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 2010 Goring was awarded the prestigious “Oxfordshire Village of the Year” and also the coveted “South of England” title. Local amenities include a super primary school, 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 railway station providing fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. In addition to outstanding local secondary schooling such as Langtree School, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; The Oratory, Pangbourne College, Cranford House, The Manor, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.
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.
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.
Milldown Road is an established ‘no through’ residential road situated off the Wallingford Road, comprising mainly older properties dating from around the turn of the last Century, largely built using local bricks from the Woodcote kiln and with the attractive architectural detailing and features associated with the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
Originally dating from the turn of the last century, 9 Milldown Road is a semi-detached villa built-in the traditional vernacular style incorporating attractive architectural features associated with the late Victorian / early Edwardian era. Having appealing red brickwork with decorative detailing under a pitched clay tile roof.
