This delightful detached period cottage occupies an attractive location on the edge of the town. The Goggs is a narrow residential lane that offers public access to the nearby meadows and country footpaths and yet is only a seven minute walk from the shops and facilities of the High Street. There is ample on-street parking. The cottage has an attractive rendered facade with some gothic style leaded light windows. A small south-facing garden lies alongside where there is also a timber framed and insulated store with power. The interior has some attractive features including an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with a multi-fuel stove. There are also exposed structural timbers in the sitting room and in two of the three bedrooms. A modern kitchen was installed fairly recently with attractive contemporary styled cabinets and fittings and the property was re-roofed about 15 years ago.
Watlington is reputedly England’s smallest town with its origins dating from the 6th century. The town has a range of sports facilities that embrace football and cricket as well as tennis, squash and bowls. There are good local shops including a first class butcher and delicatessen and some excellent restaurants and pubs. Watlington Primary school and Rainbow Corner day nursery and pre-school have an ‘outstanding’ ofsted rating and senior education is provided by the well-regarded Icknield Community College. The Chiltern Hills rise above the town and offer some of the finest landscapes in south-east England. There is much on offer here for outdoor enthusiasts, cyclists and walkers as The Icknield Way (Ridgeway National Trail) passes close to the town. Watlington is also the heartland of the re-introduced Red Kite that now soar above the town’s roof tops.
