Property description

This beautifully presented Georgian family home was at one time the Toll House and was later extended by the Victorians and used as the gardener's cottage serving the Mapledurham Estate. Today it stands as a warm and inviting family home that has been thoughtfully refurbished throughout as well as extended. Making the most of its classic Georgian features, there are two formal reception rooms either side of the entrance hall that offer high ceilings, large latticed windows providing double aspect views to the front and gardens. As well, both reception rooms feature open fireplaces. Continuing along the entrance hall, there is a utility room and cloakroom to the left and the kitchen on the right. It is here that the current owners have sympathetically brought this house into the 21st century with a stylish, bespoke kitchen with slate floor and under floor heating, fitted units beneath granite work surfaces that is open plan to the vaulted, green oak dining and family area. This is without doubt the heart of this house and with its southerly aspect, means it is flooded by light, helped by the large windows and glazed doors that lead on to a raised decked area.
Four bedrooms on the first floor include the Master Bedroom with en-suite shower room and double aspect views, and similarly, the guest room but without an en-suite, both of which are located in the Georgian part of the house. The two remaining bedrooms are located at the rear in the Victorian section and a family bathroom serves the three bedrooms.

Situation
The property is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of Goring Heath where there are many walks and bridle paths to hand. Nearby Woodcote has a local shop and post office, however wider shopping and leisure facilities can be found at either Pangbourne, Henley on Thames or Reading. Those wishing to commute to London will find train services from Reading to Paddington approx. 25mins, (Crossrail expected 2019) or there are services from nearby Goring and Pangbourne. Motorway access for the M4 is at Junction 12, approx. 7 miles. The Oratory, Moulsford Prep, Cranford House for Girls, Bradfield and Pangbourne College are at hand.

Outside
The southerly gardens have been beautifully landscaped by the current owners and lie largely to the side of the property. There is direct access from the kitchen and dining area onto a raised deck that runs the entire length of the new extension. The gardens have been planted with attractive flower beds and there is a good expanse of newly laid lawn. From the garden there are steps down to a newly created parking area where an electric sliding solid gate has been installed.
