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 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.
In addition to having well revered and outstanding local state primary and secondary schooling, including a primary school within Goring-on-Thames itself, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; Cranford House School, The Oratory Preparatory School, Moulsford Preparatory School, St Andrews Preparatory School, The Oratory School, Pangbourne College, Brockhurst & Marlston House, Downe House, Rupert House School, Shiplake College, The Abbey School, Bradfield College, The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon School, Abingdon Preparatory School, Radley College, and St Helen & St Katharine.
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.
Icknield Road lies on the elevated North Eastern fringe of the village eventually climbing up onto the surrounding Chilterns countryside.
Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) services have commenced from Reading, with the full service scheduled to commence in 2021, which together with the completed electrification of the line has significantly improved travelling times to East and West destinations.
Situated in a peaceful and idyllic location within this popular Thames-side village, Icknield Lodge, is a simply striking newly built residence with a wholly relaxing yet engaging ambience backing onto farmland, showcasing proudly the architectural attributes of the property, both internally and externally. Built to an exceptionally high standard, predominantly of traditional design with appealing brick and stone elevations, a more striking contemporary note is also evident, most impressive and complimentary. Affording particularly generous accommodation of approximately 3,939 sq ft internally, plus a detached garage and car port, an inspired layout can be found, with open plan contemporary living combined impressively with that of a rather more traditional air.
To the ground floor, opening through from the ‘veranda’ style covered porch, all principle reception rooms lead off a large central galleried reception hall with cloaks cupboard, including the drawing room with fireplace & log burner and bi-fold doors, sitting room, study, cloakroom, and the kitchen / dining room & family room with dual bi-fold doors and separate utility room. All three sets of wide glazed bi-fold doors open up on three sides to the wrap around stone laid terrace and gardens, wonderfully designed for both a stunning vista and inside outside living.
A wide turning oak and glazed staircase leads up to the first floor and spacious galleried landing, off which is a walk-in airing cupboard, the luxurious master bedroom suite with bathroom & dressing room, 1 further bedroom suite with shower room, 2 bedrooms, and a family bathroom. A 2nd timber and glazed staircase winds up to the 2nd floor galleried landing, which leads to a 3rd bedroom suite with bathroom, and a grand studio / 6th bedroom.
A simply wonderful opportunity afforded, affording stylish and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout, with a most impressive design to be enjoyed, Icknield Lodge is an exquisite family home in a most charming and convenient location, with early viewing being highly recommended.
Privately approached off Icknield Road, over granite set stones, the property sits quietly behind attractive close boarded fencing, with a wide electrically operated wrought iron gate affording vehicular access on to the spacious gravelled driveway. The driveway spans the entire width of the property, flanked by mature trees, with a detached garage and car port off to one side, and a lawned garden off to the other side.
Deep timber sleepers form a pathway on to the stone laid front terrace, which opens up on to the covered ‘veranda’ style front porch at the entrance to the property itself. The stone laid terrace wraps its way around the southern side of the property, widening across the entire width of the house at the rear, affording a most spacious terrace, which links up between the main rear reception rooms, from the three sets of wide glazed bi-fold doors, creating a modern inside outside living experience, and perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining.
Extensive mature lawned gardens with sheltered boundaries flanked by mature trees embody a most relaxing ambience, with a wooded copse to the end of the garden, which adjoins farmland, affording a most attractive vista to be enjoyed.
Delightfully attractive, the gardens & grounds must be viewed to be fully appreciated and in total extend into approximately 0.85 of an acre.
