Our Sellers Say…
'We have enjoyed living in Maple Road as a family for 25 years. Our children grew up in the area. Everything you need is close at hand. The neighbourhood is friendly with the Health Centre, supermarkets, cafes, shops and restaurants, and the wonderful Horfield Common with its all year round cafe, children's play area, toddler group, free tennis courts and its thriving Ardagh Community Trust (ACT) (www.theardagh.com). Their recently acquired 35 year lease from the Council will help consolidate and expand new community projects. We are moving to be closer to our grandchildren.'
The house is currently rated as a 'D' for energy efficiency and environmental impact according to the latest EPC. The estimated running costs for heating, lighting and hot water are around £1021 for the year. However, the current owners have recently increased the loft insulation significantly so we are awaiting a new EPC which should indicate a more energy efficient home.
