Now we're no 'Bargain Hunt' experts, but straight away we can tell a good investment if we see one. Offering 11 apartments housed within a beautiful looking Victorian detached property and ideally located in the town centre is Belmont. We'll be surprised if David Dickinson himself doesn't consider a late bid.
Overview - An opportunity to acquire this substantial four storey, detached, double fronted Victorian town house located in the heart of the popular spa town of Llandrindod Wells. Posing as an ideal investment development, Belmont currently accommodates 11 charming apartments to include 8 one bedroomed and 3 two bedroomed apartments, however this imposing building could also be potentially restored back to a wonderful period detached house subject to all planning permissions and building regulations.
Built circa 1865, Belmont like many buildings in the town centre was once a glamorous and luxurious grand hotel built to accommodate the economic boom due to the proposed 'healing qualities' of the local spring waters attracted thousands of visitors a year. During the 'season' between May and mid-September visitors would take the waters at the pump rooms at the Rock Park and Pump House, entertained by orchestras. Hotels, boarding houses and shops. The building was later separated and Belmont was converted into an apartment block in 1973.
In present day this approx 6400 sq ft building accommodates a number of tenanted occupants within the 11 self-contained apartments, all comprise a kitchen and separate reception room apart from 3 which feature open plan living kitchens. All have a bathroom and a double bedroom with 3 further apartments offering the added bonus of an extra bedroom. Access to all dwellings and four floors are through the communal areas and stairwells. Overall the building which retains many period features has been maintained internally and externally by the current vendor since ownership approximately 27 years ago and benefits from spacious accommodation, gas fired central heating to apartments 1 and 6 with the remainder being electric/has heaters, a private parking area with space for 8 vehicles and far reaching views from upper floors over the town and surrounding countryside. The vendor does a magnificent job in maintaining the building and paints all the external windows, doors, soffits and fascias every 7 years including the external stairwell, the building was also re-roofed in 1990 and later re-pointed as well. Belmont could be an attractive venture for investors with a potential yield of 11% available based on the guide price of £320,000 and rental incomes of £260.00 PCM (£60 PW) for a one bedroom apartment and £303.33 PCM (£70 PW) for a two bed, but as previously mentioned this beautiful building could also be transformed into an impressing, large family home and as a result appeal to a variety of potential buyers.
Approached from the roadside a driveway leads alongside the right of the building to the private parking area. A side entrance door leads into the communal stairwell which features traditional mosaic tiled flooring. The accommodation is spread across four floors with floors two and three offering 3 apartments each, while floors one and four sharing the remainder. Outside a gateway from the roadside, opens to the front courtyard garden. The low maintenance garden is largely paved and gravelled with cast iron fenced and walled borders.
