We mentioned the garden, but as you might expect, Span also focused its attention on the communal aspect of its developments, not least when it comes to the green spaces around. As you can see from some of the photos, the setting is a selling point in itself.

Some work has been done to update and modernise the house over the years, but the house does look in need of some renovation or further updating. A retro/modern interior to suit the 1960s modernist era perhaps? That’s pretty common in most of the Span offerings we see these days.
