Shiplake is a very popular Thames side village. Local amenities include a village shop/post office, butcher, garage and The Baskerville, an award-winning public house and restaurant.
The railway station gives mainline access (via Twyford) in 8 minutes or Reading (18 minutes) with a fast service to London, Paddington (from 25 minutes). Henley-on-Thames, Marlow and Reading are all within easy reach and offer a more comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and recreational facilities.
The area is well served for schools, including Reading Blue Coat, Shiplake College, The Abbey School for Girls and Queen Anne's in Caversham. The Studio is also in the catchment area of Shiplake Primary School.
There are boating activities on the River Thames, and Henley is world-famous for the annual Henley Royal Regatta and hosts the Henley Festival of Music & Arts, Henley Literary Festival and regional farmers markets.
There is golf at Henley and Huntercombe and racing at nearby Ascot, Windsor and Newbury. There are excellent walks beside the river and in the nearby Chiltern Hills.
A spacious entrance hall leads to a magnificent galleried sitting room with views down the manicured lawns to the river where an abundance of active river life add to the tranquil setting. There are 2 other reception rooms and a conservatory where one can appreciate the views and setting of this fine home. Off the first floor galleried landing, there are 4 good sized bedrooms with an en suite bathroom and an ensuite shower room.
The house has benefitted from regular care and well-planned maintenance and was painted externally in 2021. The house has double glazing, cavity wall insulation and gas central heating. To add to the privacy the house is approached through discreet electric gates where there is covered parking that leads to the garage/workshop. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the private setting and yet the convenience of this fine home.
