The Property

A detached former Lock Keepers Cottage occupying a wonderful rural location beside the Kennet and Avon Canal and set within the beautiful Freemans Marsh Nature Reserve. The Cottage has immense charm but does require significant renovation. Standing beside Cobblers Lock (Lock no. 72) this very special home has far reaching views along the canal in both directions and the surrounding Freemans Marsh covers 90 Acres of protected wildlife habitat that straddles the chalk stream Rivers Dun and Kennet. Freemans Marsh is carefully managed by Hungerford Town & Manor and potential purchasers should take note that there is NO vehicular access to Lock House. With this in mind, potential buyers should be fully aware that access to the house on foot only. The current owners have begun gradually restoring the Cottage in recent years and have also acquired a mature garden behind the Cottage. This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to purchase for those who are sympathetic to the heritage of the Kennet and Avon canal and the glorious surrounding countryside. The house itself currently includes a Sitting room, Dining room, Kitchen and shower room on the ground floor with a staircase rising to three interlinked Bedrooms on the first floor. Beneath the house there is a useful Utility room/Cellar area. All viewings are strictly by appointment only so please telephone or email our offices to arrange or for further information.


The Front Garden area runs alongside the lock and west alongside the canal for approximately 75. The mature rear garden sits lower down and measures approximately 75 x 50 interspersed with mature trees and shrubs.
