Owner's Comments

"The flat ticked all the boxes when I first viewed it. Big rooms, wide windows, lots of light, original parquet flooring and a garage was a bonus"

"We like the location as The Common is within walking distance and we often visit The Cowherds pub. A variety of local shops including a Sainsbury convenience store are within walking distance. The bus stops right outside on The Avenue and serves all parts of the city"
