Goring on Thames lies serenely in the beautiful Thames Valley set between the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire and the Berkshire Downlands opposite above the village of Streatley, the area known geographically as the ‘Goring Gap' and designated an ‘AONB'.
In 2010 Goring was awarded the prestigious “Oxfordshire Village of the Year” and also the coveted “South of England” title. Local amenities include a super primary school, an excellent range of interesting shops, a bank, restaurants and riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist, library, and importantly a mainline railway station providing fast commuter services up to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. In addition to outstanding local secondary schooling such as Langtree School, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; The Oratory, Pangbourne College, Cranford House, The Manor, Moulsford Preparatory, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine.
The central village ‘Conservation Area' has a wealth of architecturally interesting properties, many listed and dating from around the 16th Century. Historically Goring traces back to Saxon times.
Streatley on Thames, on the Berkshire side of the river, is another picturesque village surrounded by hills and woodlands now mainly owned by the National Trust. Fronting onto the river by the bridge crossing over to Goring is the luxury 4 star riverside hotel the Swan renowned for its fine cuisine and leisure and fitness facilities.
Milldown Road is an established ‘no through' residential road situated off the Wallingford Road, comprising mainly older properties dating from around the turn of the last Century, largely built using local bricks from the Woodcote kiln and with the attractive architectural detailing and features associated with the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
Dating from the early 1900's, 3 Milldown Road is a semi-detached property built-in traditional vernacular style incorporating the much-admired architectural features associated with the Edwardian era. Via an enclosed porch, the front door opens into a reception hall and on to a front family room, rear open plan sitting/dining room, kitchen room with rear door to the garden, and a cloakroom. Upstairs are two good double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The house occupies a generous plot, affording the potential to modernise and enlarge the property subject to relevant permissions.
The property is approached over a private driveway flanked by a mature front garden and leading up to a detached single garage. Wide side access is afforded from front to rear where the principle garden is secluded and mainly laid to lawn, arranged in two areas divided by a mature central hedge. A large patio terrace leading off the rear of the house provides the ideal spot for outside dining and entertaining.
