The cafes throng with novelists brushing up their manuscripts, with babyccino quaffing tots, with suits and hipsters alike, while weekends see farmers and antiques markets drawing crowds from all across town. And it’s here that you’ll find Windsor Road, a classy family home filled with sunshine and laughter. Set across four floors, its rooms are delightfully spacious, mingling Victorian detailing with playful art and chunky oak furniture. There’s just something happy about Windsor Road, and we know you’ll feel it too.
