In our opinion – with good schools nearby and amenities including a number of recreational options – it would best suit a growing family or perhaps a couple downsizing from a larger home. However, as ever, we would thoroughly recommend a viewing, both to appreciate the standard and versatility of the accommodation on offer as well as the convenient location.
