The AreaAston Tirrold
Located at the foot of the Berkshire Downs with the Ridgeway National Trail and fabulous walks ‘from your back door’, Aston Tirrold is widely regarded as one of the very best villages in South Oxfordshire. It is a pretty village of mostly period architecture with significant houses, renowned gastro pub, village hall, two churches, excellent car garage and cricket club. Aston Tirrold has a thriving community and wonderful social scene, while also being valuably peaceful – its lanes are quiet as it is not a cut-through for traffic. For families with children, there is a wide choice of excellent local schools, both independent and state. Ideally located 5 miles from Didcot Parkway station (regular trains to London Paddington from 37 minutes) and with easy access to the A34, M4 and M40 motorways, this village is both idyllic and practical. Local shops, restaurants and cafes can be found close by in the attractive market town of Wallingford and the twin villages of Goring and Streatley, which sit on the banks of the River Thames.
Crossways, Aston TirroldAbout this home
Located in a picturesque and central position on a quiet lane within the highly sought-after village of Aston Tirrold, Crossways is a beautiful Georgian, Grade II Listed family house. With origins dating from the 17th Century, the property has undergone significant improvements in recent years – the mix between original period features and contemporary, stylish living is remarkable. Original features and high ceilings are enhanced with modern touches, a highlight being the large open plan kitchen and Malbrook orangery. The house is presented to a high standard, complemented by an elegantly timeless design aesthetic. There are five good bedrooms including a large master suite. Crossways sits in just under one acre of beautiful gardens which are not overlooked. It is rare to find such a large expanse of garden that is both private and useable within a village setting. There is a large terrace area that connects the bi-folding doors in the kitchen to the heated swimming pool, which is in excellent condition and heated with an air source heat pump. Additionally, there is a well-equipped period home office building (with full-fibre ultra-fast broad band), double garage, off-road parking for five cars in two driveways, a flower cutting garden and a treehouse. This is an exceptional village house in great condition – ideal for the next owners to simply move in.
WHAT THE CURRENT OWNERS LOVE ABOUT LIVING HERE
“How lucky I was to find Aston Tirrold! It’s an uncommonly peaceful village as there’s no reason to drive through it; it’s full of period houses; surrounded by great countryside; easy to get to Oxford, Henley and London – and I’ve made genuinely lovely friends.
Crossways as a family home ticks all my boxes: it’s very pretty, very quiet, has a lovely calm feel to it, surprisingly high ceilings, a large garden for a village house, a fabulous pool that is like being in the South of France and a light-filled studio that I can run my interior design business from.
It is impossible to say whether I love the village or the house more – the two combined make the ultimate country home for me.”
