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 ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
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 and restaurants, together with a riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist and library. Importantly, a mainline railway station provides fast commuter services to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. The area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of state and private schooling.
The central village ‘Conservation Area’ has a wealth of architecturally interesting properties, many listed and dating from around the 16th Century. Historically, Goring-on-Thames 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 Swan at Streatley, a luxury 4 star riverside hotel with adjoining Coppa Club and leisure and fitness facilities.
Traditionally constructed, the property has red brick elevations under a pitched tiled roof, with wide glazing providing great natural light. The accommodation is traditionally arranged, extending to approximately 1,151 sq ft, with the sitting room enjoying a southerly aspect over the mature gardens, as do the principle and 2nd bedrooms. There is a large Loft extending the full length of the bungalow with good overall eaves height, which provides clear potential for further development if required, subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained. It is thought that from a first floor conversion, far-reaching views over towards the tree lined escarpment in Berkshire will be discovered.
A simply delightful family home, in a most charming location, early viewing is advised.
The property is situated at the top of a quiet, no-through lane, privately tucked away in its own extensive gardens and grounds, with a shared driveway off to one side, serving one additional property only.
The entrance drive opens into the property and leads up to the integral garage, with a turning bay off to one side. The integral garage has an electrically operated ‘up-and-over’ entrance door and fitted internal light and power.
The front area is completely enclosed with fenced boundaries for privacy and flanking the drive is a neat lawned garden, with planted borders, affording both an attractive approach, and outlook form the property itself.
The garden at the rear faces south and has been attractively laid out with a main central lawn surrounded by well stocked borders containing a variety of colourful plants and shrubs, with an array of trees interspersed. Off to one corner, there is a delightful timber boardwalk leading to a stone laid patio area for seating, looking back towards the rear of the property.
Wide glazing from the sitting room overlooks the gardens, with a French door opening out on to the patio terrace, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining.
Simply stunning, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.15 of an acre.
Services: All main services are connected to the property. Central heating and hot water from gas fired boiler.
