Why you’ll like it:

There are a wonderful variety of architectural styles in the properties which lie in this tree lined road, leading down to the sea, and this one bedroom apartment is in a noted purpose built block, designed 1947 by Denman & Son for the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution. It sits in manicured grounds and has a red brick facade with bow windows, and you approach through secure key fob entry doors to the right. The building has undergone a major refurbishment in recent years, and internally there are wide, well lit hallways, with plush carpets underfoot, and there’s a comfortable and tranquil lounge, with garden views on the ground floor that you pass en route to the lift. This takes you to the fourth floor where your door is clearly marked down the corridor on the right.

Inside you are welcomed into a wide entrance hall with hooks for coats and space for a sideboard. From here you can see straight through into the kitchen ahead which has a western wall that is almost entirely glazed, with a door leading out to a semi circular balcony from which there are lovely city views. The kitchen units run along two walls, and are cream in a Shaker style, and below the pale granite effect surfaces there’s space and plumbing for a washing machine as well as a slimline dishwasher. There’s also space for a tall fridge freezer and the oven is conveniently placed in tower for ease.

The bathroom is next door to the right and is as immaculate as the kitchen with a laminate wood floor in warm tones to complement the white suite, and tall shower which has been fitted with a handrail for extra stability.

The living room is to the left from the hall, and is a generous size with space for a dining table as well as sofas and chairs. It is a warm and homely room with calico cream walls and a dusky coral carpet which flows from here into the bedroom for continuity. The westerly window has a deep sill for ornaments, and this sheds a lovely light into the room in the afternoon and evening. The bedroom is next door and shares the same restful palette and orientation as the lounge. It has a wall of built in wardrobes in light wood, which also include a chest of drawers, and there’s ample space for a large double bed and side tables, plus room to manoeuvre around them. Every room has an alarm cord, so should you require any assistance, help can be at hand in an instant.

The flat is finished to a high standard, so you can move straight in, and start enjoying the benefits of living in a luxury apartment in a fantastic and vibrant location.

Bear in mind:

This apartment doesn’t come with a parking space, but there are several bus stops at the bottom of the road which take you through the city and beyond should you chose to be car free.
