Nightingales occupies a wonderful rural setting and sit well within its plot whilst overlooking gardens and land of around 4.35 acres. The majority of it is laid to lawn and dotted with mature trees and provide lovely views from the rear of the house. The land would also suit those who keep horses, as some of it could fenced off as paddock land for grazing. The property is approached via a long gravel driveway which provides excellent privacy, and culminates in a larger area in front of the house which provides parking for several vehicles. Established planting to the front of the house along with heritage green painted window frames and front door add extra appeal. A patio area set away from the house is the ideal spot for al fresco relaxation, and dining, with far reaching views over its own land and neighbouring farmland. The double garage is separate from the house and to the side. It has stairs leading to the first floor which is currently used for storeage, but could be converted to further accommodation, subject to the usual consents. Applicants are advised to make their own enquiries regarding this with West Berkshire Council.


Situated off Mill Lane which which meets the main road running through Tidmarsh, the property enjoys a semi-rural position close to the larger village of Pangbourne which benefits from an excellent range of shops including a small supermarket, artisan baker, award winning butchers and cheese shop, as well as pubs, cafes, post office and schools, and mainline station with an excellent service to London Paddington in under an hour. The large town of Reading is also located just a few miles away and provides a wide range of shopping, dining, cultural and leisure options as well as a fast train service to London, Paddington. With the arrival of Crossrail in Reading in the next year or so, London Waterloo and the City will also be easily reached. The M4 can be easily accessed from the property, providing excellent road connections. Well-regarded educational facilities in the local area include the 'Outstanding' Whitchurch Primary School, as well as independents St. Andrew's School and Bradfield College, both featured in The Good Schools Guide. The property also benefits from a location sandwiched between the North Wessex Downs and the Chiltern Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


From Pangbourne, head south-west on High Street (A239), then at the roundabout take the first exit onto Church Road (A340). Continue to follow the A340 for 1.1 mile into Tidmarsh before turning left onto Mill Lane at the side of The Greyhound pub and Nightingales will be found after about half a mile on the right handside, immediately after a speed sign. Take the turning onto the tarmac drive for a property called Moor Copse and immediately divert onto the right hand gravel drive which belongs to Nightingales
