North Stoke is a peaceful village with many interesting period properties lying just off the B4009 road from Goring on Thames to Wallingford and uniquely The Main Street is a no through road.
There is an historic church dating from the 13th century which boasts 14th century wall paintings and a Jacobean pulpit. Many of the properties in The Street have 16th or 17th century origins which contribute to the village s heritage and unchanging character all adding to its appeal.
The ancient Ridgeway Path runs through the centre of the village having followed a route along the banks of the Thames from Goring and continues up onto the Chilterns.
The historic town of Wallingford is close by offering excellent shopping and amenities including a Waitrose, and Goring on Thames to the south is only a short drive.
Road and rail communication are excellent with nearby Cholsey and Goring both having mainline stations for services up to London Paddington and now connects with the Elizabeth line at Reading.
On the Northern end of the village is a golf course bordering the river and is part of The Springs Golf Resort which has a Restaurant open to the public as well as Golfers.
Prospect House has a very characterful presence with a strong Georgian influence having whitened rendered elevations under a pitched and gabled slate tile roof.
It s origins are believed to be much earlier and over the centuries the property has evolved with additions being added to now form a superb family home of immense warmth and charm with many interior architectural features adding to its ambience.
To the rear is a most private and attractive mainly lawned garden with planted beds and borders and a variety of interesting trees including a mature Mulberry.
Across the rear of the house is a terrace ideal for alfresco dining and on the South side are two separate period style buildings one being a Studio Home Office with integral Wine Store and a useful Loft Store Room over, and the other a garden store again with separate storage above.
At the front of the house are twin doors into the integral double garage with an internal door to the house.
Services mains water and electricity are connected to the
property. There is private septic tank drainage, and an oil fired
boiler provides central heating and hot water.
