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.
South Point is believed to date back to the early 1950’s, being both attractive architecturally, and of typical design for more prestigious residences of this favoured era, having red brick elevations, under a pitched tile roof, staggered to the front with a wide covered porch on timber posts and brock plinths, and twin gables to the rear.
Ideally located in a most attractive mature elevated village setting adjoining parkland, with far reaching views afforded across to The Chilterns and Berkshire Downs on the opposing banks of The River Thames, the property is situated within a few minutes’ walk of the highly revered village primary school, central High Street shops, River Thames, and mainline railway station providing access to London Paddington in under the hour
Quite stunning, with great attention to detail being entirely evident throughout, the entire property has much in it to enthuse over, yielding a very real tasteful quality, wholly apparent on viewing. Spacious and well-appointed accommodation of a more traditional nature is skilfully combined with that of a more modern and contemporary air, with the property having more recently been extended and the subject of a total refurbishment, incorporating a superior specification with stylish fixtures and fittings, Solid Oak doors throughout and quality of appointment throughout rarely to be found.
The elegant and highly attractive arrangement of the accommodation takes full advantage of the far reaching views as well as those over its delightful private gardens and grounds, with doors opening out onto the glazed and railed terrace from the kitchen and dining room, perfect for ‘Al-Fresco’ dining.
Tastefully presented, early viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the wonderful opportunity afforded.
Privately fronting on to the Reading Road at the foot of Whitehill, the property has a timber gated entrance set flanked by mature tall hedging opening onto a long sweeping drive, further flanked by mature hedging and close boarded fencing.
Delightfully attractive the gardens and ground to the front of the property are most spacious, and afford an array of mature fruit trees and raised vegetable growing beds, with there being off to one corner a quality timber and glazed greenhouse.
At the foot of the drive there is ample turning and parking space, with the double garage and attached workshop being situated off to one side. A flag stone laid path leads up to the covered front porch and across one side of the property, with there being a further wide lawned access across the other side of the property.
The rear of the property benefits from a large flag stone laid terrace running attractively between the two protruding gables ends, with a glazed and stainless steel balcony having wrapped around colourful planting. Approached directly off the kitchen and dining room, with steps leading down to the garden and grounds, the stunning terrace is afforded the most wonderful far reaching views and is perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining.
The main rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature hedging flanking one side and close boarded fencing flanking the other. Interspersed with interesting pergolas and many specimen trees, the gardens are a delight, being both exceptionally attractive and spacious.
To the bottom of the garden there is a useful timber store shed, and a pedestrian timber gate giving access directly out to the adjoining parkland.
In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.363 of an acre.
