This beautifully presented Georgian family home was at one time the Toll House and was later extended by the Victorians and used as the gardener's cottage serving the Mapledurham Estate. Today it stands as a warm and inviting family home that has been thoughtfully refurbished throughout as well as extended. Making the most of its classic Georgian features, there are two formal reception rooms either side of the entrance hall that offer high ceilings, large latticed windows providing double aspect views to the front and gardens. As well, both reception rooms feature open fireplaces. Continuing along the entrance hall, there is a utility room and cloakroom to the left and the kitchen on the right. It is here that the current owners have sympathetically brought this house into the 21st century with a stylish, bespoke kitchen with slate floor and under floor heating, fitted units beneath granite work surfaces that is open plan to the vaulted, green oak dining and family area. This is without doubt the heart of this house and with its southerly aspect, means it is flooded by light, helped by the large windows and glazed doors that lead on to a raised decked area.
Four bedrooms on the first floor include the Master Bedroom with en-suite shower room and double aspect views, and similarly, the guest room but without an en-suite, both of which are located in the Georgian part of the house. The two remaining bedrooms are located at the rear in the Victorian section and a family bathroom serves the three bedrooms.
Greenmore sits in an enviable position on the edge of Goring Heath in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between the Berkshire Downs and the Chiltern Hills. Woodcote is nearby and has a local shop and post office and the Thameside villages of Goring and Pangbourne are both only approximately 3 miles away and provide a comprehensive range of local facilities and a main line rail link to London, Paddington within the hour. The attractive market town of Wallingford is just 7 miles away and has a full range of amenities including a large Waitrose, a hospital, individual and high street shops and several good restaurants. Reading is the closest large town with a train station serving London, Paddington in about 27 minutes and the added draw of Cross Rail due in 2019. There is excellent schooling for all requirements in the area; in particular, Queen Anne's Caversham, The Oratory, Radley College, Bradfield College, Cranford House and Moulsford preparatory schools, as well as having good links to Oxford for further schooling. The area also has fantastic sporting facilities including golf, clay pigeon shooting and racing, and the area is renowned for its walks and rides.
The southerly gardens have been beautifully landscaped by the current owners and lie largely to the side of the property. There is direct access from the kitchen and dining area onto a raised deck that runs the entire length of the new extension. The gardens have been planted with attractive flower beds and there is a good expanse of newly laid lawn. From the garden there are steps down to a newly created parking area where an electric sliding solid gate has been installed.
