Kenneth Grahame's former home has just come to the market

Dudley Singleton & Daughter in Pangbourne has just launched Church Cottage in which Kenneth Grahame lived for the last 8 years of his life.

Many of the areas in and around the Thames-side village of Pangbourne were of course used by him as settngs for the stories of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Mr Toad in Wind in the Willows.

The Grade II listed house comes with beautiful well-stocked gardens plus the original village lock up/jail in which village drunks would be incarcerated until they sobered up, and a Victorian bothy comprising two insulated rooms with power, light and water and an attached greenhouse.

Accommodation includes hall, 2 reception rooms, study/playroom, garden room, kitchen/breakfast room and 4 bedrooms.

On the market at £1.75m and you can find more details on this wonderful property by clicking here.
