Full description

A fabulous opportunity to purchase a spacious and well kept first floor 'retirement' apartment which forms part of a grade II listed converted brewery. The building and associated house was converted into a range of individually designed one and two bedroom apartments in about 1987 and this particular apartment has been home to our seller for the last eighteen years. The complex is situated on the edge of town on the fringe of wonderful countryside, on a bus route into Gillingham and would ideally suit an active over 55 or potentially serving as a UK base during one's leisure years. An internal inspection is an absolute must to fully appreciate the size and layout this lovely home offers. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

In brief, the accommodation consists of entrance hall with entry phone and generous sized storage cupboard, a large combined sitting and dining room which enjoys a dual aspect with views of the nearby fields and a feature fireplace, kitchen with arched window boasting a rural view, fitted with ample units benefiting from corner carousels and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher. Both the bedrooms are of a double size and have fitted wardrobes included. In addition, there is the shower room. Both the kitchen and shower room benefit from instant hot water. The apartment is heated via economy 7 electric heating and has secondary glazing to those windows which are not Upvc double glazed. Outside, there is a communal garden with drying area and nineteen parking spaces available for use of the complex which is just twenty one units plus additional parking close by. We believe that the lease was created in 1987 with a term of 100 years and that the flat owners own the freehold.

There is a monthly charge of £100 which can be paid quarterly (£300) or by standing order per month. This includes the sinking fund.
