An expansive countryside property offering historic character, spacious accommodation and high quality fixtures and fittings. The property is believed to date back to the 16th century and benefits from retaining plenty of original features such as exposed timber beams and feature fireplaces. Due to the layout of the property, many of the rooms benefit from double aspect windows allowing in plenty of natural light. The central reception hall leads through to the spacious triple aspect sitting room. Featuring two sets of glazed double doors opening out onto the garden, an original brick fireplace and exposed beams to the
ceiling, the room is light, bright and characterfilled.
Adjacent to the drawing room is a useful study and also a good-sized dining room featuring built-in shelving to one wall. The country kitchen features a traditional terracotta tiled floor, and has been brought up-to-date with smart shaker-style units and modern integrated appliances, and also benefits from having an Aga range cooker. There is plenty of space in the kitchen for dining, and the area leads through to the large family room which
provides access to the rear terrace. The main stairs from the reception hall head to the first floor hallway for access the master bedroom with en suite bathroom. There is also a shower room servicing the three well proportioned bedrooms at this end of the house. Stairs from the family room lead to the fifth bedroom which has an en suite shower room and access to the other half of property through an adjoining door.

Located close by, Goring on Thames is a wellregarded Thameside village, which has a superb range of shops, restaurants, public houses
and a post office. There are also mainline rail links to London Paddington within the hour. There is local fine dining in Streatley at the award winning Miller of Mansfield Hotel and on the outskirts of the village Rossini at the Leatherne Bottel restaurant can be found which is famous for its waterside dining.
