Comparing photos 3 years ago to todays reinvention confirms our suspicion that this property has been a labour of love. The rear has been transformed from a badly placed original kitchen, bathroom and bedroom to a free flowing 35m living area adjoining the kitchen and outdoor dining area. The rear was bright even though not North facing due to no structures blocking the light. The garden could benefit from privacy hedges between neighbours , ironically this did contribute to a feeling of space. Special note needs to be made to the quality of the renovation as it was not superficial with every surface being touched. Bathrooms and kitchen are of high quality with practical designs and there are high ceilings and period features.
Location is central to all Junctions, parks, shops, transport and schools, hence the desirability of this street increasing over the years.
Overall, a solid, practical home in a convenient location. The property makes great use of the land area but could benefit from more space with a parents retreat and large bedroom upstairs freeing up living space downstairs. Having just finished a quality renovation, buyers would be reticent to start such a large renovation immediately so the property would suit a young family with the potential to add to the property (STCA) in later years as the family grows up.
