The much prized village of Goring on Thames occupies a stunning location in the Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills and Berkshire Downlands as the River flows from Oxford down to Reading, in an area of scenic landscape 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 won 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, Post Office, 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.
N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to Paddington and central London destinations.
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 connections.
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, situated on the opposite 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.
Elmhurst Walk is a gravelled tree-lined ‘no through' lane approached off Upper Red Cross Road in the very popular central part of the village close to the Gardiner Village Green. The road comprises individual detached properties, all built since the war which extend along one side of the road only, set behind tree-lined frontages. On the opposite side of the road there is a wide bank set behind a tall fenced boundary, with beyond a deep culvert along the bottom of which runs the railway line.
Situated in a private and well favoured central part of the village, built in the late 1950's and later extended, Dingle Bank affords spacious and flexibly arranged family accommodation. Immaculately presented throughout, you enter through a particularly spacious outer hallway/boot room providing excellent utility space, through into the inner reception hall with beech flooring. Off the central hallway are the Cloakroom, contemporary Kitchen/Breakfast Room with a host of appliances, 5 burner gas hob, two corian sinks and Corian work-tops, large L-shaped Sitting Room with original parquet flooring, Study, 20' Dining Room, Conservatory with new thermally efficient ‘blue glass' roof and Utility Room which has an integral door to the Garage/ Workshop which has the benefit of being centrally heated.
To the first floor is a fantastic Master Suite with en-suite Bathroom with separate double shower and cloakroom, four further Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom also with separate shower. A further staircase leads to the attic room, fully boarded and used as a hobby room, with velux windows to the roof. The property benefits from UPVc primary double glazing throughout.
Off Elmhurst Walk, a private driveway opens up, providing ample parking space, flanked by a front lawn and mature trees, and leading down to the double garage. To the front corner is a timber store shed. Paved steps lead down to the front entrance. Close-boarded fencing runs the length of both side boundaries, with an ancient Yew hedge to the garden's rear boundary.
Access can be gained around both sides of the house to the rear, where a wide paved patio terrace leads off the conservatory, providing an excellent spot for al-fresco dining and entertaining.
