Aberdare Avenue, Drayton

We’ll keep a welcome in the hillsides,
We’ll keep a welcome in the vales,
This land you knew will still be singing
When you come home again to… Drayton.

The words of the song made famous by countless Welsh male voice choirs almost fit the scene in Aberdare Avenue, Drayton, as it’s on the slopes of Portsdown Hill, along with Brecon and Merthyr Avenues in Drayton’s Welsh corner – so named because the original builders came from the Principality.
Right now, a warm welcome awaits prospective buyers at a property for sale in Abderdare Avenue through Town and Country Southern estate agents in Havant Road, Drayton.
‘These 1930s homes on the side of Portsdown Hill have always been held in high regard and are indeed a very welcoming place for any family to return to each day,’ explains Colin Shairp, of Town and Country Southern.
‘The house I’m offering right now is a skilfully-extended three-bedroom semi-detached with an interconnecting lounge and dining rooms, and a magnificently-finished kitchen / breakfast room – in fact the extension and improvement works carried out are a credit to the current owners.
‘The first floor has two bedrooms and a large luxury bathroom opening off the landing, where the stairs continue up to the second floor and the new master suite with a shower room and west-facing balcony. The location gives the house excellent views across the rooftops.
‘There’s a huge paved parking area at the front of the house, while the rear garden has a patio outside the breakfast area and a lawn running down between shrub borders to a shed on a raised plinth at the bottom to give an ideal family recreation space.
‘Local shopping amenities, bus routes, recreation grounds, and both Court Lane and Springfield Schools are close by, again adding to the family appeal of this property.’

  • Guide price is £440,000 (EPC Band D).
