Early Trengrove & Marshall designs circa 1950s are far and few between and made even more scarce since February 2011. This is an almost original example in a striking block of four flats right on the edge of Merivale Village. Built in his then ‘signature’ unpainted concrete block, this is the very back unit, upstairs, right away from the road and bathed in all day sun. Warm and cosy there is much to appeal to Trengrove and Marshalls aficionados here! The kitchen is fairly original with open shelving. There is exposed timber work and balconies off both the living and the master bedroom. The block is set in a pretty garden and the outlook from upstairs over long established trees and shrubs is picturesque. As an extra perk there is a good sized single lock-up garage that goes with this unit. This is a wonderful opportunity to buy an incomparable property in a magnificent location at a truly affordable entry level. Our serious sellers have been the landlords here for more than 25 years and they are committed to pass this little gem to another!
