We have lived here for 34 years, and now it's time for pastures new and to be nearer the children and family. It has been a wonderful family home, the children have grown up here, where the cul-de-sac provided a safe place for them to play when they were young. Superb schools in the village and great location to be able to get to London, Birmingham and Coventry. I've always loved the community spirit in the cul-de-sac and the unobstructed views from the front and the private garden at the back. I wil lmiss this home and the neighbours greatly.
