Situated in the centre of this beautiful West Berkshire village, is the very handsome and unique Goldhill House. Exuding charm and with a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, having served as a much-loved family retreat for many years, the property, which is one of the jewels in the crown of East Garston, is just a short stroll to the local public house, village hall and picturesque countryside in an area famed for it rolling downs. The property has a plethora of character features such as: open fireplaces, sash windows and exposed timbers and has been dutifully cared for over the years, with the fabric of the main building having been kept-up exceptionally well. Internally the property has signs of age, but is perfectly functional. The property has been extended at least twice over its long life and this has added character while maintaining a practical flow. Goldhill House enjoys excellent entertaining space, with a very generous and social kitchen/breakfast room that has a relaxed farmhouse style. A formal dining room comfortably seats at least ten diners and there is a choice of reception rooms to suit the mood and the seasons. The 6/7 double bedrooms, some with dual aspect windows and 3 bathrooms, are located over the first and second floors.

A brick perimeter wall encloses the rear garden and gives plenty of privacy. The garden is a mass of colour, being well-stocked with various fragrant flowering shrubs, blossoms, and climbing roses. The main lawn, with a large tree that throws dappled shade, leads to an outdoor swimming pool and fenced tennis court (the surface is in need of attention) as well as a walled vegetable garden and fruit cage. As well as this, there is a most stunning detached cruck barn with plenty of possibilities. A gated driveway to the front leads to ample parking.

This highly desirable and picturesque village is ideally located being just a ten minute drive from J14 of the M4 and is one of very few villages in the area that does not have a main road running through it. The village nestles perfectly within the famed Lambourn Valley and is surrounded by stunning countryside. The river Lambourn, a chalk bed river, calmly meanders through the village. East Garston has a friendly and active social community, with numerous clubs, teams, events and activities that run throughout the year and to suit all ages. The village has a public house, The Queens Arms, which is a superb Gastro Pub/Hotel. There is also a social club and village hall. The market town of Hungerford, well-known for its antique trails, is just 7 miles away and offers a large supermarket and a further selection of shops and cafes, as well as a frequent train service to London, in about an hour. Newbury is approximately 11 miles away offering a wider range of shops and facilities and with various high street brands. Lambourn is a larger village situated 3 miles away with a sports centre and a range of shops including: supermarket, bakers, butcher and chemist. The Lambourn Valley is also served by an excellent doctors surgery.
