Character rich lifestyle in leafy cul-de-sac
Behind its picturesque facade of classic character, this freestanding brick home is a well preserved period residence with a refined sense of history. ‘Manafield’ c1909 is full of original charm and showcases a generous interior layout with fresh, bright living spaces and lots of scope for modern improvements or redesign.

We are sad to go, but happy to have moved. Welcome home, Michael!
It looks huge when empty, but we have managed to fill it up nicely. Thank heavens for unpackers. Jackie and Manka were wonderful.
Majic is coping well. For some time he looked like he was saying 'can we go home now?' He has settled in reasonably well, especially as he gets to go to Camperdown Park in the evening as well as the morning, and he is constantly being patted and cooed over. 'Ooh, he is sooooo keeeeeee yooooooot! Can I pat him?'
And now we are leaving it. When we get back, our housesitter Clare will have lived in it longer than we have!
