Terlanen is a light and spacious family house which is well laid out with generously proportioned living space. The downstairs reception rooms are arranged off the sizeable hallway with the sitting room benefiting from a woodburner and two sets of sliding doors on the corner leading out onto the terrace. The large kitchen/breakfast room is a bright room with smart handmade painted cabinetry and wooden worktops. It also boasts a double range oven with 6 ring gas hob and double Butler's sink, and there are French doors leading out onto the terrace at the back.
From the hall, stairs lead up to a galleried landing on the first floor, which is bright and spacious. The master bedroom is well appointed with a large walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room, and affords lovely elevated views over the countryside. There is also a large guest bedroom with en suite, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor.

Terlanen is situated on Bethesda Street, a short stroll from the village hall, recreation ground and public tennis courts. The sizeable village hall regularly hosts various community clubs and activities such as a playgroup, dance classes, charity events, and a wonderful monthly farmers market. The highly regarded village primary school and preschool is less than a ten minute walk from the house and the village also boasts the excellent Red Lion public house. The Thameside village of Pangbourne is just 3 miles away and provides an excellent range of local shops and services, including an award winning butcher and specialist cheese shop and delicatessen. There is also a main line rail link to London Paddington within the hour. The more comprehensive amenities of Reading are approximately 9 miles away.
The M4 (J12) is approximately 7 miles away and provides excellent vehicular access to London, its airports and the motorway network.
The area is well served by a good range of schooling and recreational facilities for all requirements, and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walks and rides.

The property is accessed through a wooden five-bar gate on to a gravel drive with parking for several cars. In addition there is an attached double garage featuring up-and-over doors. A wide area of lawn runs down one side of the house leading to the main garden at the rear. This is mainly laid to lawn with a wide terrace, accessed from the sitting room and kitchen, and this has a lovely pergola with a mature double blooming wisteria climbing over it. Just beyond the terrace is the swimming pool which conveniently has a sundeck on one side and another seating area on the other, and is fitted with a safety cover. The gardens are totally enclosed and continue beyond the pool to a post and rail fence with some hedging and from here there are wonderful views over the fields and countryside beyond. There is a long mixed hedge running parallel with the western boundary and behind this are some raised vegetable beds and fruit trees.
