Maidenhatch
A delightful semi-rural location lying only two miles to the south west of Pangbourne, forming part of the glorious undulating West Berkshire countryside between the Kennet and Pang Valleys within the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), providing excellent facilities for riding and leisure pursuits. The nearby prosperous Thameside village of Pangbourne offers an extensive range of local amenites including shops, mainline railway station, commercial and medical facilities. The area is exceptionally well served with a variety of schools including Englefield CofE Primary School, St. Andrews Preparatory School, Pangbourne College and Bradfield College with leisure and tennis complex. The village of Tidmarsh is also nearby and features a number of historic buildings including the thatched Greyhound 13th Century pub, the 12th Century Church of St. Laurence and the Mill House.

The Tower
Forming part of the Maidenhatch Estate is this highly individual Grade II Listed converted water tower. The property has lots of appeal having been sympathetically modernised in more recent years yet retaining many period features. The well-presented accommodation is arranged over three floors with some excellent views to the South East from the second floor. The top floor contains two large cold water storage tanks serving Maidenhatch Estate. One of the tanks has since been de-commissioned and therefore this provides the scope for a fourth bedroom (subject to removal of the spare tank and of course to any necessary consents).
