Crays Pond is a small rural community centred around an historic old pond, situated on high ground on the southern edge of the Chilterns in an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty' to the north of Reading just above the scenic Thames Valley. The village is ideally placed with good road communications for Reading, Wallingford, Henley and the M4 and M40 motorway networks. The riverside villages of Pangbourne and Goring are both easily accessible, each offering established shopping centres and a range of facilities, including banks, modern health centres and importantly, mainline commuter stations with excellent services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. There are also a number of restaurants, hotels and olde worlde inns in the immediate local area.
The nearby village of Woodcote offers everyday shopping facilities including a co-op supermarket open seven days a week, Post Office stores, modern health centre and nursery, primary and secondary schools. The Oratory Prep. School is located within half a mile of the village and the main Oratory School is close by in Woodcote itself. The picturesque village of Whitchurch on Thames also has a high Ofsted rated Primary school and is within 1.5 miles.
Laurel Cottage is a brand new bespoke built two bedroom detached property, designed and finished to an exacting standard with high quality and tasteful touches throughout such as oak flooring, vaulted ceilings and underfloor heating. The front door opens into a spacious central reception hall with two storage cupboards and leads on to a light and bright kitchen with a host of high quality integral appliances, open plan onto the sitting/dining room with French doors to the garden. To the opposite side of the hall are two excellent sized double bedrooms, the second of which could be used as an additional reception room if preferred, and a stylish bathroom. The cottage sits back in its plot, with all rooms overlooking the delightful gardens.
The property has the benefit of a 10 year NHBC build guarantee.
The property occupies a corner plot with a wide frontage onto a quiet lane, with mature hedged and fenced boundaries offering seclusion. The wide entrance opens onto a spacious gravelled driveway affording off road parking for 4 cars. There is gated side access to the rear, where the principle garden is laid to lawn, wrapping around three sides of the bungalow.

The attractive gardens are newly landscaped and easily maintained, while providing the opportunity for a keen gardener to further develop in their own style.
