The village of Upper Basildon sits on the edge of the Berkshire Downlands in an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty' with far reaching scenic countryside surrounding it on all sides.
The village itself offers a range of amenities including a parish church, community Post Office, highly regarded C of E primary school, and a traditional Public House serving local ale and food. A splendid new village hall which has become the centre for a variety of community sports and activities utilising its adjoining sports field and tennis courts exists also. A local bus company runs a limited service from the village to Pangbourne on Thames, Reading, Streatley on Thames and Goring on Thames, where a mainline railway station with fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour (25 minutes from Reading) can be found.
Bradfield College, the well-known Public School located some three miles from Upper Basildon, has excellent leisure, fitness and sports facilities including a large indoor swimming pool all of which are available for use by members of the public. The facilities also include squash, badminton and tennis courts, hockey and a 9-hole golf course.
In addition to having its own well revered primary school, locally the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of both state and private schooling, of particular note; Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, Downe House, Cranford House, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.
Situated in a peaceful and idyllic location on the quiet fringe of this popular village, 20 Kiln Ride is a simply charming family home with a wholly relaxing ambience, with spacious and flexibly appointed accommodation overlooking delightfully mature gardens and grounds which back on to woodland.
A semi-detached home of contemporary chalet design having mellow brick elevations under a pitched tile roof with dormers to the first floor.
