The much prized village of Goring on Thames occupies a stunning location in the scenic Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills and the Berkshire Downlands as it flows from Oxford down to Reading, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap’ and designated an ‘A.O.N.B.’ In 2009 Goring was awarded the prestigious ‘Oxfordshire village of the Year’ and also the coveted best in ‘South of England’ title.
This stretch of the River the longest between locks, is regarded as one of the most beautiful and is forever associated with Kenneth Graham’s immortal book “Wind in the Willows” as well as Jerome K Jerome’s book “Three Men in a Boat” which actually mentions Streatley in its narrative.
The village boasts an excellent range of shops and facilities together with Olde Worlde pubs, a highly regarded Bistro/Café, choice of restaurants, a Bank, Boutique hotel, Doctors and Dental surgeries and importantly a mainline station offering fast services up to London (Paddington). There is also easy access for the major local towns, including Oxford, Reading and Newbury, the M4 and M40 motorways, and for Heathrow.
Recognised as a thriving community there are a wide range of clubs, societies and special interest groups to suit most people.
There is a highly rated Primary school and in the local area are a first class choice of both state and private schools with ‘bus collections.
The central part of Goring is a ‘Conservation Area’ and has a wealth of interesting period properties many Listed being of significant architectural and historical interest.
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.
The Birches is a development of ‘mews’ style properties built in the 1970’s arranged in staggered terraces around private lightly timbered greens, situated between Cleeve Road and Thames Road just a short distance from the central village High Street and river.
15 The Birches enjoys a pleasant aspect overlooking a private Green fringed by mature Silver Birch trees with a southerly rear aspect over its private garden, with superb views to the Berkshire Downs and National Trust woodland beyond.
The property occupies an end but one position in a staggered terrace of seven. The house has a larger living area than others in the close, having been newly extended and refurbished, and offers superb open-plan living accommodation with bi-folding doors across the rear leading onto the South facing garden.
