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 2022, which together with the completed electrification of the line has significantly improved travelling times to East and West destinations.
Jordleys enjoys an exceptionally relaxing ambience and outlook, being privately appointed situated in mature landscaped gardens and grounds adjoining The River Thames tow path, which extend in total to approximately 3 acres, having approximately 1 acre allocated as formal gardens and tennis court, and approximately 2 acres allocated as paddock. Superb and convenient outside amenity is also afforded, with great flexibility in use, complementing the property as a whole extremely well and adding greatly to the overall appeal.
Designed and project managed by most-revered architects, Bicknell & Hamilton, famous for contemporary 1960’s architecture in Paddington, the main house is quite stunning, and a most charming family home, both contemporary and engaging, presenting itself in a curved format which takes great advantage of the stunning views over its grounds and beyond to the wooded hillside above Streatley-on-Thames, on the opposing side of The River Thames.
More recently modernised, yielding a very real and tasteful quality readily apparent on viewing, spacious and flexible well-appointed accommodation is afforded, including to the main house, a master bedroom suite, 3 further bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a main open plan reception room which is most impressive, by design bringing the gardens visually in to the room itself, whilst the self-contained annexe offers a sitting room / bedroom, kitchenette, and shower room.
Planning permission was granted in November 2021 to enlarge the main house, whilst duly connecting it to the self-contained annexe, with adaptation and cladding works integral to the new design.
It is also thought that clear potential exists for complete re-development of one larger home, if so desired, subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained.
Such wonderful properties such as Jordleys are rarely presented to the marketplace, as such viewing is highly recommended.
The property occupies an advantageous position off a private gravelled lane, which is situated at the end of Manor Road, with wide and tall electrically operated timber gates opening on to a long winding driveway which privately meanders down to the main gravelled courtyard driveway, flanked by extensive hedging and trees with a lawned garden off to one side.
The extensive gardens and grounds, benefit from a partially elevated setting, with fabulous views over the property’s adjoining paddocks and beyond to the wooded hills on the opposing side of The River Thames.
Mainly laid to lawn, a wealth of mature trees, shrubs, hedging, and planted borders provide a simply stunning vista, enhanced by architectural garden walling, providing a most private and tranquil place to spend time, perfect for ‘Al Fresco’ dining, and most engaging outdoor pursuits.
Off the courtyard driveway, on the opposing side to the main house, there is a stunning period greenhouse with potting shed, which is a real treat. Sheltered behind the greenhouse and potting shed, and enjoying a secret garden esque environment, there is a newly refurbished tennis court with astro turf.
Simply stunning, beautifully planted and designed, the gardens themselves are only enhanced by the peaceful setting and awe-inspiring views, and in all, extend to approximately 3 acres.
Services: Mains water, electricity, drainage, and gas are connected. Gas fired central heating.
