• The tremendous potential for extension to the main property and the construction of a new property on the rear garden plot (subject to LAPP)
• Courtlands Hill and Green Lane are two of the most sought-after residential roads in the heart of Pangbourne village
• The frontage to Courtlands Hill is approximately 100ft
• The plot is almost symmetrical with the rear garden frontage to Green Lane approximately the same width

Beale Wildlife Park & Gardens is a couple of miles up the road and is a lovely place for young families with amazing animals, birds, gardens, play parks, a splash pool and miniature train.
