Owner's Comments - "The property is a very quiet and bright. It is in the smallest building in the development with pleasant neighbours. One of only two flats in the block with access to a rear communal garden which we used regularly and was remarkably private. Perfect location as we commuted and could walk to the station in 15-20 minutes, and about 10 minutes into the town centre and supermarket. Sky dish is pre-installed so easy connection for a new owner, and we found the phone and WiFi signal at the property fantastic. It has been an economical property to run with affordable utility bills, lovely high pressure power shower in the bathroom and great for parking with lots of spaces available to visitors, where we always parked to be close to back doors of the property. Just time to move up the ladder."
