Tenure: Freehold

6 Ward Avenue Built in the 1940's the house was subject to extensive modernisation and extension around 8 years ago in which time new electrical, plumbing and heating systems were installed. A sympathetic refurbishment which included fitting new oak doors throughout (with glass panels on the ground floor). The majority of windows were also replaced with aluminium framed double glazed units and the roof replaced. Situated in an elevated position with sea glimpses from the kitchen and ground floor reception room as well as all bedrooms.
