Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This spacious first floor flat forms part of the attractive development of just 8 apartments in Luccombe Court. The building was constructed in the 1970s and this flat has many original features. It was originally designed as a three bedroom flat but has been altered and now provides two double bedrooms. The flat is situated at the rear of the building and enjoys a pleasant outlook over the well maintained communal garden.

Luccombe Court is delightfully situated close to the attractive Old Village area of Shankin and nearby there is access to The Meade which is a large public park, path and steps down to the beach, there is also access to many miles of delightful foot and bridal paths that surround the area. The main shopping centre is about a mile and there is a bus stop about a 300 yard walk away.

The flat has its own separate entrance with an entry phone system and the accommodation is warmed by gas fired central heating and it also has double glazed windows, most of which are in wooden frames, apart from the kitchen which is a uPVC framed unit.

In our opinion the flat does require some refurbishment but would make an excellent home for retirement or even as a second home for holiday use. Flats in Luccombe Court can be let on long lets but not for short holiday breaks. It comprises:
