Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The apartment 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. 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. The building was fully redecorated externally approximately 12 months ago.

Internally, the apartment is in good condition and is offered with vacant possession. The accommodation is all on the ground floor, being accessed firstly through the communal lobby and inner hallway. The internal entrance hallway then leads on to the bright and airy sitting room, which features modern USB-charging power points incorporated into the sockets, the fully tiled shower room with double shower cubicle and the double bedroom. Entered off the sitting room, the kitchen is fitted with a range of units at base and eye-level and features a ceramic 4-ring hob, stainless steel sink with drainer, integral oven and space for a plumbed appliance. During the current owner's tenure over the past three years the immersion tank has been replaced, as has the double glazed window in the bedroom.

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

We would encourage interested parties to view this conveniently and attractively located property.

The apartment will be sold with the remainder of a 999-year lease which commenced in 1992. The Service Charge amounts to roughly 450 per annum (to be confirmed). Leaseholders also take on a ninth share of the management company who own the freehold of the building.
