Full description

A rare chance to acquire a chain-free, long leasehold ground floor flat with parking, in a convenient location close to town. One double bedroom, beautiful setting, entry phone system, communal courtyard garden, long leasehold, low running costs, no chain. EPC Band C.

Situation - Occupying an open, south-facing site on the northern fringe of the town, with open pasture to the east, Russell Court Gardens offers convenience and tranquility in equal measure. Despite being on the edge of Tavistock, the town centre is just over of a mile from the town centre.

Tavistock is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, and famed for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th century town centre is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held. Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders with the Dartmoor National Park along its eastern edge, making it an extremely popular destination for lovers of the outdoors with walking, riding, cycling and exploring all on the doorstep.

To the west of the town can be found the Tamar Valley along the Devon/Cornwall border, offering further opportunities to discover the region's rich heritage. Plymouth, some 15 miles to the south, offers extensive amenities with the added attraction of its coastal access and the Mayflower Marina which is, naturally, particularly appealing to sailing enthusiasts. The cathedral city of Exeter lies some 40 miles to the northeast, providing transport connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway.

Description - This long leasehold flat would serve as an ideal first-time purchase - having low running costs - and would suit equally well those buyers seeking a low-maintenance property with easy access into the centre of Tavistock, with all of its shopping and recreational facilities. The building was fully redecorated externally approximately 12 months ago and, internally, the apartment is in good condition. It is offered with vacant possession and no onward chain.

Accommodation - The accommodation is clearly show on the floorplan overleaf, being all on the ground floor and accessed firstly through the building's communal lobby and inner hallway. The flat's internal entrance hallway then leads on to the bright and airy sitting room, which features modern USB-charging power points incorporated into the sockets, as well as the shower room and the double bedroom. Entered off the sitting room, the kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall-mounted units and features a ceramic 4-ring hob, stainless steel sink with drainer, integral oven and space for a plumbed appliance.

The fully tiled shower room features a double size enclosure with an electric shower, in addition to a pedestal wash hand basin and low-level WC.
During the current owner's tenure, the immersion tank has been replaced, as has the double glazed window in the bedroom.

Sitting Room - 15'10 x 12'1 (4.83m x 3.68m)
Kitchen - 8'11 x 6'3 (2.72m x 1.91m)
Bedroom - 11' x 8'10 (3.35m x 2.69m)
Shower Room - 6'2 x 5'7 (1.88m x 1.7m)

Outside - Outside, the apartment has the use of Russell Court Gardens' communal courtyard garden which is situated to the rear of the building. There is also an allocated parking space positioned in front of the building, directly outside the apartment.

Services - Mains water, electricity and drainage are all connected to the apartment, with electric heating through night storage heaters on the Economy 7 tariff. Please note the Agents have not inspected or tested these services.

Tenure - The long leasehold interest of the apartment is being offered for sale, with the remainder of a 999-year lease which commenced in 1992. There is no ground rent payable and we understand that an incoming leaseholder will join the management company, effectively taking a 9th share of the freehold of the development.
We understand that the most recent service charge payment was in the region of 550 for the year.

Agent's Notes - 1. We understand that sub-letting of the apartment is prohibited.
2. We also understand that the lawn gardens to the south of the site are for the use of the owners and occupiers of Russell Court only, and not those of Russell Court Gardens who have the use of the communal courtyard.
3. Main gas is available within Russell Court Gardens, subject to enquiry with, and connection by West and West Utilities.

Viewings - Strictly by appointment with the vendor's appointed Agents, Stags.

Directions - From Tavistock town centre, proceed along Drake Road (between the two banks) and continue underneath the viaduct, following the road as it bears to the right and left, after which the entrance to Russell Court will be seen on the right. As you enter the site, follow the road around to the right, passing the archway on your left, where Russell Court Gardens will be seen in front of you.
