Sonning Golf Club  Duffield Road  Sonning  Reading RG4 6GJ

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  An instantly appealing and most charming semi-detached cottage on the edge of the village of Cholsey.  The property has been occupied by statutory tenants for at least 50 years and is now suitable at the very least for modernisation and improvement, but also lends itself to a 2-storey extension – perhaps similar to the adjoining property.


The gardens are a delightful feature and although adjoining the railway line would certainly support a significantly larger property.  Cholsey is a most desirable village about 3 miles to the south/south-west of Wallingford and close to a good road network including the A4074 which runs between Reading and Oxford.  Just to the west is the A34 giving access to the M4 (J13) to the south, and to the north the M40 (J9).  There are alternative and nearer access points to the M40 motorway including J6 on the outskirts of Watlington.


ACCOMMODATION:  The accommodation briefly comprises (all dimensions are approximate):


On the First Floor:

Bedroom 1:  15’ x 11’  Fireplace

Bedroom 2:  11’10 x 10’2  Fireplace


On the Ground Floor:

Entrance Hall

Sitting Room:  11’8 x 10’10  Fireplace

Kitchen:  11’10 x 10’  Sink unit, solid fuel Rayburn, cupboard containing hot water cylinder, walk-in larder

Bathroom:  White suite of bath, wash basin and WC.


Outside:  There is a gateway providing access to a drive for off-road parking.  This could be extended to accommodate several cars owing to the commanding frontage.


The gardens are an attractive feature and include a semi-detached brick built outhouse and a range of timber sheds.  The gardens extend to about 0.14 acres.


SERVICES:  Mains electricity, drainage and water are available.             EER:  tbc


TENURE:  Freehold with vacant possession upon completion of the purchase.


LOCAL AUTHORITY:  South Oxfordshire District Council, 135 Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, Milton OX14 4SV.  Tel 01235 422422.  Email [email protected]
