The picturesque village of Streatley on Thames lies in a scenic valley on the Berkshire side of the River Thames almost equidistant between Wallingford and Pangbourne, and directly opposite the village of Goring in Oxfordshire. The two villages face each other on either side of the River at a point known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap' set between the Berkshire Downlands and the Chiltern Hills, and designated an AONB.
The County town of Reading together with Oxford, Newbury and the M4 are all easily accessible, and the mainline station in Goring provides excellent commuter services up to London (Paddington and Waterloo). Goring being the larger village has a wide range of shops and amenities as well as Restaurants, Riverside Café, Olde Worlde Inns, Bank, Doctors, Dentist, and 2 Hotels.
Rectory Road lies on the north west fringe of Streatley and leads out of the village to the Golf Course and ends in a further ¾ mile at Warren Farm. From here the historic ridgeway path begins its journey up and over the Berkshire Downlands, having crossed the Thames at Goring from the Chilterns. The road itself, which lies on a raised escarpment overlooking the Downs, has only a cluster of houses mainly individual and many dating from around the turn of the last century.
North Thurle is a self-contained attached property occupying a quiet and secluded position comprising part of an exclusive Edwardian Estate, surrounded by open countryside, and just minutes from the historic Ridgeway path, beautiful countryside walks & rides.
The property has been sympathetically refurbished throughout to an exacting standard, presented beautifully and encompassing a modern and contemporary flare whilst embracing and retaining the character of the building. Further works are currently being undertaken to provide an additional Reception Room, private Garden and second allocated Parking Space. Expected to complete November 2017.
Approached over a private shared driveway is a gravelled parking space, and small lawned garden with hedged border for privacy. Part way down the driveway will be a further allocated parking space. On the ground floor, the front door leads into the Kitchen area which is of excellent quality and fitted with a host of integrated appliances including fridge, freezer, dishwasher, double electric oven and gas hob. Beyond the kitchen is an open-plan Dining Room with oak flooring and contemporary remote controlled fire. The Dining Room opens into the new Sitting Room space. The staircase leads up to the light and airy landing, off which are the vaulted Master Bedroom, second Double bedroom, a Bathroom with separate shower and a Utility Cupboard housing a washer-dryer and the wall mounted boiler.
Early viewing is advised in order to fully appreciate the luxurious finish and superb exclusive location.
