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 ‘AONB’
In 2009 Goring was awarded the prestigious “Oxfordshire Village of the Year” and also the coveted “South of England”title. Local amenities include an excellent range of interesting shops, a bank, restaurants and riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist, library, and importantly a mainline station providing fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. There is also excellent state and private schooling in the surrounding area.
The central village ‘Conservation Area’ has a wealth of architecturally interesting properties, many listed and dating from around the 16th Century. Historically Goring traces back to Saxon times.

Icknield Road is a highly regarded residential road which rises up out of the village onto the beautiful Chilterns countryside where the panoramic views extend across the whole Thames Valley.

Ainsley Down

Originally built in 1966, Ainsley Down over the past 18 months has been totally transformed into a spectacular new contemporary style home. The reconstruction involved a virtually complete new build and was carried out to exacting standards with the workmanship skills much in evidence particularly in the brickwork and roofing.
Externally the property retains a traditional rustic appearance with the artistic gabling of the clay tile roof adding considerably to its visual impact.
Internally the arrangement and style of the accommodation successfully flows in a modern contemporary vein with much creativity in the appointment of the different rooms.

Among the many notable features are the following:

Sophisticated gas underfloor central heating with individual room thermostatic controls

Professionally designed, bespoke fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room with Italian Marinache granite work surfaces, fitted units in Farrow & Ball colour scheme, 5 oven Aga and host of integrated equipment.
