A delightful period cottage with lots of potential in a village setting with a garage and garden

Fiddlers Well is an attractive, grade II listed period cottage, full of original features, and now in need of some updating. The property is full of character and there are many original features such as timber beams and fireplaces. On the ground floor, the entrance hall opens into a comfortable sitting room, with a very attractive inglenook fireplace, and this leads through to the dining room which has a fireplace with woodburning stove. Off the dining room is the galley kitchen which can also be accesed by the back door. The staircase leads up to two double bedrooms, a third bedroom/study and a family bathroom.


The garden lies mainly to the side of the house, accessed through a gateway which leads to a beautiful and secluded rose garden. The lawn is edged with flower borders and mature yew hedges, with rose beds in the centre. There are three useful garden stores adjoining the house. The property is approached off the village lane through a wooden 5-bar gate across a gravel driveway. There is a detached brick and timber garage with a large loft space above. Fiddlers Well is part of an old farmyard and shares the driveway with the neighbouring property.


Eastbury is a small and pretty village set amidst the stunning countryside of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a great village community with a popular pub and a village hall, while everyday amenities, including two village shops, a post office, doctor’s surgery and a chemist can be found in Lambourn, just over a mile away. The market town of Newbury, with its excellent choice of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities is 10 miles away. There are a number of primary schools within the local area, including at Lambourn, Ramsbury and Shefford, and there is a wide choice of secondary and independent schools in the area, including Pinewood, Elstree, Horris Hill, Marlborough College and Downe House. The area is well connected for transport, with easy access to the M4 and a mainline station in Hungerford offering direct services to London Paddington taking approximately 60 minutes.
