The picturesque village of Whitchurch on Thames lies just into South Oxfordshire on the northern bank of the River Thames at the foot of the Chilterns escarpment, with the river forming the boundary between two counties. The village has a wealth of period properties, many Listed as being of special historic and architectural merit and interest and the High Street and immediate surrounding area is now a Conservation Area. The River Thames continues to provide a tranquil background with its water meadows and leisurely way of life. There are numerous riverside and country walks and the surrounding scenic countryside is designated as being an “AONB”. In the village there are two ‘Olde Worlde' inns, a well revered primary school and a well-used cricket ground supported by an enthusiastic village team.
The village boasts an outstanding primary school, and is also in the catchment area of the well -regarded Langtree Secondary school, based in nearby Woodcote (with own bus route). There is also an excellent range of private schooling, including Moulsford Preparatory, Cranford House, The Oratory Preparatory, Pangbourne College, The Abbey School, Abingdon Boys and the School of St Helen & Katharine.
The larger village of Pangbourne on Thames, connected to Whitchurch by a Toll Bridge, offers a comprehensive range of facilities with shops including supermarket and WH Smith, banks, impressive new health centre, library, dentists, outdoor activity centre including canoeing and climbing to name but a few, and a main line railway station providing fast commuter services to Reading and London, (Paddington) in well under the hour. There are also good road communications enabling easy access to Reading, Newbury, Oxford, Henley and the M4 Motorway at Theale. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrification of the line will significantly improve travelling times to East and West destinations.
Recently built in approximately 2014, Little Holme is a stunning detached contemporary home of impressive proportions and generous room sizes throughout and impeccably presented, set within an idyllic countryside location whilst being within walking distance of extensive amenities and mainline train station.
The front door opens into a spacious central reception hall with cloakroom and feature oak and glass staircase, as well as solid oak flooring extending through much of the ground floor. Leading off the hall is a sleek and stylish fitted ‘Bulthaup' kitchen with a host of integrated Miele appliances opening around to a large open plan dining and living room with floor to ceiling glazing and bi-folding doors, creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor space. Beyond the kitchen is a rear hall with built in storage, utility room and internal door to the double garage. Also on the ground floor is the 4th bedroom or additional reception room, with fitted storage and the space and plumbing for en-suite facilities to be installed.

A raised timber decked veranda wraps around the house with access leading off several ground floor rooms, providing the ideal spot for outside dining and entertaining. Attractively laid out and enjoying a stunning rural setting, the gardens are a real feature of the property.
