Situated in scenic countryside designated an area of âOutstanding Natural Beautyâ, the small village of Lower Basildon lies approximately midway between Pangbourne and Streatley on Thames at the foot of the Berkshire Downlands overlooking the Thames Valley and across to the Chilterns on the Oxfordshire side of the river.
Comprehensive everyday amenities and facilities including shops, banks, health centres, libraries and excellent primary schools are available at Goring on Thames and Pangbourne with both villages also having mainline stations providing fast commuter services to Reading and up to London Paddington in well under the hour, and Crossrail to Canary Wharf to be commissioned shortly. Road communications are also excellent with Reading and the M4 motorway being easily accessible.
On the edge of Lower Basildon stands the historic Basildon House, now owned by the National Trust and open to the public as is Beale Park, which extends along the banks of the river where can be seen many exotic varieties of animals and birds as well as a miniature railway. Near the river off Church Lane is the historic 13th century Parish Church of St Bartholomews. A footpath along the Thames is accessible a short distance from the house.
In addition to nearby villages having their own well revered primary school and secondary schools, locally the area is also extremely well served by an excellent range of both state and private schooling, of particular note; Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, Downe House, Cranford House, Moulsford Preparatory, The Manor, Abingdon Boys and The School of St Helen & Katharine. A variety of secondary school buses run through Lower Basildon.
12 Reading Road is an appealing period cottage, with white elevations, exposed timber detail, and a pitched clay tile roof. The front door opens into a vaulted entrance porch with space for coats and boots. Beyond this is the sitting & dining room, with slate floor and open fireplace. To the rear is the kitchen with stable door to the garden, and the family bathroom. Upstairs are three good double bedrooms, with the master having a bank of fitted wardrobes. Set in a generous plot, the cottage has a wealth of charm and has the potential for enlargement subject to relevant permissions.
In front of the cottage is a gravelled driveway providing off road parking space. There is side access to the rear, where leading via a stable door from the kitchen is a courtyard with detached outbuilding with fitted services, used as a home gym. Steps lead up to the principle garden, elevated from the house and enjoying attractive far reaching views. A gravelled terrace provides the ideal location for outside dining and entertaining, with a summer house off to one side. The garden is mainly lawned, with an array of mature plants and trees including two apples and two cherries. The gardens gently rise, and to the top is a large workshop/shed.
In all the grounds amount to approximately 0.13 of an acre.
