Vendor Interview - 'Wed had our eye on Westfield Road for quite a while because not only is it one of the most sought after addresses in the area, but its also extremely close to our place of business, says the owner. When this house came up for sale it had been split into eleven self-contained apartments, so it was most definitely in need of a lot of renovation work, but we could see that once converted back into one wonderfully large family home it would give us everything we had been searching for. It took a lot of time and effort to restore the house to its former glory, particularly as we wanted to do it in a very sympathetic manner so as not to strip it of its wonderful character and charm, but we got there in the end and were extremely proud of what we have achieved; its now the lovely big family home that it was always meant to be. Each of the rooms are generously proportioned and theres lots of space to entertain friends and family. We have rooms in which we can all gather together, but there are also spaces to retreat to for a little peace and quiet. Weve all been extremely happy here. The main lounge has patio doors that open onto our lovely big terrace, continues the owner, and from there steps lead down onto the garden, which extends to around a quarter of an acre. We have a huge open lawn and a landscape gardener designed the borders, so they provide colour and interest all year round. Its a very attractive and private space, and considering were just a stones throw from the city centre its also incredibly peaceful. The garden is a feature of the property that weve all thoroughly enjoyed. The house is well screened to the front by huge conifers, says the owner, and theres nothing but greenery to the back of the property, so we enjoy a really good degree of privacy. In fact, when you sit out in the garden you could be forgiven for thinking youre in the middle of the countryside. * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
