A handsome and unusually spacious late Victorian semi-detached family house situated on a no-through-road with gardens backing onto the Thames-side meadows with direct access to the meadows to the rear and benefits from vehicular access into the rear garden with off road parking if required.

The property has undergone extensive refurbishment and modernisation over recent years and there is an excellent flow of accommodation. The rear gardens gain the benefit of the westerly sun, useful for summer dining. 7 Thames Avenue is in excellent order throughout, offering superb family accommodation.

The property offers enormous potential � the kitchen could easily be extended to the side, the master bedroom is a very large room and an en-suite shower/bathroom could easily be fitted and still leave a very good sized bedroom, the drainage and services are to the front making this addition relatively easy (subject to the necessary planning permission/ building regulations). Another option is to add a bathroom or shower room over the porch accessed from the landing, this option has been successfully installed by a neighbouring property (subject to pp).

Thames Avenue is one of the most desirable of the Victorian residential roads to be found within the heart of Pangbourne. Within walking distance across the rear to the River Thames, which has a public slipway directly onto the Thames for the boating enthusiast.

It is also easy walking distance through the end of Thames Avenue to Pangbourne recreation ground with a children`s play area and cricket and football clubs and access to a footpath giving delightful walks along the River Thames.
