Situated on the lower slopes of Oldfield Park, this beautiful two storey property, which has been in the family since 1901, offers sitting room, dining room, large kitchen, downstairs cloakroom, 3 good sized bedrooms with en-suite to the master and family bathroom. Outside the property benefits from low maintenance gardens and parking to the rear. Call 01225 466525 to register your interest.

Rear garden

Originally constructed from 1901 onwards (John Hallett, the builder, lived initially at No1), the property was first occupied by Frank J.H Stewart (traveller) with G Holloway (engine driver) and W.T Barrett (assistant) as neighbours. Local quarry manager William Allard also lived on the road at No5.
The property was re-occupied in 1947 by Ernest Sandall (french polisher).

Ringwood Road

Tucked away in this quiet corner of Oldfield Park and with west facing gardens backing onto the Linear Park/Two Tunnels cyclepath, this beautiful 1020sqft three bedroom two reception Victorian terrace is superbly placed for level access to Moorland Rd/Oldfield Park station. Lots of potential to expand upwards like many in the road, or expand the already larger than average kitchen into the side return conservatory. Three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Sitting room, dining room, kitchen and conservatory on the ground floor leading out to a 27ft x 16ft rear garden that offers a wonderfully green outlook. Double glazing, gas central heating via Worcester combi and a smattering of period features. No chain. Sole Agents.

Sitting room

Construction began on Ringwood Rd in 1898 but it was not until 1902 that this property was first occupied – by John W Holley (french polisher) with engineer and cabinet maker neighbours. Mr Holley was replaced in 1905 by Frederick J Massey (tailor), whose relations already lived in the road at No3. At that time, No9 was the residence of the Reverend Gulliford, curate of Twerton and a quick straw poll of other occupations of owners shows 13 GWR staff and 6 cloth industry workers.
