As a young/middle aged couple looking to buy in the area we have noticed several properties being sold and for sale in siddons road of late. There seems to be a disproportionately greater than normal for sale signs in the street. Is this pure coincidence?

It is a fairly nice area. I live aroundd around the corner in Kemble Road. There are strong community ties in the area mainly focused around th excellent Perrymount schol and a fairly active nieghbourhood watch.

Nice area with nice people.

I had a mate in Siddons Road, a teacher called Tim, and we also did our NCT training here as well. Does this count for the most pointless comment yet or can TT, HJ, Jack, Adam, Pippa or others better this. Don't worry serious readers, we will soon tire of this pathetic drivel.

There is also a Siddons Road in Harringey, N17. Interestingly enough, the nearest station is Tottenham Hale

I've got friends in Siddons Rd - its OK. I guess people might be a bit nervous about the new development just round the corner on what was a church tennis club. I'm sad that's going but only about 3 people ever used it.

The shops at the bottom (er Perry Vale?) are good too. Bakery, hairdressers, etc, all useful...

I live on Siddons Road and am not a bit nervous about the new development! Sad to see an amenity go but the courts were rarely used and not exactly well maintained! It's looked an absolute shambles since I moved to the area 2 years ago and seemed to be used much more by local kids as a gathering spot.

The development has finally seemed to get off the ground - although they seem to be concentrating on the Perry Vale end at the moment. As far as I'm concerned it can only be a good thing for the area instead of having a derelict badly maintained site. On another note - I think the church conversion apartments on South Road are going to be amazing when done - just a pity about the developer's corny tag-line.

But regardless of the developments - I can thoroughly recommend Siddons Road - shops at the bottom of the road are great, it's a relatively quiet road and less than a 10 minute walk to the station (and no, I'm not trying to sell my house!)

Shame about the double parking. It seems that there are always cars double parked, even when there are spaces to park (which is most of the time).

Courts - I've never seen anyone using them - I thought about it a few times, but the conidition was appalling and there were signs to keet out - hardly a way to maximise a local utility. Instead, wander over to Mayo Park and listen to the music from high above. That man has big speakers.

Going back to the original question- what does young/middle aged mean?

As Newman, Jack, Adam and I are the only ones who contribute now no doubt the first three will have a view.
