I once worked with someone who lived on Kesteral Court and not to be too judgemental but she was more than a bit rough. I went to pick her up once and her street had piles of binbags in the middle of the road that I had to weave round and it wasn't bin day.
Hi Saz, we would love a village location but sadly our price range won't stretch to it for a couple of years - looking about the 110K mark. Liking a couple on Rightmove, Harby Close, and Beechcroft Rd but feel paranoid that they must be in rough areas or they wouldn't be so bargainous! Thanks for your help!
Have to say that they aren't in particularly good areas of grantham, how mny bedrooms are you looking for if you don't mind me asking
and does it have to be grantham itself.
my friend brought three bedroom in anwick just outside sleaford for 117,00 last august.
sleaford is quite a nice town and surrounding areas as well
Grantham's not fabulous all in all. I live about 10 miles away, in a neighbouring town, and one thing that strikes me about Granthem is how many pairs of white tracky bottoms you will spot on any given Saturday afternoon.
Must say I'm having doubts as well Desiderata! Thanks for the insights! So no nice areas that anyone can recommend then?! Perhaps we'll rethink and move to Eastern Europe instead where we can live in a mansion!
don't be put off by all the negative remarks, as lincolnshire is a lovely county. i would suggest that if possible you try and come up for a few days and have a drive round the area. also put sleaford in right move and a 10 mile radius, you might strike lucky there as well.
I have just left a message for you on the Grantham/Newark thread!
But just wanted to add, I grew up in Grantham, and there are some lovely areas, and some not so lovely areas. Pretty much like anywhere.
The main areas I would avoid are around Trent Road and New Beacon Road. These are the main council areas, and have their reputations.
The Alma Park estate is lovely (1st/2nd/3rd etc Ave), and the areas off of Barrowby Gate are also nice and quiet. If you see any houses you like, I'll give you an honest opinion about the area! But please don't be put off by all the negative comments.
