The ancient market town of Wallingford owes its importance largely to its position being approximately mid-way between Oxford and Reading on the Icknield Way, at a natural fording point of the River Thames and therefore on the direct ‘East to West’ route for travellers from as far back as the bronze age linking East Anglia with the West Country and Wales.
Kings and Queens through the ages have been associated with Wallingford and its castle. The Danish King Sweyn burnt it, Edward the Confessor rebuilt it, William the Conqueror marched his army over the ford, Queen Mathilda fled over the frozen river to sanctuary in 1142, Henry II granted its charter in 1155, Henry VIII spent summers there and Queen Elizabeth I rebuilt the old medieval bridge with stones from the priory her father had destroyed. During the Civil Wars, the town supported the Royalists and as a result Cromwell destroyed the castle. In the 18th Century Judge Sir William Blackstone who lived in the town wrote the first major commentary on the laws of England, which formed the inspiration for the American Constitution.
A terrible fire destroyed most of the medieval architecture in the town but there are numerous period buildings of great merit dating from the 16th century onwards, notably the Town Hall built in 1670, the 16th century George Hotel (an old coaching inn) and the Corn Exchange, of Italianate design, now a Theatre and Cinema.
The town now boasts a population of just over 6,000 and is a bustling market town and popular riverside touring centre with a wide range of interesting Artisan shops together with a Waitrose Supermarket, restaurants and Cafes. Other facilities include a Museum and a Cottage Hospital.
Situated in an excellent central location, a beautiful and spacious period first floor apartment, being the upper half of an impressive Georgian house, beautifully presented throughout, affording light and airy accommodation of approximately 1143 sq ft, with high ceilings and excellent natural light from large sash windows.
The front door on the ground floor leads into an Entrance Hall with oak flooring, and staircase. On the first floor is an excellent landing space, with deep double storage cupboard. To the front is the magnificent double aspect Sitting Room with open fireplace, Kitchen/Breakfast Room with bespoke fitted solid wood kitchen, granite work-surfaces, and integrated appliances. Oak flooring runs throughout the living space. Also leading off the central landing is the Master Bedroom with exposed brickwork and en-suite Shower Room, a second Double Bedroom and Family Bathroom.
Approached over Mill Lane is a brick paved parking area serving 4 properties. The allocated parking space for 1B is first on the right as you come in from the lane. The communal areas are enclosed by walled or hedged boundaries, offering a good degree of privacy.
Beyond the parking area is a communal paved courtyard and pathway leading towards the entrance to the apartment, with neat and attractive planted borders, and a small seating area. To one corner is a communal brick storage shed. The apartment is independently accessed, with a trellis adorned with honeysuckle & roses providing privacy at the front door.
