I love these two houses, the first one is in the London Road, just down from the Police HQ, so wouldn't really be my first choice of places to live, but I just love the house.
This second one is the Lodge House by the gates of Quakers Walk, I think it's privately owned now, but was once part of the old Roundway Park (and subsequently New Park) estate. The location is very quiet, traffic-wise, but is quite a busy pedestrian thoroughfare since the building of the new housing estate off the London Road.
Neither of these houses is on the market, but even if they were, I think they'd be out of our price range. This one is on the market, but again, I think its a bit more than we can afford! Likewise this one.
But can you see a pattern emerging? It has only recently occurred to me that I much prefer houses that are symmetrical in appearance, houses with the front door in the middle and a window on each side just like I used to draw them when I was 5 years old.
Now if only I could find one in our price range!
