Tenure: Leasehold

A large modern 2 double bedroom flat in a great location. Just under 1000 sq ft with a 400 sq ft living room/dining area. The flat has 2 bathrooms, a kitchen + utility area, and its own private entrance. Allocated parking space which is worth its weight in gold this close to Bournemouth town centre.

This is a well managed block with the most reasonable maintenance costs that we know of in the vicinity. It also has over £19000 in the reserve fund as at the last accounts. The flat owners are in the middle of negotiation to buy a share of the freehold and the rights for this or a statutory lease extension will be passed to the new owners.

The current owner is relocating to London with his work and is keen to ensure a quick sale.

The allocated parking space is right by the private back door to the flat, where there is also a small patio. In through the back door to the utility/cost and shoe area, where there is plumbing for a washing machine. Up a step to a modern kitchen with wood effect laminate flooring. Fitted appliances include a stainless steel 4 burner gas hob, electric oven and extractor hood. There is space for a tall fridge freezer and a dishwasher. The Halstead combi gas boiler is located in the kitchen. The venetian blinds are included.

Through the kitchen into a huge living room/dining area(roman blinds included) which the owner uses for both as well as his home office. If you want to change that the hall itself is large enough to create an office space. The hall has a Siemens thermostat, a telephone entry system, the consumer unit, the alarm panel, and the front door which leads to a private hall to 2 flats where the meters are, and then through to the communal hall where the post boxes are and the front entrance to the flats. There are 2 visitor spaces at the front of the block and one at the rear. There is a small communal garden at the front.

There are 2 double bedrooms again both with included blinds. And both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom has a large ensuite shower room with glass and chrome shower structure. There is also a main bathroom.

The location is brilliant. It will take you 5 minutes to walk to Bournemouth Town Centre. And on relaxation days, walk through Bournemouth Gardens to the award winning beaches which will only take you 10 minutes. In the other direction it is a 5-10 minute walk to Westbourne and its eclectic mix of shops and eateries, as well as the headquarters of LV.

M&S is your closest food store(5 minutes) and if you forget something there is a mini Co-Op store and cashpoint less than a minute away.

New to the area? Bournemouth has a wonderful mix of independent shops and high street stores(Zara and Primark are just 5 minutes walk away), a vibrant selection of eateries and nightlife plus 1st class entertainment at the Bournemouth International Centre and the Pavilion Theatre.

Still on foot, you can catch the chain ferry to explore the Purbeck Hills and Dorset's Jurassic Coast, key destinations for the cycling and walking community.

And for work, it is less than a minute to the Wessex Way where it is at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network.
