The village of Woodcote, which lies just off the Reading to Oxford Road, is situated in an area of âOutstanding Natural Beautyâ surrounded by the scenic countryside of the Chilterns, with extensive beech woodlands and undulating fields. The village is some 500â (160 metres) above sea level and there are glorious far-reaching views from several parts of the village. Originally a small community based on farming and the countryside, Woodcote has grown substantially, especially during the 1960s and 1970s, is now a thriving village with a good range of local amenities including supermarket, public house, modern health centre and excellent education facilities with a toddler playgroup, and primary and secondary schools.
In addition to having the well revered and outstanding state primary and secondary schooling, 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, Queen Anneâs School, 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.
Near the centre of the village is the Parish Church, which was rebuilt in 1846 in a Norman style on the site of the original Norman structure, with a few traces of original walling still surviving. Woodcote House, an historic country mansion built in the 1730s, now forms part of the Oratory School, standing in extensive park like grounds east of the main village. A variety of local activities appealing to young and old are based in the Village Hall and nearby Community Centre and which are well publicised in the monthly village newspaper, the Woodcote Correspondent, circulated to all local residents.
Woodcote has good road communications with easy access for Reading, Henley, Oxford and the M40 and M4 networks. For rail commuters there are mainline stations locally at Pangbourne and Goring on Thames, as well as Reading, all providing fast services up to London (Paddington).
Whitehouse Road leads into the very centre of the village and is essentially a non-estate road comprising a mixture of properties reflecting the development of the village over the past 200 years with one or two properties dating back to the 1700âs or earlier.
N.B. Crossrail services are scheduled to be commencing from Reading which together with the electrifying of the line will significantly improve travelling times to central London destinations.
48 Whitehouse Road is a delightful detached family home of traditional construction and architectural design, having red brick elevations under a pitched pan tile roof, with wide glazing affording delightful natural light. Sympathetically enlarged and modernised in more recent years, careful attention has been paid to enhance the traditional aspects of the property, whilst adding a light and airy contemporary flare, with spacious well-appointed modern and contemporary accommodation of approximately 1,173 sq ft blending seamlessly with that of a more traditional nature, and with stylish fixtures and fittings evident throughout, culminating in the presentation of a simply charming family home.
The configuration of the property does lend itself to further enlargement, if desired, to suit ones own personal requirements. In May 2017, planning permission was granted to enlarge the property on both the ground and first floors, offering an indication of what could be achieved if one would choose to enlarge the property, albeit would be buyers will naturally have their own idea as towards how to enlarge the property at a later date, should they desire to do so.
The property has a wide mature frontage with tall ever green hedging running along the frontage, providing great privacy, and with a gravelled driveway off to one side, which leads down to the garage, and also peels off to one side, forming a parking forecourt for numerous vehicles.
Across the rear of the property, approached off the conservatory, there is a delightful slightly raised timber terrace, which overlooksâ the main rear garden, and enjoys a predominantly southern aspect, perfect for âAl-Frescoâ dining. A further stone laid terrace area runs across the remaining width of the property, with two separate pathways, one gravel and one stone laid, running off towards the main garden.
The main central garden is laid to lawn, with fenced and attractively hedged boundaries, enhanced with beautifully planted shrub and herbaceous borders. To the further end of the garden, there is a super vegetable garden with raised vegetable beds, and a timber shed off to one corner.
Both private and mature, and delightfully attractive, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.167 of an acre, and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
