Dating back to 1809, The Old Farm House is a striking period property set prominently within the village. The house itself has been immaculately renovated and presented with great attention to detail. The rooms are light and airy with large sash windows, and the accommodation is well proportioned and arranged over three floors, lending itself to flexible living. There is a superb Smallbone kitchen with granite work surfaces, smart fitted units and an Aga. This connects through the breakfast room to the stunning conservatory, ideal for relaxing or entertaining, and opening onto a private terrace. There is a sitting room with working fireplace which also adjoins the conservatory, allowing these informal reception spaces to flow seamlessly. The formal drawing and dining rooms lie to the front of the house, each with working fireplaces, large sash windows and beautiful cornicing.

To the first floor, the generous master bedroom takes precedence with a wonderful dressing room and bathroom, all overlooking the front gardens. The large guest suite overlooks the private rear garden and comprises a double bedroom, en-suite bathroom and a connecting sitting room/bedroom. A separate staircase leads to the second floor which comprises four further bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom.

" The Old Farm House is situated down a small road in the heart of Goring on Thames. The property enjoys an enviable location, close to the shops and amenities of Goring, but set back from the main High Street.

" Goring is well placed to take advantage of the full range of schooling for all ages. There are excellent private and state schools in the vicinity, as well as good transportation to fantastic schooling further afield. The village itself has a number of shops and amenities, including the well regarded Miller of Mansfield pub, wonderful Pierrponts café, and The Swan hotel and Venus Spa.

" There is a local railway station in the Village (Paddington under the hour) and a mainline station at Reading (Paddington approx. 27 mins). The M4 (J12) is about 10 miles away and provides direct access to the West Country, London and its airports.

The house is approached through a brick pillared entrance with wrought iron electric gates, leading over a gravel driveway to the period barn with automatic doors for garaging. There are also stables and store rooms for plenty or storage. The gardens surround the property with the front garden lying to one side of the house with beautiful herbaceous borders and access to the boot room and kitchen. Around to the rear of the house lies the heated swimming pool and pool house with paved surround and a low level brick and flint wall looking out to the vast vegetable gardens and greenhouse, all immaculately designed and maintained. To the westerly side of the house is a second secluded lawn with mature trees and hedging to the far boundary for a great degree of privacy and seclusion. The beautiful conservatory opens onto a paved terrace, creating a charming, intimate courtyard with steps down to the west lawn to one side, and an archway within the old brick wall leading into the vegetable garden. The front door can be accessed directly from Station Road, via an electric pedestrian gate leading to the classic Georgian frontage.
