Davoli is situated on a peaceful private lane off the Bere Court Road in an area noted for its outstanding country houses. Bere Court Road is probably one of the most sought after semi-rural lanes in the heart of Pangbourne Village.

The property was constructed in the early 1960s by the present owners. It was described in The Berkshire buildings of England by Nikolaus Pevsner as `a very good new house in the new architectural idiom of the 1960, construction.

The property was constructed with loving care with only four other houses having access from the private lane which overlooks very beautiful open pasture land and woodland. This is a strikingly beautiful rural area.

Special features must be the large and very beautiful location. The interesting and innovative architectural design. The vaulted ceilings throughout. The New Zealand teak flooring in the drawing room , the dining room and the reception hall. The large windows giving masses of light to all rooms.
