The house is set over three floors with many original features such as wooden window shutters.
The property is bright and spacious offering ample living space plus there are large original windows that let in a wealth of natural light.
Jacquie Campbell, a housing professional, and her husband Neal, have lived in a two-bedroom maisonette on De Beauvoir Road since August 2013. Their son, Oliver, also lived with them at first, when he wasn’t away studying at university, but now lives with friends nearby.
“Previously we were living just a few streets south in a smart modern flat overlooking the canal. It was a lovely flat, but it wasn’t really me,” explains Jacquie. “We’ve always lived in period properties and I really couldn’t bear being without a garden. From the moment we moved in, I felt much more at home here.”
Jacquie originally heard about The Benyon Estate through contacts who were happy tenants. “I work in housing so am well aware of the difference between a good landlord and a bad one. When I heard about Benyon properties, I was intrigued to find out more.” She approached The Benyon Estate to see if anything was available; there was just one property which was about to undergo a refurbishment. “When I first saw it, it was a building site. But I took it straight away on the strength of the position and the garden. What we didn’t know then was that the quality of the finished refurbishment would be so high. And the support we get from the estate is second to none.”
