The picturesque village of Streatley on Thames lies in a valley on the Berkshire side of the river between Reading and Oxford, facing Goring on the Oxfordshire side. The surrounding countryside is designated an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. Historically the location of the two villages is at a natural crossing point of the river, set between the Berkshire Downs and Chiltern Hills, known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ where the ancient Ridgeway path comes down to meet the river after its long journey across the Berkshire Downlands before continuing up onto the Chiltern Hills and the Icknield Way. The interesting High Street, which forms the central part of the village running down to the river and the bridge over to Goring, is now a ‘Conservation Area’ with a wealth of period properties many of considerable architectural merit including a thatched cottage, a beautiful William and Mary house and an Elizabethan Farmhouse, supposedly haunted by a lady in white.
In the village there is a parish church with Norman origins, a luxury riverside four star hotel, The Swan, which also offers a leisure and fitness club and at the top of the High Street is the Bull Inn being an old coaching inn from the era when the Royal Mail stopped en route from London to Oxford. There is also a prestigious Golf Club, established over one hundred years ago, set amidst beautiful rolling countryside, a pre-school and a highly regarded Church of England primary school. The local area is extremely well catered for by private and state schools and is in the catchment area for the much acclaimed Downs secondary school in Compton.
Across the river, the larger village of Goring on Thames offers a wide range of amenities and facilities including shops, a bank, modern health centre, traditional inns, a hotel, library, dentist and importantly a main line railway station providing excellent commuter services to Oxford, Reading and up to London (Paddington) in under the hour.
Behind Streatley the ground rises steeply where the Berkshire Downlands meet the wide Thames Valley and from the top there are panoramic views far into Oxfordshire. The woodland and hills surrounding Streatley have been acquired in recent years by the National Trust and the extensive bridleways and footpaths are now open to the public.
Woodfield Cottages lie at the foot of Streatley Hill and comprise two pairs of semi-detached properties either side of a staggered terrace of four built by Thomas Homes in 2003 in a sympathetic ‘Cottage’ style blending in with the local architectural heritage. Each of the cottages has appealing multi stock brick elevations with decorative banding and solider courses above windows under a steeply pitched clay tile roof having ornamental ridge tiles and scalloped barge boards in period manner.
5 Woodfield Cottages is part of a stepped terrace of 4 and occupies a good position with a sheltered south facing rear garden, enjoying a pleasant street scene with front and rear views of National Trust woodland and hillsides.
Internally the accommodation is well arranged and stylishly appointed with many features including solid panelled doors with chrome furniture matching the light and power sockets, quality painted wooden sealed unit windows with security locks, wooden ‘Shaker’ style fitted kitchen with ceramic tiled floor, impressive fireplace in the south facing lounge, gas central heating with radiators having independent thermostatic controls and white suites to the main bathroom, en suite shower room and cloakroom. Additionally there is coving to the ceilings and inset lighting in strategic areas.
Modern and contemporary in appearance throughout the property displays high quality stylish fixtures and fittings that will be evident upon viewing.
Wrought iron railings and a pedestrian gate open onto a paved footpath leading up to the front door.
The garden at the rear of the property enjoys a sheltered and private southerly aspect, where immediately adjoining the house is a paved terrace perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining. Beyond the paved terrace the main rear garden is conveniently laid to lawn whilst attractively flanked by mature planted beds and borders.
A wide splayed access off the Aldworth Road leads into the garaging and parking area for Woodfield Cottages. Initially there are designated parking bays on each side and then to the rear are located two blocks of four car ports built in matching architectural style with brick elevations under pitched clay tile roofs with decorative ridge tiling.
