Description

Forli, 37 Alexandra Road has a rich and fascinating history having once been home to Edward Elgar. Elgar lived at this spectacular property from 1891 until 1899. During his time living in the property it inspired the composing of 'Serenade for Strings, 'The Enigma Variations' and 'Chanson De Matin' to name but a few.

Elgar chose to name the property 'Forli' after a trip to Italy during which he was inspired by his favourite artist the Renaissance painter Melozzo da Forlì.

The property is accessed via an un-adopted lane which leads to a block paved driveway providing off road parking for two vehicles. The foregarden is laid to lawn with hedge borders and interspersed with trees. A paved pathway leads around the side of the property to the rear garden and also leads to
