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 ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
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 and restaurants, together with a riverside café, boutique hotel, two olde worlde inns, health centre, veterinary practice, dentist and library. Importantly, a mainline railway station provides fast commuter services to London (Paddington) in well under the hour. The area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of state and private schooling.
The central village ‘Conservation Area’ has a wealth of architecturally interesting properties, many listed and dating from around the 16th Century. Historically, Goring-on-Thames traces back to Saxon times.
In addition to having well revered and outstanding local state primary and secondary schooling, including a primary school within Goring-on-Thames itself, the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of private schooling, of particular note; Cranford House School, The Oratory Preparatory School, Moulsford Preparatory School, St Andrews Preparatory School, The Oratory School, Pangbourne College, Brockhurst & Marlston House, Downe House, Rupert House School, Shiplake College, The Abbey School, Bradfield College, The Manor Preparatory School, Abingdon School, Abingdon Preparatory School, Radley College, and St Helen & St Katharine.
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 Swan at Streatley, a luxury 4 star riverside hotel with adjoining Coppa Club and leisure and fitness facilities.
Crossrail (Elizabeth Line) services have commenced from Reading, with the full service scheduled to commence in shortly, which together with the completed electrification of the line has significantly improved travelling times to East and West destinations.
Conveniently located close to the heart of this quintessential English riverside village and just a few minutes’ walk to the river Thames, shops, restaurants and mainline railway station, this stunning property with its contemporary finishes and period architecture enjoys a peaceful and private setting in delightfully mature electrically gated landscaped gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 0.27 of an acre.
Built to an exceptionally high standard, being of traditional architectural design in keeping with the local vernacular, internally a more striking balance of traditional and contemporary notes are evident, affording particularly generous accommodation of approximately 3,917 sq ft in total, including the detached double garage with annexe / studio over, with an inspired and striking layout to be found, boasting open plan contemporary living combined impressively with that of a rather more traditional air.
Opening through from the covered entrance porch with wide front door and flanked glazing, all principle reception rooms lead off a large galleried reception hall, including the drawing room with fireplace, family room, kitchen / dining room which opens through to the family room and out to the glazed veranda and gardens, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining.
From the galleried reception hall the staircase leads up to the 1st floor galleried landing, with a further staircase leading to the 2nd floor. To the 1st floor, there is a master bedroom suite with en-suite shower room, a 2nd bedroom suite with en-suite shower room, 2 further bedrooms, and a family bathroom with shower and roll top bath. Rising to the 2nd floor, the view down the stairwell is quite impressive, and from here there are 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom with shower and roll top bath.
Affording stylish and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout, a most impressive design and lifestyle is to be enjoyed, providing for a simply exquisite family home in a most charming and convenient location, with early viewing being highly recommended.
Hartslock House sits privately nestled away off Manor Road, close walking distance of the village centre, river, and mainline railway, accessed through tall timber electrically operated gates, which open on to a large driveway and forecourt, leading to the garaging and house itself, and with views through to the delightful gardens.
The detached double garage, has dual electric doors to the front, and a pedestrian door to the side, which leads to the annexe / studio over, and benefits from having a cloakroom to the ground floor also.
Across the rear of the house, matching French double doors from the kitchen / dining room and the drawing room open out on the stone laid paid terrace, which has a wide and deep timber and glazed veranda, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining and admiring the southerly aspect and views over the gardens and beyond.
The mainly lawned gardens wrap their way around the property on two sides, flanked with mature planting of shrubs, hedging, and trees, with colourful borders interspersed.
Simply stunning, yet most private and spacious, with far-reaching views to be enjoyed, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.27 of an acre, and are the subject of much care and attention, which will be evident upon viewing.
