The picturesque village of Goring-on-Thames is situated on the Oxfordshire side of the “Goring Gap” between the Chiltern Hills and the Berkshire Downs, designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The centres of both Goring and, across the Thames, Streatley are Conservation Areas, noted for their many period properties dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries.
Goring offers a good range of amenities, including shops, library, health centre, dentist, traditional inns, hotel and churches (Catholic and C of E). Excellent schools, both private and state, are close by. Importantly, there is a main-line railway station providing excellent commuter services up to London (Paddington) via Reading in well under the hour. The village also has excellent road communications with nearby towns and both the M4 and M40 motorways.
Streatley-on-Thames on the Berkshire side of the river, is another delightful village, surrounded by hills and woodlands owned by the National Trust. The Swan at Streatley is a luxury, riverside, four-star hotel, renowned for its fine cuisine and leisure facilities.
Walnut Tree Court is an exclusive development of five detached houses fronting onto their own private courtyard/drive entrance, built in 1988 to a high standard by well-respected local builder John Dexter, under the auspices of the NHBC. Situated within the “conservation area”, the houses are of traditional design and construction with attractive brick elevations incorporating decorative detail under a pitched clay tile roof.

generous room sizes, flexibly arranged and with excellent outside amenity.
Well presented, it offers an opportunity for decorative update.
