Wallingford was a walled Saxon Town on the Thames, and the remains of the town walls can still be seen today. William the Conqueror built Wallingford Castle, which was used as a royal residence until the time of the Black Death. The remains of the Castle can be seen from the Castle Gardens. Today Wallingford is a thriving Market Town; the centre is a major conservation area with examples of churches and architecture dating back to the 14th Century. The landscape from the River Thames is officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Being a Town, Wallingford offers every means of amenity one would expect. The narrow streets with their variety of small shops, pubs and restaurants, the antique shops in the Lamb Arcade, and the parks, commons and gardens make it a very pleasant town. Wallingford is within easy reach of both the M40 and the M4, and is conveniently located within access of Henley, Reading, & Oxford.
A limestone covered porch leads to the part glazed front door, opening into the reception space. The L-shaped accommodation is open plan, with checkerboard tiled floor. A modern vaulted extension has been built within the last few years, designed to serve as the kitchen with pipe work and plumbing in situ. This space has underfloor heating, a feature full height window with electric switchable smart privacy glass, providing opacity with the click of a button, and frameless folding doors which open fully onto the front terrace to create a real sense of inside/outside living. The L-shaped room continues into the dining space and into the sitting room, with original ceiling beams and a fireplace with sandstone surround and terracotta hearth housing a cast iron wood burner. Wooden folding doors lead into an original snug, with William Morris wallpaper, an ornate Victorian cast iron mantle piece and double doors allowing in natural light. At the rear is a kitchenette area, with a boiler cupboard. (This space would ideally be converted to a utility upon completion of the kitchen). Off this space is a shower room, with original exposed stone wall.
A turning staircase leads to the first floor landing, with an original wooden panelled wall. The main bedroom overlooks the front with a southeast aspect, ceiling beams and a decorative cast iron fireplace. There are two further rear aspect bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling and feature stained glass, and another with a full range of wooden panelled wardrobes surrounding a decorative cast iron fireplace. There is also a large unfinished bathroom with vaulted ceiling and skylight, currently fitted with working toilet and basin but with plumbing in situ for a large bath/shower. All first floor rooms have reclaimed wooden doors.
There is block paved off street parking for two cars at the front. A gate opens from the parking into the garden, which is located entirely to the front of the property. A path leads through planted beds, including a variety of flower plants as well as fruiting pear and apple trees, onto a southeast facing checkerboard tiled terrace bounded by a recently constructed wall and folly built using reclaimed stone. There is also a large timber shed/workshop with power and a potting shed.
