Located in a highly sought after tree lined road in Southampton's most prestigious residential area, this spacious detached property offers accommodation ideally suited to the growing family.

Owner's Comments

"We love the tree lined road and the attractive outlook we have from all windows. We enjoy drinks on the raised terrace and often sit out on the balcony well into the evening during the summer"

"When we first moved in we found the accommodation ideal for our young growing family. Now the property is too big for us but we will take away many happy memories. The location is so accessible for commuting to local towns and cities as well as catching the train to Waterloo"

Introduction
