DESCRIPTION: An outstanding individually designed character modern house in first class order throughout, situated in one of the prettiest and probably most important semi-rural lanes within the heart of this famous Thames side village. Cleevelands is within easy walking distance of open countryside and footpaths giving splendid country walks and also only approximately a mile from the village centre and its railway station.
Special Features: * The outstanding semi-rural location. * Complete privacy. * Splendid far reaching views. * Professionally landscaped gardens to front and rear to also include a raised bed vegetable garden to one side and a wild flower meadow towards the rear of the garden. * The plot is very sunny. * Polished natural oak flooring within the reception hall.
* A Very large kitchen/living room well fitted to include a first class modern AGA Master Chef cooking range which has 3 ovens and a grill and electrically operated 5-ring gas hob over and an AGA stainless steel extractor hood.
The whole of the kitchen/living room has ceramic tiled flooring and also includes a twin bowl ceramic sink unit and polished hard wood working surfaces. There is a central preparation Island with cupboards and pot shelves under and a door to utility room and a door from the living room area to the garden and terrace. * The drawing room is a large symmetrical room with pretty carved marble fireplace with slate hearth, presently fitted with a coal effect gas fire. Many of the doors are original restored pine panelled.
The drawing room is double aspect. * The sitting room has two attractive bay windows with box seats, the windows overlooking the front. There is also a fireplace in this room and a glass panelled door giving access to the side. * Polished wood block flooring is a feature of the sitting room. * The playroom, which was at one time used as a dining room has access directly from the hall. * All the bathroom and shower fittings throughout the property are up to date with the recent addition of an en-suite shower room to the guest bedroom.
* To the front of the property is parking for a number of cars, lots of room for a garage or a car port if required subject to planning consent. * Immediately to the rear of the property is a covered loggia which is open to the terrace. * The family bathroom has both a shower and a Victorian style tub with ceramic flooring, half panelled walls and also a large shower to one side.
* The master bedroom suite is large with a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom with shower, further extensive range of wardrobes and pretty views from the diamond shaped windows. * Another fine feature are the tall windows stretching from just above the hall to the ceiling of the landing. * But it is the position which is perhaps the most important feature, this part of Elvendon Road and Icknield Road hold some of the most attractive and valuable period country houses to be found in Goring. Many of the houses were built in the late Victorian period with extensive grounds.
Only a few doors away the Arts & Crafts Haydown House has several acres of grounds, together with a number of properties with an attractive variation of architecture but all sharing one thing in common, they are exclusive country houses in an exclusive country lane and all can walk out of their front doors and gain easy access to footpaths and bridle paths leading through countryside of exquisite beauty.
Schools & Local Facilities: The village of Goring on Thames has a fine selection of shops, a station giving an intercity fast train connection to London Paddington for the commuter and a good car park, a good village school within walking distance and a number of private schools easily accessible by car to include The Oratory School, The Oratory Preparatory School, Moulsford Preparatory School for Boys, Cranford House, St Andrew`s Preparatory School on the edge of Pangbourne, Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, Elstree and Downe House. There is an excellent golf club in Streatley, Goring & Streatley Golf Club.
There are pretty pubs and restaurants in the village and surrounding countryside with the riverside inns, The Swan in the centre of Goring and the Leatherne Bottle a few minutes drive outside Goring in South Stoke, offering fine cuisine in a beautiful river setting. An excellent Waitrose will be found 10 minutes away in the ancient riverside market town of Wallingford.
It is always very difficult to find a country house of good quality, beautifully decorated and maintained in a tranquil semi-rural location and yet with the ability to gain access to major centres of commerce with ease.
