Goring on Thames lies serenely in the beautiful Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire and the Berkshire Downlands opposite above the village of Streatley, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap' and designated an ‘AONB'.
In 2010 Goring was awarded the prestigious “Oxfordshire Village of the Year” and also the coveted “South of England” title. Local amenities include a super primary school, an excellent range of interesting shops, restaurants and riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist, library, and importantly a mainline railway station providing fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. In addition to outstanding local secondary schooling such as Langtree School, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; The Oratory, Pangbourne College, Cranford House, The Manor, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.
The central village ‘Conservation Area' has a wealth of architecturally interesting properties, many listed and dating from around the 16th Century. Historically Goring traces back to Saxon times.
Streatley on Thames, on the 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.
Dating from 1910, Milverton is a commanding detached house of impressive proportions, enjoying space on all sides of the house, set in a secluded position. A villa built-in the traditional vernacular style incorporating attractive architectural features associated with the Edwardian era, having appealing red brickwork with decorative detailing under a pitched clay tile roof. Both externally and internally it displays a wealth of character and original features including fireplaces and stripped pine doors & floorboards.
The property has been carefully maintained and is beautifully presented, with well apportioned and flexibly arranged family accommodation. To the ground floor the spacious Reception Hall opens to three excellent Reception Rooms including the Sitting Room with wood burning stove & bay window, dual aspect Dining Room with fireplace, light and spacious Family Room leading onto the garden, and delightful Kitchen/Breakfast Room with wood burning stove, Pantry and Utility Area. Upstairs a central landing leads to four generous Double Bedrooms including a Master with En-suite Bathroom, and a further Family Bathroom.
The house stands well back in an elevated position, with a mature and completely secluded front garden set behind a hedged frontage, with a driveway parking space and detached Garage situated to the left hand side. Steps lead up to the house and generous principle gardens set to the side and rear of the house, laid in part to lawn with an array of mature trees, shrubs and specimen plants, adding colour, interest and total privacy. A patio terrace directly off the house provides the perfect spot for outside dining & entertaining. To one side is a vegetable garden made up of raised beds, useful storage sheds and a greenhouse.
