About this property

  • Boxhedge Cottage is a charming and beautifully presented period cottage set on the edge of the village of Eastbury in lovely gardens with the River Lambourn flowing through. Both the sitting room and dining room have fireplaces which are fitted with wood burners. The sitting room is well proportioned and has French doors opening out to the terrace and views to the South and West. The bespoke handmade kitchen has hand painted units and bamboo work surfaces. On the first floor is a comfortably sized principal bedroom with an underfloor heated walk-in shower room, a second double bedroom with en suite bathroom and a study which could be used as a third bedroom or dressing room as required. Both bedrooms have ample wardrobe and storage space.

    Boxhedge Cottage is hidden behind a dry stone wall and is approached from the lane to parking for two cars alongside the garage. Access to the property is through a gate and path which leads to the front door. The beautiful cottage garden is mainly laid to lawn and a mature Wisteria runs along the boundary wall. A pretty bridge crosses the river with fishing rights on either bank. There is a terrace on the southern elevation of the cottage which looks out over the gardens, river and outstanding farmland views beyond. To the east of the house is an insulated Summerhouse/Studio with electricity and heating, on the opposite bank is a smaller octagonal Summerhouse and to the west is a garden shed/store. Additional parking on the western side can be accessed through double gates.

There is something very special about this cottage. Packed with charm, with well proportioned rooms. The bourne that sits adjacent to the cottage provides the most idyllic outlook.
