Terlanen is a charming family house 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.
