A unique architect designed house with a wonderful garden facing the River Thames.

Designed by renowned architects Bicknell and Hamilton in the early 1960s, Jordleys is a unique property constructed in an elegant curved shape, particularly designed to maximise the southerly views and for easy access to the garden. The focus of the design is creating light and airy living space, with large windows taking advantage of the aspect and a skylight within the central hallway bringing in further natural light.

The generous sitting room takes precedence with a unique shape lending itself to multiple seating areas or flexible use. The dining room lies to one side and could also serve as a study. There are three bedrooms, all to the southerly side of the house overlooking the gardens and the master bedroom has a door opening out onto the lawn.

There is also a family bathroom and cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room lies to the front of the house and has a traditional Aga, and a utility room leads off the kitchen. The studio annexe in the garden provides excellent additional accommodation and sits in a private position overlooking the gardens.

This property has 0.63 acres of land.


The property is accessed through a wooden five bar gate over a gravel driveway to the front of the house and there is ample space to park a number of vehicles. A separate outbuilding provides additional storeage. The garden lies to the rear of the property and is mainly laid to lawn with a wonderful south facing aspect across the meadow adjacent to the property and to open countryside beyond.


Jordleys is situated in much sought after Manor Road, in the highly regarded village of Goring. Goring provides a complete range of day-today facilities including a post office, grocery store, butcher, hairdresser, and hardware shop. There is an excellent range of pubs including the renowned Miller of Mansfield Gastro pub. The neighbouring village of Streatley which is accessed via a bridge over the picturesque River Thames, has the newly refurbished Swan Hotel which has leisure facilities available via club membership.


From Pangbourne, proceed out of the village on the Wantage road towards Goring. At the traffic lights in Streatley turn right, passing over the river, into Goring. Manor Road is the first proper lane on the right hand side. Proceed for a short distance and be sure to fork right onto Manor Road at the John Barleycorn public house. Before the road turns into a track, turn right and Jordleys can found to the left of the footpath.
