WITH A BEAUTIFUL redbrick exterior and a private front garden that’s rich in mature trees and shrubbery, 67 Garville Avenue Upper makes a superb first impression.

The four-bed Victorian property measures 2,200 sq ft over two storeys and boasts many original period features, including grand fireplaces, solid wood flooring, and ornate cornicing and coving. 

The interior is both elegant and charming, with plenty of space to entertain and to unwind. The main reception room is located off the hallway and benefits from ample natural light thanks to two sash windows with shutters, while a magnificent marble fireplace adds a cosy feel.

There’s a great selection of schools and sports clubs nearby, as well as cafes, restaurants and shops, meaning you’ll never be far from whatever you might need.

Considering its stellar location, beautifully decorated interior and idyllic gardens, it’s easy to understand why No 67 has remained in the same family for almost 70 years.
