An immaculate Arts and Crafts house, on a private road, in a superb edge of village location.

HOUSE AND GROUNDS

Located on the private and sought after Townsend Road, Dunvegan House sits in a wonderful edge of village location with beautiful views over farmland.

The house was originally built in 1902 by the local builder Smallbone, whose family later founded the famous Smallbone of Devizes kitchen company. Smallbone was a renowned local builder in the Edwardian period and a built a number of houses in Streatley, with Dunvegan House the third house he built, as can be seen on the original plaque displayed by the back door.

Designed in the popular Arts and Crafts style, there are a number of superb period features throughout the house, including the magnificent fireplace in the reception hall, as well as ornate corner fireplaces in many of the bedrooms. The house has been lovingly cared for and mixes period charm with modern day practicality. This really is an exceptionally good family home.

The gardens extend to about 0.53 of an acre and adjoin neighbouring farmland. There is an attractive terrace and a useful large garage.

OUR THOUGHTS ON STREATLEY

Streatley is one of the most sought-after village locations. Situated on the bank of the River Thames, which separates Streatley from the neighbouring Goring-on-Thames, the train station is within walking distance with direct trains in to London Paddington.

There are a number of excellent pubs and restaurants within walking distance including the stylish Coppa Club, with its River Terrace overlooking the water. Streatley and Goring have become a mecca for young families making the move from London and as a result there is a lively and vibrant atmosphere. With the River Thames running through the centre, the Berkshire Downs on one side and the Chilterns on the other, it is highly attractive with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors.

The area is well served by excellent schools, both state and private, including excellent primary schools in both Goring and Streatley as well as prep schools including Moulsford St. Andrew’s and The Oratory, as well as secondary schools including Bradfield College, Pangbourne College, Downe House and The Downs.
