Situated between Reading and Oxford on the borders of Oxfordshire and Berkshire lies the picturesque village of Goring on Thames, nestling on the bank of the river opposite the village of Streatley in the ‘Goring Gap’, an historic crossing point of the Thames where the ancient Ridgeway Path comes down from the Berkshire Downlands to meet the river and then onto the Chiltern Hills continuing eventually on the Icknield Way into East Anglia.  The surrounding countryside is designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and the centres of both Goring and Streatley are now ‘Conservation Areas’, thus preserving the many notable period properties, some of which date back to the 15th and 16th centuries.

Goring on Thames offers a good range of amenities, including shops, banks, library, modern health centre, dentist, several traditional inns and restaurants, Boutique hotel, churches of several denominations and an excellent primary school with a wide range of private and state schools in the local area.  Importantly the village boasts a mainline railway station which provides excellent commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour.  There are also good road communications to the surrounding towns and both the M4 and M40 motorway networks.

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 luxury 4 star riverside hotel the Swan renowned for its fine cuisine and leisure and fitness facilities.

Elvendon Road is approached off the Wallingford Road  and leads out of the village in an Easterly direction, winding up through the scenic Elvendon Valley passing the Grade I Listed Elvendon Priory with private, Estate owned farmland and woodland on each side. The Primary School and a local Shop are in close proximity the former having easy off road access via Bourdillon Field and the main High Street and Station are also within easy reach. The tree lined road is known for its abundance of spring flowers especially bluebells and for the chestnut trees which extend along part of the road as it climbs up to Goring Heath and Woodcote. Many footpaths and bridle ways give access over this delightful area of unspoilt countryside.

A striking modern and contemporary residence privately situated in beautifully mature hedged & gated gardens & grounds, Woodlands House benefits from having been only just impressively extended and refurbished to an exacting and appealing standard, in a delightfully stylish and impressive fashion, affording both a contemporary and traditional flare which is balanced skilfully throughout the property, providing spacious 5 bedroomed accommodation which extends to approximately 2,832 sq ft in size, with exceptionally stylish fixtures and fittings evident throughout, and a relaxing ambience and outlook enjoyed.

To the ground floor 5 spacious and well thought out reception rooms are offered, including a stunning open plan kitchen / breakfast & family room drawing ones eyes through the bi-fold doors out to the predominantly south facing gardens. Whilst the first floor offers 5 bedrooms and a family bathroom, 2 of which have en-suite facilities, and to the master bedroom complimenting the en-suite bathroom is a large walk-in dressing room.

Careful planning and attention has been provided combining, more modern open plan living with that of a rather more traditional nature, in addition to embracing outside living, and as a consequence the property presents itself as a delightful and striking family residence.

Early viewing of Woodlands House is highly recommended to fully appreciate the wonderful opportunity that it affords. 

The property is approached off Elvendon Road via private timber gates flanked by mature hedging, with the views to the rear immediately enjoyed. The gates open through to a spacious gravelled driveway and forecourt featuring a central timber boarded raised bed with box hedging and a specimen tree planted. Ample parking is afforded, as is the space to build a detached garage / studio should one wish to do so.

A gravelled path leads around the side of the property to the flagged stone terrace which leads directly off the principal rear reception rooms. Enjoying a predominantly Southern aspect, with wide bi-fold doors opening out from the kitchen / breakfast & family room, the terrace is ideal for ‘Al Fresco’ dining and looking over the mature gardens and grounds and beyond to the woodland escarpment.

Laid mainly to lawn, the gardens offer an extensive array on mature hedging, trees, plants, and raised beds attractively built from timber sleepers, which further add to the attractive backdrop of the gardens, and usefully provide planting growing space for vegetables as well. To the further end of the garden currently there is a small chicken run and screened storage space as required.

Both private and delightfully attractive, the gardens and far reaching views from the grounds over the nearby woodland escarpment, must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

In all the gardens and grounds extend to just under 1/3rd of an acre.

Services: All mains services are connected to the property. Central heating and hot water from gas fired boiler.
