Pangbourne Lodge has frequently been referred to over the years as the `jewel in the crown` of this pretty and exclusive period Thameside village. Constructed in the early 1700s, it is a fine example of the Georgian period architecture. As would be expected of this wonderful period of English architecture, the rooms are elegant, well proportioned with high ceilings and large sash windows, and the traditional entrance hall is stone flagged with a marvellous original staircase winding gracefully to the first floor. The property is substantially constructed of rendered brick under a slate roof, indiscernibly attached at the rear to another property. The property is valuably unlisted, therefore potential for further extension, subject to local authority planning permission, and room if so desired for the erection of a garage.
Pangbourne Lodge is entered from an imposing private drive with electrically operated wrought iron gates securing the access from the drive. The gardens are extremely pretty, very private, and the property is well set back and away from the road, therefore very safe for children and pets. Yet, Pangbourne Lodge is within the heart of the wonderful period village within very easy walking distance of buses, train station, schools, library, wonderful selection of shops, doctors` practice, pubs and fine restaurants.
Easy access is achieved to Reading or Newbury by road or by train. Junction 12 of the M4 at Theale is only five minutes driving distance and Pangbourne station gives commuter access to Oxford, Reading and London Paddington, if so desired. The River Thames and River Pang are also within walking distance. Excellent schools are to hand with Pangbourne College just up the road, Bradfield College and St Andrew`s Preparatory School are within easy driving distance, The Oratory School, Downe House, Cranford House, Moulsford Preparatory School and, of course, walking distance to the village primary school and within the catchment area with school bus for Theale Green School.
