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 the Victorian era, Sheppey Cottage is an impressive detached house of generous proportions, standing well back from the road in a spacious plot of ¼ of an Acre. The house provides excellent flexibly arranged family accommodation and is impeccably presented throughout. To the ground floor an attractive timber framed and tiled roof Porch opens up to a large central Reception Hall, a room in itself with solid oak floors which continue through the family & dining rooms. On either side are the two principle Sitting Rooms with bay windows and one with original fireplace. To the rear of the house is a large open plan contemporary Kitchen & Dining Room, adjoining the Utility Room with rear door butler sink and Cloakroom. The Kitchen & Utility Room are bespoke built of Maple & Oak, and have granite worktops. Upstairs all leading off a central landing are the Master Bedroom with En-Suite Shower Room, 3 further excellent Double Bedrooms and a spectacular Family Bathroom with steam shower and picture window overlooking the stunning gardens. The property has been sympathetically extended to afford generous accommodation whilst retaining and complimenting its character and period features.
The house stands well back in an elevated position, with timber five bar gate opening into a gravelled driveway affording ample parking space for numerous cars, bordered with a lawned front garden and mature trees & hedges affording seclusion. To one side is a detached Garage with light & power, loft storage and an external log store. To one side of the house is a useful garden store, and to the opposite side a gate affording access to the rear, where external light & power are fitted.
