Superb views over Weston & Lansdown and a garage make this solid two bedroom two reception Victorian home stand out from the crowd. Tucked away just south of Moorland Road and thus ideal for investment buyers, the house is in fine condition for its age but now needs a little upgrading to reach top spec. First floor bathroom, double glazing, low maintenance rear garden with useful store room, off street parking in addition to a single garage and even scope to loft convert (stp). We’ve already had our surveyor round so we know exactly what work is needed. Offered with no chain. Sole Agents. Viewings start 11th Dec.
We believe Mayfield & Maybrick Rds were named after Thomas May, who established the Victoria Brick and Tile Co near Dartmouth Avenue in 1887. The works was connected to the Somerset and Dorset Railway railway by a siding known as May’s Siding.
Houses in Mayfield Rd were constructed from 1892-3, with 14 built by the end of 1893. The remaining homes were completed by 1894. It must have been a very safe road to live in, with three local policemen as residents. This property was then the home of James Hobbs (carter). By 1902, the property was listed as the residence of Mrs Little (dressmaker and milliner), with neighbours William Snow (GWR porter) and Robert Hampson (engineer). Records in 1912 would seem to indicate that the Hobbs and Little families had been connected, with the occupiers listed as Mrs Little, Abel Hobbs (carter) and William Little (forage contractor).
