That’s because pretty much all of the houses we have featured in this particular location tend to be popular and sought after. Presumably because of the location, the architecture and we would guess, the idea of living near like-minded souls.

This townhouse is part of a terrace of similar builds dating back to the mid-1960s, found on a ‘quiet close’ and positioned towards the end of the terrace, furthest away from the road. So presumably a little quieter.

The design is typical of the era, with a layout also very much of that era too. The main living space is on the first floor, which is a double-aspect room with open kitchen and sitting room. The agent also flags up the ‘impressive’ windows at the front and back that run the full width of the house.

You get three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the top floor. The integrated garage and store room on the ground floor have been converted into further living space and can be used as either a separate sitting room or guest bedroom with en-suite wet room. Part of the original garage is still there if you need some extra storage. And let’s be honest, we all do.

Admittedly the furnishings and fittings are not part of any deal, but the finish here is well worth talking about too. Slightly retro, a little quirky and overall, very eye-catching.

Outside is a private rear garden that extends into a rather lovely communal woodland, which is shared by the residents of Tarleton Gardens and is a huge bonus selling point. At the front is space for a single car.
