Overview

An incredible opportunity to restore and revive a beautiful and almost untouched period home on the banks of the River Thames in Pangbourne. Listed Grade II, this detached Victorian home represents a slice of Pangbourne history - one of the famous Seven Deadly Sins situated along Shooters Hill. Purportedly constructed by the store magnate DH Evans in 1896, this substantial detached home benefits from river frontage and mooring rights as well as being located a short walk from the village centre, shops and railway station.

Virtually all of the magnificent original features are retained and the principal rooms are orientated to take full advantage of the scenic river views. Highlights include the magnificent spacious reception hall with fireplace and bay window, a living room, and dining room - both with original fireplaces, and a beautiful sweeping staircase with a skylight on the landing. A kitchen, utility, and cloakroom also on the ground floor. Upstairs, five bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The property requires complete renovation throughout, but offers amazing scope to create a wonderful home.

Outside

There is driveway parking and a double garage with steps lead up to the front garden which is of a good size. There is scope to remodel this area to create more parking. Behind the property is a steep and very wide bank, overgrown that would benefit from clearing. At the top of the hill is an additional area of garden.

River frontage

Opposite the property is a wide expanse of direct river frontage with mooring rights. Currently overgrown, however once cleared the fantastic river views will be revealed.
