This west facing second floor apartment is placed in The Cocoa Works development and offers one bedroom and the benefit of an allocated parking space.

This hugely attractive unit was one of the first plots to be reserved and is now available again as a contract reassignment.

The apartment will be accessed via secure communal hallways with either a lift or a staircase to reach the second floor. The internal accommodation will begin with direct access to the beautiful main living and kitchen area. The whole space will be bathed in light from large windows and high ceilings that will give the feeling of generous space. The kitchen will have a modern feel with fitted units and built-in Bosch appliances. Off the main living area will be the double bedroom that has a useful built-in wardrobe. The internal accommodation is finished off with a modern bathroom and a useful storage cupboard. This apartment will also come with a private, allocated parking space that is located directly outside the apartments.

The Cocoa Works is the conversion of the former Rowntree chocolate factory and is well-placed to access the city centre, the outer ring road and local amenities. Currently under development and expected to be completed in early 2024, the superb building will have generous communal gardens and wonderful character features.

The development will also boast the advantages of a concierge team and long term a community shop and cafe will be introduced.

The property would make an excellent home close to the city, but would also make an excellent investment opportunity. For details on potential rental income, please contact the office.

Council tax band is to be confirmed.

The Cocoa Works is a leasehold development. The lease length for the apartment will be 999 years from completion of the property. The service charges will be £2.66 - £3.05 per square foot, per annum. These can be paid either quarterly or annually and will be reviewed annually against the retail price index. These prices will be reviewed before completion.

The annual ground rent* will be £100 for studio and one bedroom apartments, £150 for two bedroom apartments and £200 for three bedroom apartments. The ground rent will increase by the original amount every 25 years.

*Due to the leasehold reform (ground rent) act 2022 we anticipate there will no longer be a ground rent charge.

The property will be connected to a mains electricity supply, with mains water and sewerage supplied by Yorkshire water. For information on the broadband types available in the area, mobile availability at the property, please either check the Ofcom website or contact the office for specific details and suppliers available.

The apartment will have electric heating and high performance double glazing throughout.

Please be aware there is a further development placed to the Wigginton Road side of the building that is also under construction.
