Property location

The property is situated on the south side of Breiwick Road approximately midway between the junctions with Knab Road to the east and Ronald Street to the west. Approaching from the Knab Road end, the property is the second last house on the left before the park.

As already noted, the property is within walking distance of Commercial Street and town centre amenities, a short walk to the end of the road and down Knab Road taking you to Church Road and beyond to the small boat harbour area. There are also pleasant walks around The Knab behind the house where there is a small nine hole pitch & putt golf course.

Again thank you for your assistance so far, I couldn’t have asked for better giving the country wide situation so I’m very grateful for works done so far and the speed at which it has happened.
