WHAT THE OWNERS SAY:
Our family has lived in 226a Freshfield Road for 21 years and we have had a wonderful life, we have had many celebrations, parties and very importantly we have excellent neighbours. In all our years in Freshfield Road, only two had moved out of the area.
The property didn’t start life as it is now it was a self-sufficient smallholding with chicken-runs, pig pens, fruit trees and an expansive vegetable patch.
Whilst the property has been developed there is still plenty of scope to grow your own veg and maybe keep some small animals.
We will all be sad to leave the property but it is now the right time for us to downsize and let another family enjoy the large gardens with a very spacious house with the included opportunity to generate an income from the studio/summer house.
