*** NO CHAIN *** NO CHAIN *** NO CHAIN ***


My Mum has loved the property since the day she and my Dad moved in, over 46 years ago. The peaceful neighbourhood perfectly met their needs, with its close proximity to the town centre and local schools, plus easy access to the A66. It s an ideal property for both families and people who are looking for somewhere in which to spend their retirement and there are still many of the original residents living on the estate, which in itself tells a story .
