Originally constructed in 1902 as a water tower for the neighbouring property, Abbotts Tower has been repurposed and enhanced to offer a talking-point, contemporary home with unique architecture and stylish interiors. A generous hallway leads through to the reception areas which have an open ambience and are filled with natural light. This sociable setting comprises a sitting area, adjoined by a circular dining room, with glazed double doors opening into a bright garden room where sunlight floods inside through a lantern skylight and access to a garden terrace can be enjoyed. Fitted with sleek, white cabinetry, the kitchen has wood worksurfaces and attractive tiled upstands, with an east-facing window affording bright morning light into the room.
The first floor offers one bedroom set within the circular tower with elevated views and a step-level change from a dressing area and walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom has access to eaves storage. A well-appointed, modern family bathroom is situated between the two rooms. A spiral stairway from the rear boot room leads up to an office at the top level of the tower accommodation and provides an optional third bedroom, if required. Supplemental accommodation is provided in an outbuilding which comprises a studio with kitchen area and shower room.
In an idyllic rural setting just to the east of Goring on Thames, Abbots Tower is situated on the northern fringes of Goring Heath in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The neighbouring village of Woodcote offers a good selection of day-to-day amenities including a supermarket, independent shops, a health centre, two public houses and a garden centre, whilst Pangbourne to the south, provides a more comprehensive range of facilities. Communication links are well-provided with access to the A34 and the M4 providing routes to the major towns and the motorway network.

A series of paved terraces adjoin the rear and side of the home offering opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation whilst enjoying the south and easterly aspects. Steps lead down to an area of lawn which is framed by well-stocked borders and to a decorative paved circle which provides an additional spot for a garden seat. Beyond the immediate garden, a grassed area meanders through mature trees to a tranquil section of the grounds, where there is a summerhouse and a glorious outlook over the surrounding countryside. The property is approached via a gravelled driveway which provides parking for several cars.
