another fenced area of lawn, complete with raised beds. The property is approached to the front via a gravel drive which leads to a parking and turning area, access to the integral garage and front lawn.

From M4 J14 take the A338 north and on reaching
Great Shefford and The Swan pub on your right, fork left signed to East Garston and Lambourn. As you enter the village of East Garston turn right just before the Queens Arms. Proceed along the lane and over the small bridge and bear round to the left. Continue for a short distance and Chantry Cottage will be found on your right hand side.
