Full description

The apartment really lives up to its name with views of the City from its first floor windows. The apartment is part of a shared ownership development with the asking price reflecting a 75% share in this particular property (although the full percentage can be purchased if preferred). The striking design of the lounge gives a panoramic view of the area and the development has secure parking for residents. With everything the City centre has to offer in easy walking distance this modern apartment is a perfect place for first time buyers or a couple looking to downsize.

We always aim to make sure that our photographs, floor plan and descriptions are accurate but they are meant purely as a guide and purchasers must satisfy themselves by personal inspection. No services, systems or appliances mentioned have been tested by us. If you have a specific question about anything in these details we will be pleased to obtain an answer for you.

Situated in a great position to take advantage of the City centre's multitude of amenities including major high street retailers and independent shops, a wide range of bars, cafe's and restaurants plus nightlife to suit all tastes, all within walking distance. The mainline railway station is in walking distance as is the University and bus station. The peaceful oasis of Avenham and Miller Parks, with their distinctive Victorian elegance rolling down to the river are only a short stroll away and the Guild Wheel cycle path can be accessed here as well.

* The apartment is a 75% shared ownership property and the asking price reflects this fact. Although there is the option of purchasing the full 100% if required. * Double glazed windows and electric storage heating. * The lounge and bedrooms are wired for Sky and telephone. * The kitchen has an integrated Neff hob and oven plus space for a washing machine and upright fridge freezer.

We like the striking look of the building with its castle style turret looking across to the City buildings which are close enough without feeling too close. The apartment itself has been well looked after and the communal areas always appear tidy and well maintained. The security to the building is reassuring and we like the gated parking area. We also like the fact that you can walk to anywhere within the City Centre so getting about is easy.

"Number 17 has been our home since 2007 when we bought it from the developer. We loved the quirky room shapes and unusual windows in the lounge, it was so different from other apartments we viewed. There are a mix of young professionals, retired couples and young families in the development which appealed to us and the amenities of the City centre are literally only a few minutes walk away. City Views is a fantastic place to live and we are sure the next owner will be just as happy as we have been."

* The apartment is leasehold with approximately 140 years remaining. * The ground rent is (tbc) per annum and current service charges are £67.58 per month. * A monthly rent of £117.82 is charged for the 25% share held by Contour Housing Association * The EPC Rating is C. * The council tax band is A with a current annual charge of £1128.88.

The lounge area has plenty of space for a dining table and the kitchen has plenty of wall and floor units with ample worksurfaces illuminated by underlighting. The two bedrooms are at either end of the apartment and both are large enough to accommodate a double bed with windows overlooking the City.
