Property Description
Elm Cottage is a valuably unlisted village house of immense charm and character, part 17th Century with some later major additions situated in one of the most sought-after private roads within the heart of Pangbourne village giving easy access to the station, all the shops, cafes and pubs/restaurants and the river.

The house has been designed to maximise the outlook over the stunning gardens and grounds and benefits from a large entrance hall with galleried landing and three reception rooms: a stunning drawing room featuring a log fire, a family room/games room with conservatory/study which leads out onto the terrace and dining room with beamed high ceiling and feature open fire place. The ground floor further offers a kitchen, utility room with plenty of storage, a fifth bedroom which could also be used as another reception room and bathroom.

On the first floor there is a beamed master suite with en suite bathroom, a second bedroom with dressing room and two further bedrooms as well as the family bathroom.

Outside, a block paved drive provides plenty of parking in front of the double garage. The rear gardens wrap around the house and are completely private with a well-planned vegetable and cut flower garden which has been created and tendered to with immense devotion and care over the years. There are several pathways running around the garden and terraces of beautifully maintained flower beds giving colour in every season, given the house is only a few minutes’ walk from the village it would be difficult to find its equal.

NB: Please note that solar panels have been fitted to the garage roof which could supply electricity and a separate heat exchange panel which could supply hot water.
