"My partner, daughter and I have all really enjoyed living at 2 The School House for the past 7 years. It is in an incredibly convenient location to the town centre and local parks and is also in the catchment area for excellent schools. The (building has) friendly neighbours and a great sense of neighbourly spirit. Calverley Street is a quiet street and so we were rarely disturbed at night. The flat was large enough for the 3 of us to enjoy family time as well as time to ourselves and because the flat had ample storage, we never felt claustrophobic . The flat is also perfect for those without children particularly for entertaining friends in the large open plan living space and patio garden."Leasehold Details
