Situated on the first floor of this landmark redevelopment of a beautiful Grade Two listed building in rural Oxfordshire, this apartment in Basildon Court forms part of a vibrant new community at Cholsey Meadows. Although just one mile from the mainline railway station, Cholsey Meadows is set jewel-like in excess of 100 acres of Registered Park and Garden and boasts direct access to a mile-long stretch of the River Thames. The building has been transformed to create a dramatic, spacious, energy efficient, high spec two bedroom apartment with a separate study and lovely views over the cricket pitch, pavilion, river and open countryside beyond. This property is managed by the agents and is available on an unfurnished basis with white goods.
Key features of the development include a 100 acres of open fields, a managed nature reserve and marshland set against a mile of river frontage along the Thames. The cricket pitch and pavilion is home to the local cricket club with a full set of fixtures. Other recreational amenities include allotments for residents use and a children's play area fully equipped for outdoor fun. In addition, the Great Hall, complete with stage, is a focal point for community activities, exercise classes etc.
Cholsey lies approximately three miles to the south west of Wallingford. Historic information records an original tiny Saxon farming community which has developed into the lively commuter village of today. There are excellent parks and an active local community served by ‘The Forty' magazine. Local railway enthusiasts enjoy Cholsey and Wallingford Railway which runs between the two locations and is known locally as The Bunk (because the locomotive twice left the coaches behind and 'did a bunk') and gives its name to the annual Bunkfest in Wallingford, a crowd-pulling celebration of live music and real ale. Agatha Christie, buried at the local church, is undoubtedly the most famous Cholsey inhabitant and aficionados of her work will recognise local landmarks all around.
Today the village is a thriving one and benefits greatly from the mainline railway station offering direct access to London Paddington in approximately 50 minutes and 20 minutes to both Reading and Oxford. Cholsey also has convenient access to both the M4 & M40. The village offers a selection of amenities including a sought-after primary school, a Tesco Express, an excellent butcher, hairdressers and Chinese and Indian restaurants. The centre of Wallingford, a lively and attractive market town with great pubs, restaurants ,independent stores and a large Waitrose, is approximately 3 miles way offering a further selection of amenities.
