DESCRIPTION: A charming detached house meticulously constructed in a Victorian style some 30 years ago. There is tremendous potential for extension if required subject to local authority planning permission. The property is situated within a peaceful close on high ground. Number 2 Stokes View has an excellent flow of accommodation from a spacious reception hall to the drawing room into the dining room and round into the kitchen. It`s a light, bright house with lots of character and is in excellent order throughout.
Local Facilities: M4 Junction 12 is approximately 5 miles. Within easy walking distance from Pangbourne village centre with its excellent shops, church, pubs, restaurants, health centre, dentist, banks, primary school, library, and station giving a fast train connection to London Paddington for the commuter.

Horse riding stables and livery stables are a short driving distance at Buckhold and Upper Basildon. The large supermarkets and hypermarkets of Waitrose and Sainsbury`s super store are also within easy driving distance.

Tremendous potential : On the left hand and right hand side of the property to increase the size of the property and its accommodation if so desired subject to local authority planning permissions.
