It is now a wildlife space which once had a manicured lawn but I lost interest after the developer of the town houses in the photo (circa 2006) dug down 2.5 metre beside the property and unfortunately or deliberately exposed the roots of a row of mature trees which then had to be removed. It is still very secluded and sits up above the new development screened by a 2m fence…...a true wildlife garden with potential to develop into two town houses or a substantial single dwelling both with ample off street parking.
Although a comfortable family home, the property has great potential for re-development. Preliminary architect drawings were done for two additional accommodation units behind the property where the garden is. These take into account all the village restrictions and requirements. I am also willing to consider selling the house and yard, retaining the garden area with access from main street.
