Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This apartment stands in beautifully maintained grounds and communal gardens with the services of a full time gardener and a caretaker on hand keeping everything just so. A communal lobby, carpeted and well maintained communal hallways much akin to a hotel, lead you through to the passenger lift rising to the third floor (the lift can also be used to access the secure underground car parking so ideal if you are returning home with shopping etc.

Here there is a private front door leading you into the apartments entrance hall, the hall has two built in storage cupboards and offers access to both bedrooms and the living room. There is a cloakroom/WC (this is actually the third WC in the apartment!) and is fitted with a coloured suite that could benefit from some updating, in some instances this WC has been converted into a study or as further storage space as preferred.

The sizeable living room is considered a feature and has sliding patio doors opening onto its own private and pleasantly secluded balcony with an outlook over the communal grounds. The kitchen is off the living room and whilst clean, tidy and serviceable is considered could require some updating.

The main bedroom includes a bay window giving a lovely vista over the gardens and grounds, there is an ensuite bathroom again fitted with a coloured suite. The second double bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom and is similarly fitted with a coloured suite. Both these bedroom suites are similar in size and as such would lend themselves to sharers should one be considering the investment/rental opportunity here.

Outside the communal grounds surround the development with mature trees and flowering beds, there is an ornamental pond/water feature that is illuminated at night. The outdoor heated swimming pool is for residents exclusive use and is operational between March and October, the costs for which are covered within the annual maintenance charges.
