The current vendor comments: “I bought the flat about 41 years ago and my main reason at the time was that it was a brand-new conversion, it had outside space and the location was just brilliant for me. All 8 flats at number 44 and number 46 were re-developed at the same time but I was only really interested in Flat 3 because other than the two garden flats, it was the only one with a private terrace. In the summer I spend a lot of time sitting outside watching the world go by. Marks and Spencer is just at the end of Oakfield Rd, which is really convenient and we’re less than five minutes from The Everyman which I love. Clifton Village and The Downs are also both within easy walking distance.”
Viewing is highly recommended of this perfectly placed property!
