Goring Heath, lying a few miles east of Goring on Thames, is a scattered, rural Parish extending from the South Western edge of Woodcote, skirting round Whitchurch Hill and then South towards Mapledurham with the A329 Reading to Wallingford Road forming the perimeter along its eastern boundary. In the centre of the Parish are located the Alms houses built in a most pleasing aesthetic period architectural style, founded in 1726 by Henry Alnutt, a wealthy London barrister, and together with their historic Chapel are arranged around three sides of a cobbled courtyard. Whilst modernised in recent years, the Buildings have retained their authentic character appearance largely as they were in the 18th century, as has their unspoilt rural setting.

The nearby village of Pangbourne on Thames lies on a bend of the River where it meets the River Pang and is connected by an ancient Toll Bridge to the village of Whitchurch in Oxfordshire, which nestles under the Chilterns Escarpment. The surrounding countryside of the Berkshire Downlands and Chiltern Hills is designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

Pangbourne has an excellent range of local amenities, shops and facilities, including a supermarket, WH Smith, a Bank, Library, an impressive architect-designed Health Centre, Dentist, Opticians, together with Traditional Inns, Restaurants and Hotels including the newly refurbished The Elephant formerly The Copper Inn.  There is also a mainline station providing fast commuter services to Reading (8 minutes) and up to Paddington (25 minutes).

The villages of Goring on Thames and Woodcote are also only but a short drive, offering established shopping centres and a range of facilities including bank, modern health centres as well as restaurants, hotels and olde worlde inns. In addition there are mainline train services from Goring & Streatley station to both Oxford and London.

Dating from 1968, Copse House is an individual detached family home of approximately 1811 sq ft, offering potential for modernisation and possible enlargement subject to relevant planning consents.  The house is situated in a very secluded spot, located down a long private driveway sheltered by woodland and backing onto open farmland providing a simply delightful setting, with an open outlook from every window.

The rooms are of generous proportions, downstairs comprising of a spacious Entrance Hall, large triple-aspect Sitting Room with a working fire, Dining Room with patio doors to the garden, Kitchen, Utility Room, Cloakroom and Study. To the first floor is a large Master Bedroom with en-suite Bathroom, 3 further double Bedrooms, and a family Bathroom. All bedrooms benefit from built in wardrobes and rear rooms enjoy beautiful open views over the adjoining farmland. 

The house is initially approached over a shared driveway leading to a long private driveway for Copse House flanked by woodland providing shelter and seclusion and opening into a spacious gravelled forecourt providing parking and turning space for numerous vehicles, as well as a detached double garage.

The house is well set back in its plot of approximately 0.9 acres with large wooded areas and a working area of garden to the front of the house, offering a fantastic opportunity for further landscaping to suit one’s own requirements.
