The village of Woodcote, which lies just off the Reading to Oxford Road, is situated in an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ surrounded by the scenic countryside of the Chilterns, with extensive beech woodlands and undulating fields. The village is some 500’ (160 metres) above sea level and there are glorious far-reaching views from several parts of the village. Originally a small community based on farming and the countryside, Woodcote has grown substantially, especially during the 1960s and 1970s, is now a thriving village with a good range of local amenities including supermarket, nursery/garden centre, two public houses, modern health centre and excellent education facilities with two toddler playgroups, primary and secondary schools.
In addition to having well revered local state primary and secondary schooling, 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.
Near the centre of the village is the Parish Church, which was rebuilt in 1846 in a Norman style on the site of the original Norman structure, with a few traces of original walling still surviving. Woodcote House, an historic country mansion built in the 1730s, now forms part of the Oratory School, standing in extensive park like grounds east of the main village. A variety of local activities appealing to young and old are based in the Village Hall and nearby Community Centre and which are well publicised in the monthly village newspaper, the Woodcote Correspondent, circulated to all local residents.
Woodcote has readily accessible road network for Reading, Henley, Oxford and the M40 and M4 networks. For rail commuters there are mainline stations locally at Pangbourne and Goring on Thames, as well as Reading - all providing fast services up to London (Paddington).
N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading in 2020 which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.
Dating from the early 1970’s, 30 West Chiltern is a delightful family house, traditionally constructed having mellow old stock brick elevations under a steeply pitched tile roof with the bedrooms on the First Floor having vaulted ceilings providing an increased architectural effect adding to the feeling of space and proportion.
To the ground floor from the covered front porch, the front door opens into a Reception Hall with walk-in Cloaks cupboard, and Downstairs WC. To the opposite side is the Sitting Room with wide timber and glazed doors opening through to the Dining Room. The Kitchen then leads off into a most spacious Utility Room & Store / Workshop. From the Dining Room, wide glazed doors open out to the gardens. To the first floor, leading off a central landing are four good sized Bedrooms and the family Bathroom. With spacious accommodation presented in good order throughout and occupying an advantageous position enjoying a lovely rural aspect, early viewing is advised.
A communal walkway off the driveway to West Chiltern runs along the frontages to a number of homes, peeling off to spacious planted and lawned front gardens. 30 West Chiltern enjoys a sheltered frontage, with high clipped hedging running across the front of the lawned garden, having a slab laid path that leads up to the covered front porch and door.
Across the rear of the house is a paved patio terrace ideal for outside dining and entertaining leading directly off the dining room and kitchen utility room. The patio overlooks the level lawned garden, with fenced boundaries, and mature planting of shrubs and hedging adding both interest and an attractive private backdrop.
To the other end of the driveway which runs through West Chiltern, there is a communal forecourt, where the separate garage is situated.
