Manchester Durman is delighted to bring to market this chain free 3 bedroom period terraced property which has been enjoyed by the vendor's family since 1965. Of early twentieth century design, it has the high ceilings and generously proportioned rooms you would expect and has many original period features including stained glass, parquet flooring, and even a larder. Most of the properties on this residential road were given individual names and this was called 'Nerbudda'. This attractive property has 2 large and bright reception rooms with a conservatory at the back overlooking the lovely rear garden. The level rear garden is very pretty and stocked with traditional flowers and shrubs including camellias, forget-me-nots, peonies, and a magnolia tree.

There is access to the loft which is currently used for storage but can be converted subject to the relevant local consents. Requires modernisation throughout. Parking is available on street and there is unrestricted parking in Elmgrove Road and Brockenhurst Road.
