Location
The Goring Gap, as it is known, is recognised as one of the most beautiful stretches of the River Thames and encompasses the villages of Goring & Streatley, which lie on opposite banks of the river in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Pavilion is situated close to the centre of Goring, within easy walking distance of a range of shops and services as well as restaurants, cafes, a doctor's surgery and primary school. There is a wide range of independent schools within easy daily driving distance, and excellent communications to London and the rest of the country by road via the M4 and A34 or by train via Goring & Streatley Station which provides a regular service to Reading and London, including a direct link to the City and Heathrow via Crossrail (from 2018). The spectacular scenery in and around the two villages includes some of the most photographed and painted scenes in the south of England, and is the setting for such classic books as Wind in the Willows, and Three Men in a Boat. The village has a thriving local community with a wide range of clubs, societies and special interest groups.

The Property
The Pavilion is arguably the best riverside site in Goring and Streatley on the Upper Thames. It lies near the centre of the village on Thames Road, an attractive tree lined street and is set in 1.3 acres of mature gardens and grounds with 140' frontage onto the River Thames. As the name suggests the house was a former tennis pavilion which lay in the original grounds of the adjoining property, Thames Bank, an Edwardian riverside villa. The Pavilion is thought to date from around 1905 and was converted to a house in the late 1950's. 27 years ago it was significantly enlarged and re-furbished to create a very comfortable family home, but still offers potential for further enlargement.

Planning potential
The Pavilion also offers a rare opportunity to re-develop this superb riverside site. Preliminary discussions with the local planning authority indicate that the site would be suitable for a substantial two storey family house.

Gardens
The gardens are a charming feature of the property and are well laid out with lawns, mature trees and shrubs, providing a lovely setting for the house. The gardens are particularly wildlife friendly, including an abundant variety of waterfowl visitors. There is a river frontage of 140' with good mooring facilities, including lighting, power, water supply and pump-out services adjacent. There are fine views across the river to the open water meadows beyond, with Streatley Hill and Lardon Chase providing a scenic background to the view. The boundaries are mainly fenced and provide a high degree of privacy, with gated vehicle and pedestrian accesses from Thames Road into the property.

This is a special site and location offering a unique opportunity to acquire a rarely available prime Thameside property.
