18 Alderdale Crescent is an attractive, extended, 4 bedroom, detached family home requiring some modernisation, being conveniently situated in this highly desirable residential area and benefitting from no upward chain.
Driving into Alderdale Crescent almost 20 years ago to view our home-to-be for the first time, I was struck by how wide the road seemed, how the houses were set back with lots of space, also how very peaceful the road was. I still have this feeling even now.
As soon as we stepped into the lounge and saw the view straight through the dining room and conservatory into the beautiful back garden, we knew immediately that this would be a perfect home in which we could raise our family. The house became our home just as we became a family of four. It seemed to tick every box we had been searching for. A well designed 4 bedroomed detached with good local schools, home office with cable broadband, large kitchen, long dining room, no direct sun into the north facing lounge, which is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter.
It has a secure well established 100' garden of two halves, the sociable but part shaded south facing top end, with its playhouse and garden bench area (The trees make a beautiful backdrop and sunshade in the summer) and the fully shaded woodland area, originally part of the old Hampton Coppice, with its full canopy of Oak and Hawthorn being the site of almost every family BBQ.
Having chosen the area for it's good schools, The excellent local junior school at the bottom of the garden served both children well with memories of Sports days and Christmas plays, and the fact they were all only a short walk from the house. We were even more delighted that our son and daughter didn't have to cross a single road on their walk to and from Junior school, a great comfort for when they were old enough to walk there with friends. The other side of the school is the park, great for learning to ride a bike away from the roads! Dog friendly and walker safe, it is a bonus we hadn't expected. At the far end of the park The Grand Union Canal provides a lovely long walk out to the south.
Proximity to airports, railways and motorways were important to my husband at that time. Being 90 minutes by car/train from most UK big cities, or, 90 minutes by air from most European cities, it cut his business travel time to a minimum.
As the Crescent isn't a through road the traffic is light and mostly parcel deliveries or visitors. Now empty nesters its time for another family to make its mark on the place, there is scope to extend and improve but the essence of a family home remains its main appeal.
