VENDOR'S COMMENTS As a first time buyer I was attracted to the high floor with south facing balcony overlooking the Hawth woodland - I have found this to be very relaxing especially in the summer evenings. The other thing that attracted me to the property was the generous size of the rooms and the kitchen. I have enjoyed living in the flat, but am now moving to a larger family property.
