Tenure: Leasehold

Royal Crescent is the most wonderful place to live, offering great views across Crescent Gardens and out to sea, along with the advantage of being so close to the centre of town and its amenities. This flat has been lovingly improved and offers massive amounts of accommodation, with 4 double bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and a kitchen, large enough to get a table into as well. The lease on the building precludes holiday letting, although it allows letting on a shorthold tenancy basis, for first or second home owners, this is ideal.

With the views from the front, double glazing and gas central heating, this is certainly an apartment that wants viewing sooner rather than later.

Approached from Royal Crescent, steps lead up to the traditional timber front door which opens into the…

Vestibule: The vestibule has a glazed inner door with an entry phone system and this leads on into the hallway.

The hallway has just been redecorated and has attractive panelled walls leading up to the staircase, which rises right the way up through the building, with a glass atrium at the top, allowing ample natural light into the middle of this substantial house. This not only illuminates the stairwell, but gives this apartment natural light into both the entrance hallway and the top floor landing.

At the top of the stairs a glazed entrance door opens into…

Entrance Hallway: The large and welcoming entrance hallway has a window to the stairwell, which along with the glazed front door, allows plenty of natural light from the atrium into this nicely proportioned reception area.

The hallway offers wooden flooring, a radiator, telephone point and character is imparted by both the pine panelled doors to principal rooms and a coved ceiling and ceiling rose.

Dining Room: 14'5 (excluding cupboard) x 8'10 The dining room has a uPVC double glazed window to the front, which also offers the views out to sea and across to Sandsend Ness, has a radiator and a coved ceiling.

Tenure: The property is held on the remains of a 125 year lease, with approximately 100 years remaining. The freeholder of the building is the management company, of which the owner of this flat will become a director. It was debated at the last AGM as to whether new leases should be granted extending the term. As members are directors of the management company, this would be to all owner's benefits.

The lease precludes holiday letting, but allows shorthold tenancy letting and pets are also welcome. Currently the service charge is £600 per annum (£50 per month) and this covers the maintenance and buildings insurance, as well as cleaning.

Directions: From the town centre, head out of town back up Bagdale to the roundabout at the bottom of Chubb Hill. Turn right here and proceed straight across the roundabout at the top of the hill, turning right just beyond Harrison's Garage, onto Crescent Avenue. Follow this road right to the end and it brings you out on Royal Crescent, on top of the West Cliff. Turning right onto the Crescent, no.11 lies on your right hand side, identifiable by our 'For Sale' board.

Services: The property is understood to be connected to mains water, gas, electricity and drainage. Central heating and hot water are understood to be provided by the gas fired combi boiler located in the kitchen.
