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 good road communications with easy access 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).
Wood Green is a small development of houses built in the traditional style in 1978, advantageously situated in the centre of the village close to shops and amenities and benefiting from a private, traffic free, non-estate setting ideally suited for children. The houses differ in size and are arranged around two sides overlooking their own private hedged and lightly timbered green.
The Freehold of the green is owned by a private company comprising all the property owners in Wood Green who each hold equal shares and contribute a yearly sum for the maintenance of the grass, trees and hedges. This sum varies between £90.00 to £100.00 per annum but is assessed annually.
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.
Set back privately nestling behind mature country hedging, 28 Wood Green has appealing brick elevations with decorative brick banding under a pitched clay tile roof with a tiled front porch to the front elevation, being located in a most attractive mature & village setting within a few minutes’ walk of the highly-revered village primary and secondary school, shops and pubs, and just a short drive to a mainline railway station in Goring-on-Thames providing access to London Paddington in under the hour.
Spacious and well-appointed traditional 2 bedroomed accommodation is skilfully combined with that of a more modern and contemporary air, with the property having more recently been the subject of thorough refurbishment, incorporating a delightful specification, with stylish fixtures and fittings and quality of appointment throughout. The attractive arrangement of the accommodation takes full advantage of the landscaped gardens, with doors opening out onto the rear garden from the sitting room, perfect for ‘Al-Fresco’ dining.
Quite charming, with great attention to detail being entirely evident throughout, the entire property has much in it to enthuse over, yielding a tasteful quality, wholly apparent on viewing.
Approached initially through the spacious and mature communal park-like gardens, the property sits back afforded great privacy, with mature beech hedging to the front boundary. A small pathway leads up to the front covered porch with a stone garden off to one side and the neighbouring lawned garden off to the other, providing for an attractive approach.
The rear garden has been well laid out with timber decked terrace across the width of the house, having French double doors opening out, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining, and then enjoying larger mainly lawned gardens which run down to a timber shed at the end of the garden.
The separate garage is situated in an adjacent private block, and has a fitted up and over door with allocated parking space adjoining.
Delightfully attractive, the gardens and grounds must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
Services: All mains services are connected. Central heating and hot water from gas fired boiler located in the upstairs cupboard.
