27 Northcote Road, New Malden

We bought 27 Northcte Road in Atumn of 1967, and owned it for about 3 years. It got us started on the "property ladder". It cost £4000, when researching this page in 2022, I see that it has just sold for £550,000

The huse had 2 small bedrooms upstairs, and a bthroom that could only be accessed from one of them. Downstairs there was a front sitting room, a dining room and a kitchen

We moved in with noting but a bed and a cabin trunk (which served as a seat when covered in fabric. We hired a big orbital sander and danded, then varnished the wooden floors. Gradually we bought bits of furniture from our salaries

We sold New Malden in 1970 after 3 years, and bought a new house in Woking - Horsell Park.
