In the panoramic Thames Valley between Reading and Oxford on the Berkshire/Oxfordshire borders lies the picturesque village of Goring on Thames nestling on the bank of the river opposite the village of Streatley. Situated at a historic crossing point of the Thames known as the ‘Goring Gap' where the ancient Ridgeway Path comes down from the Berkshire Downlands to meet the river then continues up onto the Chilterns and thence along the Icknield Way to East Anglia.
The surrounding countryside is a designated A.O.N.B. and the centres of both Goring and Streatley are now ‘Conservation Areas' thus preserving the many notable period properties some of which date from the 15th and 16th Centuries reflecting a rich architectural heritage.
Goring became increasingly prosperous following the arrival of Brunel's railway and there are many examples of imposing Victorian and Edwardian houses.
Today Goring is a thriving community well serviced by a good range of shops and amenities including a Bank, health centre, dentist, library, traditional inns, restaurants, boutique Hotel, riverside Café, Village Hall from where many activities are run, and an excellent Primary School with a wide range of both State and Private Schools available in the local area.
Most importantly, the village has a mainline station with fast services up to London (Paddington) which service will be greatly improved with the arrival of the Cross-rail in the near future. Road links are also excellent to major surrounding towns and for the M4 and M40 motorway networks.
Gatehampton Road on the Southern edge of the village is a “no-through” road leading out into scenic countryside from where there are panoramic views of the surrounding Chilterns and Berkshire Downlands which face one another on either side of the Thames Valley as the River flows downstream towards Pangbourne.
This ‘non-estate' road comprises mainly individual detached properties, some dating back to just after the First World War, having good-sized garden plots. There is easy access to the railway station, primary school and for the High Street shops and amenities in the centre of the village. Sheepcot Playing Field and the Tennis Courts are also located in the road and there are numerous country and riverside walks close at hand to enjoy the amazing scenery.
Originally believed to date from the 1920's and originating as a bungalow, The Nook has been transformed by the current owners into a 4 bedroom family home arranged over two floors, with fantastic open plan living space to the rear enjoying a delightful outlook over the attractive gardens and countryside beyond.
To the ground floor the Entrance Hall opens into the separate Sitting Room with wood burning stove, a Double Bedroom, Utility Room, Shower Room, and into the Kitchen with larder cupboard. The Kitchen opens into the impressive rear Living/Dining Room which spans the width of the house, and leads directly onto the garden. Upstairs is the Master Bedroom with Juliette balcony and beautiful views, a private Cloakroom, two further Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom. The property is light and bright throughout and offers a flexible arrangement, with the addition of a contemporary detached home-office.
The property stands well back with a feeling of space around it, with a lawned front garden and ample private driveway parking space. On both sides of the house there is gated pedestrian access to the rear, through to a timber garage providing excellent storage. A large gravelled terrace leads directly off the main reception room, providing the ideal spot for outdoor dining and entertaining. The main garden is laid to lawn and generous in size, with simply stunning views to the rear over the adjoining open countryside. Various seating areas are arranged to enjoy the delightful outlook. Part way down the garden is an excellent contemporary detached studio/home office, and to the further end of the garden is an additional timber storage shed.
Services: All mains services are connected to the property. Central heating and pressurised hot water from gas fired boiler.
