A very attractive semi-detached Victorian house located within the heart of this sought after Thames Side village. Ivy Villa is one of the largest Victorian houses in Thames Avenue constructed on 3 floors and looks straight down the Thames Avenue therefore has an open aspect and to the rear backs onto and overlooks the Pangbourne playing fields and Meadow. The property is in beautiful order throughout and certainly has the �wow` factor. The accommodation is spacious, light and has high ceilings.
Lots of potential to extend the property to the side and rear to incorporate the existing garden room and kitchen/ breakfast room to create a large kitchen/ living room (subject to Local Authority planning permission)
The existing shower room very easily could be made into an en-suite by simply putting in a door in the corridor access on the landing to bedroom 1, if required.
The sitting room is a very large and beautiful reception room extending to some 31 feet in length and originally was two rooms. A steel support was, at great expense, invisibly embedded into the ceiling so that the dividing wall could be removed. This dividing wall could very simply and inexpensively be re-instated creating two rooms again if required, there are still two separate doors giving access and both rooms would benefit from both rooms having beautiful fireplace.
There is plenty of on street parking in Thames Avenue, unlike other centre of the village roads that have had to put in residents` parking provisions . The existing vendor who works very late hours was concerned when they purchased that perhaps parking might be difficult when returning late at night when all other residents have already returned home but there has never been a shortage of parking.
The property has undergone considerable refurbishment of recent time to include � new lighting system to the ground and first floor with area specific zoning and dimmer facility to the sitting room, re-decoration to include beautiful coving to the sitting room/ dining room area. Two fabulous art deco style fireplaces. The original sash windows have been renovated and the runners, where needed, have been repaired and replaced. The master bedroom bay window has been completely replaced with double glazed sash window units Most of the remaining windows are UPVC with new UPVC double patio doors. A new gas boiler was installed in 2010 electrical RCD unit was installed in 2011. Both the shower room and bathroom have been completely replaced to a very high specification.
