Far End is a substantial family house which sits well back in its plot offering a high degree of privacy. The original property, which consisted of a garage and accommodation above, was bought by the current owner in the 1970s. It has been designed and extensively extended to its current bespoke specification for the owner to the highly desirable and spacious home it is today. The accommodation and interior are impressive, most notably by the generous proportions of all the rooms. The reception rooms all lead off the imposing entrance hall with its galleried landing on the first floor. The drawing room is triple aspect with views over the lovely gardens. Smart oak panelling makes the dining room an intimate room for entertaining with its two sliding doors. The kitchen breakfast room is well appointed with its central island and granite top, housing a Miele induction hob and extractor above. The cabinetry is cream and the remaining worktops and sinks are made of cream corian. Double doors from the breakfast room lead out on to the terrace at the front.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite leads off one side of the galleried landing, and has an abundance of dressing room space and a large en suite bathroom with twin sinks. Full height glazing and a pretty Juliette balcony offer an elevated view of the gardens. Also on this floor are three further double bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms, a further bedroom which could be used as a study, and a large family bathroom.
Leading out of the utility room there is access via the boot room to the front and back gardens, as well as straight into the triple garage. Within the garage, stairs lead up to the two bedroom annexe which is ideal either as overflow accommodation, a home office or recreation space.

Far End can be found on Riverview Road, a prominent no through road just a short distance from the centre of Pangbourne. This pretty Thameside village has an excellent range of local facilities including a church, primary school, pubs and restaurants, as well as an award winning butcher and an excellent delicatessen cheese shop. There is a main line rail link to London Paddington within the hour, and the more comprehensive amenities of Reading are just 6 miles away (London, Paddington 27 mins).
The M4 (J12) is about 5 miles away and provides excellent access to London, its airports and the motorway network.
The area is well served by a first class range of schooling and recreational facilities for all requirements and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walks and rides.

The property is approached along a brick and gravel driveway, leading up to the front of the house and then continuing round to the garage block. The terraced gardens have been beautifully landscaped with lawn and herbaceous planting and the boundaries have high mature hedging. There is a lovely terrace leading out from the breakfast room to the front. There are also several secluded seating areas within the terracing, ideal for catching the sun, and there is also a secondary terrace leading out from the conservatory at the rear. Beside the car port is the greenhouse and a salad garden.
