The pretty Thameside village of South Stoke situated between Reading and Oxford, lies on the East bank of the river, set between the Berkshire Downlands and the Oxfordshire Chilterns in the wide River valley opposite the village of Moulsford, surrounded by scenic rural countryside designated an âArea of Outstanding Natural Beautyâ.
Largely unspoilt with only a limited amount of modern development, the village has a fine main street with many interesting period properties, some dating from the 16th century. Historically the village retains a close connection with Christchurch College in Oxford which was given land and property by Henry VIII at the time of the Reformation in the Middle Ages and as a result of this the timeless country way of life survives even today. Local amenities include a highly regarded traditional Inn âThe Perch & Pikeâ, and a popular Primary School, a village hall with recreation ground, a thriving Community Shop and a regular bus service between Wallingford, Goring-on-Thames, and Reading. The River Thames is within easy walking distance at each end of the village offering boating and recreational facilities including walks along the River Path to Goring and Wallingford.
In addition to having well revered and outstanding local 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, 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.
The historic Ridgeway Path also runs through the village, having crossed the river at Goring on Thames from Streatley, continuing along the riverbank to North Stoke where it leaves the Thames and continues up onto the Chilterns and the Icknield Way.
The nearby village of Goring on Thames offers more comprehensive shopping facilities including a modern health centre, dentist, library, several âOlde Worldeâ Inns, a Boutique Hotel, range of restaurants, two Riverside Bistro/CafÃ©s, and a mainline railway station providing fast commuter services up to Reading and London (Paddington) in well under an hour.
The larger historic town of Wallingford granted a Charter by Henry 11 in 1155, is also close by and has first class shopping facilities including a Waitrose.
The major centres of Reading, Oxford, Newbury and Henley on Thames are all within easy driving distance as are the M4 and M40 Motorways.
1 Cross Keys Road occupies an advantageous situation on the end of a terrace of 6 with the 2 end properties having appealing gabled roof elevations at the front, and is believed to originally date back to the early 1920âs. Traditionally constructed with whitened rendered elevations under a steeply pitched tiled roof, the accommodation is easily arranged and includes2 reception rooms, 3 bedrooms, and a bathroom.
A charming cottage, with delightful views afforded across to the open field on the other side of the road, further potential exists, either for personalisation, or enlargement. Planning Consent was previously granted in 2015 (Now lapsed, albeit it is thought to be easily re-instated) to extend at the side of the property on the ground floor providing a new entrance porch and enlarged hall with new cloakroom and a larger kitchen / breakfast room.
The property is set back from Cross Keys Road, a quiet village lane, standing proudly above a grassed bank which runs across the frontage, along the top of which is a footpath, with a private fenced boundary to the property. The garden at the front is lawned with flowers and shrubs to the borders extending along the side fronting on to the vehicular access drive which is shared with the adjoining property Meadow Bank.
The drive leads to a detached brick-built garage with pitch tiled roof, âup and overâ entrance door, loft storage, and a side pedestrian door.
Behind the property is a lawned garden having a fenced rear boundary and a timber framed outbuilding off to one side, with a pitched tiled roof comprising a store shed / workshop.
Services: All main services are connected. Central heating and domestic hot water from gas fired wall boiler located in the kitchen.
