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.
East Thurle, a stunning duplex apartment, occupies a particularly advantageous position, initially on the ground floor at the front right hand side of the house, with the added benefit of the elegant features and proportions of this fine building, notably the high ceilings which have deep period ceiling cornicing, leaded and architecturally imposing windows, walk-in curved bay window in the drawing room, and a feature balcony off the main bedroom, accessed through French doors. There are deep moulded skirtings and architraves around the panelled doors which all have period yet contemporary furniture.
This elegant and spacious duplex apartment affords well-appointed striking 3 bedroomed accommodation of approximately 1,691 sq ft, boasting a private covered porch with steps leading up to it, then opening in to your private entrance hall. With a 3rd bedroom suite / study to be found on the ground floor, to the 1st floor a great wealth of space and imposing accommodation reminiscent of the original manor house will be found, as will the awe-inspiring far reaching views across to The Berkshire Downlands.
Stylish contemporary fixtures and fittings combine traditional elegance, with great attention to detail being entirely evident throughout, and much to enthuse over, yielding a very real tasteful quality, wholly apparent on viewing.
Incorporating numerous attractive features throughout in such a delightful setting, early viewing is advised.
The professionally landscaped and beautifully laid out gardens and grounds provide for a an impressive approach to the property, deriving great benefit from the delightful mature and private setting.
