In the panoramic Thames Valley between Reading and Oxford on the Berkshire/Oxfordshire borders lies the picturesque village of Goring on Thames nestling on the bank of the river opposite the village of Streatley. Situated at a historic crossing point of the Thames known as the ‘Goring Gap’ where the ancient Ridgeway Path comes down from the Berkshire Downlands to meet the river then continues up onto the Chilterns and thence along the Icknield Way to East Anglia.
The surrounding countryside is a designated A.O.N.B. and the centres of both Goring and Streatley are now ‘Conservation Areas’ thus preserving the many notable period properties some of which date from the 15th and 16th Centuries reflecting a rich architectural heritage.
Goring became increasingly prosperous following the arrival of Brunel’s railway and there are many examples of imposing Victorian and Edwardian houses.
Today Goring is a thriving community well serviced by a good range of shops and amenities including a Bank, health centre, dentist, library, traditional inns, restaurants, boutique Hotel, riverside Café, Village Hall from where many activities are run, and an excellent Primary School with a wide range of both State and Private Schools available in the local area.
Most importantly, the village has a mainline station with fast services up to London (Paddington) which service will be greatly improved with the arrival of the Cross-rail in the near future. Road links are also excellent to major surrounding towns and for the M4 and M40 motorway networks.
Gatehampton Road on the Southern edge of the village is a “no-through” road leading out into scenic countryside from where there are panoramic views of the surrounding Chilterns and Berkshire Downlands which face one another on either side of the Thames Valley as the River flows downstream towards Pangbourne.
This ‘non-estate’ road comprises mainly individual detached properties, some dating back to just after the First World War, having good-sized garden plots. There is easy access to the railway station, primary school and for the High Street shops and amenities in the centre of the village. Sheepcot Playing Field and the Tennis Courts are also located in the road and there are numerous country and riverside walks close at hand to enjoy the amazing scenery.
Chiltern End is a beautiful and impressive new family home of approximately 2551 sq ft, bespoke built to an exceptionally high standard and enjoying far reaching views to both the front and rear. An attractive and classic appearance with part brick and part ‘Webber’ rendered elevations under a traditional pitched clay tile roof with cottage style dormer windows adding to the characterful appeal.
Careful planning and attention to detail has been paid, with stylish and quality fixtures and fittings evident throughout including Oak panelled interior doors, ‘Velfac’ windows, 3 amp lighting points and wiring for Sky, BT & Cat 5. To the ground floor, the spacious Entrance Hall has engineered Oak flooring, leading to ground floor Shower Room, spacious Sitting Room with log-burning stove, Study and large open plan Kitchen/Dining/Family Room with granite work-surfaces and a host of in-built appliances including full length Bosch fridge and freezer, dishwasher, double oven incorporating a microwave, induction hob and Siemens “downdraft” extractor fan installed in the island. ‘Bi-parting’ sliding doors lead on to the rear Terrace. The separate Utility Room has a rear garden door and internal door to the Garage.
Contemporary glass & oak balustrades lead upstairs to a large galleried landing, where four double Bedrooms can be found, two of which are en-suite and all benefit from built-in wardrobe space. Both en-suites and a fantastic family Bathroom are fitted with backlit mist-resistant vanity mirrors, built in storage and shaving points. All bedrooms enjoy views either across to the Berkshire Downlands to the South, or over open fields and farmland to the East.
The property has a neat newly hedged frontage to Gatehampton Road, opening into a spacious gravelled forecourt and private driveway, with wide paved pathway to one side, and attractive and mature lawned front garden providing a pleasant approach, adjoining open fields to the side. The front forecourt area is gravelled, providing parking and turning space, and a further brick pavior hardstanding leads to the integral garage with electric roller door.
The house itself sits well back in the landscaped gardens and grounds and overlooks open fields to the front and side. Paved access around the side of the house leads to the rear garden, with a fantastic large paved terrace spanning the rear of the house leading off the Kitchen/Dining Room, providing the perfect spot for ‘al-fresco’ dining, taking full advantage of the sunny South-Westerly aspect and views across to the Berkshire Downlands. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with rustic post and rail fenced boundaries, providing an opportunity for the keen gardener to plan and design their own individual layout.
