The local bus service and main line station for connections to Reading and London (Paddington) are easily accessible with a good range of neighbourhood shopping in nearby Pangbourne and Tilehurst. The surrounding area provides a wide range of both riverside and country walks and there is a good selection of both state and private schools within the vicinity.
10 Farm Close
A semi-detached house constructed in the early 1970s and more recently has undergone a single storey extension to the rear, as well as numerous other improvements including replacement double glazed windows and doors. The property forms part of a small close, of similar style properties arranged around a small green with various in-set trees. No 10 enjoys a particularly favourable position as it is tucked away in the top left hand corner, resulting in a larger than average plot providing further scope for extension/enhancement, subject of course to the usual permissions (there is in fact planning permission currently in place for a two storey side extension).
