Goring on Thames lies serenely in the beautiful Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire and the Berkshire Downlands opposite above the village of Streatley, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ and designated an ‘aonb’.
In 2010 Goring was awarded the prestigious “Oxfordshire Village of the Year” and also the coveted “South of England” title. Local amenities include a super primary school, an excellent range of interesting shops, a bank, restaurants and riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist, library, and importantly a mainline railway station providing fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. In addition to outstanding local secondary schooling such as Langtree School, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; The Oratory, Pangbourne College, Cranford House, The Manor, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.
The central village ‘Conservation Area’ has a wealth of architecturally interesting properties, many listed and dating from around the 16th Century. Historically Goring traces back to Saxon times.
Streatley on Thames, on the Berkshire side of the river, is another picturesque village surrounded by hills and woodlands now mainly owned by the National Trust. Fronting onto the river by the bridge crossing over to Goring is the luxury 4 star riverside hotel the Swan renowned for its fine cuisine and leisure and fitness facilities.
Pennypiece is a cul-de-sac situated off Cleeve Road and within the favoured central part of the village, within easy walking distance of the High Street shops and amenities. The road comprises mainly detached houses with a mixture of terraced and semidetached houses, all traditionally constructed incorporating a ‘cottage style’ to their design. Built in the late 1960s by Loverock, a well-respected and highly successful locally based development company, the houses are thoughtfully planned and laid out and are attractively arranged and sited to take advantage of the natural, gently sloping surroundings being situated at the end of Cleeve Road, close to Cleeve Mill.
Originally dating from the 1970’s, 28 Pennypiece is an attractive and traditionally designed detached family home. The accommodation is spacious and practically arranged. On the ground floor is a central Reception Hall leading to a large Cloakroom, double aspect Sitting Room with fireplace and French doors to the garden, a Dining Room and Kitchen with side entrance. Upstairs is the Master Bedroom with En-Suite Bathroom, three further Bedrooms and a contemporary Shower Room. Set in attractive grounds to front and rear, the house offers a lovely family home as it is, with further potential to adapt and extend subject to relevant permissions.
The house stands well back in its plot, with a spacious open plan lawned garden in front. The entrance drive is walled on one side and is gated part way along, running beyond the side of the house to a forecourt and detached double garage at the rear. The principle garden is lawned, with a tall Leylandii hedge along the rear boundary. Leading directly off the house is a large patio terrace overlooking the gardens, and slightly separated by a low wall with an opening onto the lawn.
