MANY people love a riverside stroll after dinner and with this house in Moulsford, you can be down at the water’s edge in minutes – just by opening the gate at the bottom of the garden.
The house, El Pirata, is in Ferry Lane, right by the Thames.
And its long garden leads down to the river and through to the towpath, where you can walk north to Wallingford or south to Goring.
The house, whose name translates as The Pirate, is an immaculately presented detached four-bedroom bungalow.
It has been refurbished throughout to provide excellent living accommodation with high specification fixtures and fittings.
The accommodation includes a kitchen with tiled floor, composite granite work tops and a built-in Rangemaster cooker.
There is also a utility room with space for a free-standing fridge and white goods and additional cupboards for storage.
Both the sitting room and dining room have French doors to the garden, as does one of the bedrooms.
The house has three further double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, and a bathroom and shower room.
The house is approached by a gravelled driveway with a five-bar gate, and ample off-street parking.
There is also an oak-clad double detached garage and locked storage.
Next to the house is a patio with barbecue area, and the rest of the garden is laid to lawn and well stocked with fruit trees, and set in approximately one-third of an acre.
At the bottom of the garden, steps lead down to the river.
Moulsford is within a short drive of Goring on Thames and Wallingford, a pretty riverside market town.
It sits in the foothills of the Berkshire Downs, and is also the home of the famous Bronze Age Moulsford torc, which was bought by the Museum of Reading in 1961.
The village has two private schools, Cranford House School and Moulsford Preparatory School, and a cricket ground, while The Beetle & Wedge Restaurant, only a stone’s throw from the house, is famed for its fine dining.
Stations at Goring & Streatley, and Cholsey, both nearby, offer a mainline railway station with direct access to Reading, Oxford and London Paddington.
The M4 junction 12 and the M40 J8 are both with easy access.
El Pirata is for sale for £750,000 through Davis Tate in Goring on Thames.
