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.
Milldown Lodge is believed to date from around the late 1800’s, and is of typical late Victorian design, having red brick elevations, noted as being handmade from the then local kiln works at Woodcote, under a pitched tile roof, and is located in a most attractive mature elevated village setting 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 traditional Victorian accommodation is skilfully combined with that of a more modern and contemporary air, with the property having recently been the subject of a total refurbishment, incorporating a superior specification with stylish fixtures and fittings and quality of appointment throughout rarely to be found.
The elegant and highly attractive arrangement of the accommodation takes full advantage of the private views over the beautifully landscaped gardens and Chiltern escarpment beyond, with wide glazed bi-fold door opening out onto the timber decked terrace from the kitchen / dining & family room, perfect for ‘Al-Fresco’ dining.
Tastefully presented, early viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the meticulous attention to detail given to the architectural design and all the works undertaken.
The property is located at the further end of this quiet cul-de-sac road off to the left-hand side. Across the frontage is a tall box hedge with a central wooden pedestrian gate opening on to a paved path pleasantly flanked by herbaceous planted borders and bushes, with a bouquet of planted flowers surrounding the front lawn. The tall box hedge continues down the Eastern boundary giving way to the rear garden via a tall timber pedestrian gate.
A wide wooden five bar gate opens onto the driveway and forecourt, leading down to the garage, which has an ‘up and over’ entrance door, fitted light, water, and power, whilst to the rear of the garage, a pedestrian door opens close to the utility room door at the side of the property, being usefully located.
The rear of the property benefits from a large timber decked terrace running along the entire back elevation of the property, approached directly off the kitchen / dining & family room. Well illuminated by way of discreet tungsten and led lighting, the terrace leads down wide timber sleepers to the neatly laid lawn, flanked extensively with well planted mature herbaceous boarders and mature hedging, with an array of colourful shrubs interspersed throughout.
The bottom of the garden is further privately screened with mature hedging, and has been attractively laid to a children’s playing area off to one side, whilst to the other a circular flag stone terrace takes advantage of the mature vista back towards the property.
In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 1/5 of an acre.
Delightfully attractive, the gardens and far reaching views from the grounds must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
