Cane End is a small rural Hamlet located just in Oxfordshire on the Southern edge of the Chilterns Hills and within easy reach of central Reading with its vastly enlarged Station complex providing fast commuter services directly up to London (Paddington) and with the impending arrival of the new Cross-rail Services enabling direct access to all the major destinations in London itself making travelling easier and quicker.

Additionally Oxford, Wallingford and Henley on Thames are all within easy driving distance. Similarly the large village of Sonning Common and Caversham a suburb of Reading are both in close proximity and offer good shopping facilities and amenities.

The surrounding rural area is particularly scenic and designated an A.O.N.B.

Property description

The Cottage occupies a delightfully mature and private position in a secluded plot of over 1.7 acres, with a tranquil backcloth of ancient woodland.

The existing cottage is believed to date originally from 1810, having been extended in the 1950’s to provide spacious and flexibly arranged 3 bedroom accommodation, with a wealth of character throughout. Detached from the house, the garage building has been insulated and services installed for use as a studio.

Full planning permission is granted for a substantial new traditional family home of approximately 4,751 sq ft arranged over three floors, affording generous open plan and well apportioned living in a stylish and contemporary design.

Full plans pertaining to the planning permission can be viewed online with South Oxfordshire District Council using the reference P16/S2503/ful.


Approached over a quiet lane, a Laurel hedged frontage provides good privacy, with an opening into the private driveway and forecourt, leading up to the garage building and on to the cottage itself which stands well back in the generous plot. The detached garage building is insulated for use as a studio, has fitted light and power, and has potential to be converted to a temporary living space if required.

Lawned gardens surround the existing cottage and flank the driveway, with a large established pond to the rear. Beyond the lawns the garden gives way to ancient woodland, providing protection and giving a beautiful and peaceful outlook and a wonderfully secluded feeling. In all the plot amounts to just over 1.7 acres, with excellent potential for the development of a larger home.
