Home for 30 years
The current owners have lived in the house for more than 30 years, first moving in as parents to a three-year-old and five-year-old. They share: “The house is ideal for a family and having just two floors made life easy both with young children and ageing parents staying. The people in Rugby Road are friendly and sociable and we have made longstanding friends.”
Drew Taylor, Sales Manager at Mishon Mackay, also shared: “This area is hugely desirable with families due to the fantastic local schools nearby. There is a strong sense of community here and this property offers versatile living to create a perfect family home.”
