Architect designed home in sought after location


Wellesley Avenue South is an attractive residential area, just two miles east of the city centre and approximately one and a half miles from the railway station. At the end of the avenue is an entrance to Lion Wood which is a wooded area, ideal for dog walking. There are local schools in the primary and middle sectors close by.


172 Wellesley Avenue South is an attractive small family home, architect designed by the late owner, Mr Harold John Barber, and was constructed in 1952 of brick construction under a tiled roof.

Built into the hillside, the property has a part-underground garage with an individual two storey house above and an attractive terrace garden.

The property has been well maintained in good decorative order however, it would be fair to say that it would now benefit from some updating and improvements. A new boiler was installed in 2007 and although the date is unknown, the windows have been replaced in double-glazing. Around 2010 the property had cavity wall insulation installed.

The house is approached via a paved driveway which leads to the partially underground single garage with workshop area, power and lighting. Attractive sloped lawned gardens lead away at either side of the drive with curved steps leading to the front porch and entrance. There is access via both sides of the house which lead to the attractive terrace rear garden, again with paved areas, winding pathways, lawned areas and a wealth of mature shrubs, plants and trees. At the very top of the garden, there is a former vegetable garden which is currently laid to lawn. The garden offers a good degree of maturity. The gardens in all extend to 0.134 of an acre (est).
