Full description

Tenure: Freehold

RE-AVAILABLE. This 3 double bedroom maisonette is not only a big space to live in but also an investment opportunity not only for an investor but also for whoever buys it to live there. This is because the vendor owns the freehold of both the maisonette and the flat below. Please contact us.

The flat downstairs has 72 years left on the lease with an increasing ground rent, which makes it an increasingly valuable asset. Buildings insurance and any maintenance costs are shared between the 2 properties. The ground floor flat pays a ground rent of £50 per year to the freeholder/owner of 27A.

This is a big maisonette(1100 sq ft). Through the front door of the house to a large communal entrance. Through the maisonette door to a shoe and coat storage area then up the stairs to a 7 metre long hallway. Running above this hallway is a substantial loft. Off the hallway is the kitchen/breakfast room(over 15 square metres), a separate toilet, a bathroom, the 2nd bedroom and a magnificent living room/dining area: 6 metres x 5 metres with an ornate balcony off which faces South West meaning that you get afternoon and evening sun. A real 'Cocktail' balcony. And it overlooks Churchill Gardens with its ball court, and even a communal allotment. From the hallway, up another flight of stairs to 2 further bedrooms. Plumbing is already installed on this floor to create an ensuite if you fancy. All the radiators in the property are thermostatically controlled and all the windows are double glazed. The 4 flat roofs in the property have been replaced over the course of the last 4 years.

This could be a magnificent residence.

Outside the front and rear courtyards are communal with the downstairs flat. The bike shed is owned by the maisonette.

The property is right opposite Churchill Gardens, so if you have a dog this is an immediate walking option or it is 15 minutes to Kings Park for more exercise and of course is home to the Premier League's newest club. If you have children both parks are well placed to teach the children how to ride their bikes or kick their first football.

Talking of children, the schools in the area are excellent: At Primary level, there is St Clements and St James and Corpus Christi. At Secondary level, there is Avonbourne College and the 2 Grammar Schools. All of these schools are Ofsted rated 2 or better.

Shopping? A short walk into Boscombe where there is a Sainsburys, an Aldi and a Lidl. Or jump in the car for as couple of miles to the famous Castlepoint Shopping Centre and all the major high street names.

Fun? Well if you are choosing to live in this part of the world there is of course the beach which is a 15 minute walk away. There is nothing better than an evening drink or Sunday morning breakfast at Urban Reef. Boscombe beach is part of a 7 miles of award winning beaches. If you are feeling energetic you can walk on the beach or the promenade all the way to the famous Sandbanks beaches and Poole Harbour, the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world.

In addition to watersports, the area has a big cycling and walking community to explore Dorset's Jurassic Coast.

And of course all of Bournemouth and Boscombe has a huge reputation for a wonderful selection of eateries, coffee shops and nightlife.

And of course there is work and travel: bus routes into Bournemouth are excellent. Within 5 minutes you are on the Spur Road with at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. From Bournemouth Railway Station there are direct routes to London and Manchester. And the fast growing airport in the UK is a couple of miles away.

The area has also become a significant employer with the headquarters of JP Morgan, Nationwide, Vitality, and LV in the Bournemouth region.

This could be both a magnificent residence and an excellent investment. If an investor we would project that you would achieve a minimum £900 pcm, a gross yield of 5.68%. The vendor has lived here for the past 17 years and has identified a property to purchase so is a motivated seller.
