GUIDE PRICE £310,000 TO £330,000 Access by foot to the left of the building takes you to the entrance at the rear of the property. A communal door shared with one other apartment opens into a rather grand hall with stairs leading to the private entrance on the second floor. A door to the apartment followed by a short rise of stairs takes you to the spacious hallway from which the living room, kitchen, bathroom and three bedrooms can be found. The spacious hallway provides ample space for furniture and includes a fitted airing cupboard with plenty of storage space. For additional storage the loft is also accessible from the hallway and has been fully insulated.
At the front of the property you will find the spacious living room. The living room enjoys the feature of being dual aspect, with double doors opening to the south-facing, concrete based balcony and a separate original sash window to the side of the room. A working period fireplace makes a lovely focal point for the room while the numerous plug points and aerial point ensure modern life can enjoyed within the period surroundings.
From an etched glass door sitting at the rear of the apartment you will find the kitchen which could easily lend itself as a kitchen/diner. The kitchen benefits from an array of painted solid wood, glass fronted cupboards, both at floor and wall level. Plenty of work surfaces are available along with space for a washing machine and fridge. Included with the kitchen is a fitted fan-assisted oven and four ring electric hob. A casement window to the side of the kitchen and a door at the rear means plenty of light floods the room. The rear door opens to an external staircase which provides an alternative entrance and exit from the apartment. The top of the staircase has plenty of space for a small table and two chairs allowing for the beautiful far reaching views to be enjoyed of an evening.
The master bedroom can be found at the front of the property and has a double front aspect with two casement windows giving pleasant southerly views and allowing natural light into the spacious bedroom. A period fireplace and large original fitted cupboard sustain the period feel and the space on offer means there are plenty of options for additional furniture.
Bedroom two is another double room and like the master benefits from fitted storage. The second bedroom at present lends itself as a more formal dining room, however, is a great size for a second double bedroom.
The third, and final bedroom is a large single room, which the current owner makes great use as a work from home study. A single bed can easily fit with further space for storage and if necessary it’s even possible to squeeze in a double!
Competing the apartment is the partly tiled bathroom, with a period bath, fitted over-top power shower and ‘Thomas Crapper’ style toilet. In addition there is a wash basin with storage beneath and two obscured glass casement windows making the room both light and airy.
Outside you will find a shared storage area beneath the external staircase, which is currently used to store recycling bins, garden tools and logs for the open fire. To the side of the storage area is another shared area which is laid with gravel.
The beautifully presented private garden sits behind the building with its own gated access and natural borders. The garden measures approximately 75 x 25 ft and is laid to lawn with numerous surrounding flowerbeds providing both colour and life. An array of specimen trees and plants creates a real sense of privacy throughout the garden which goes hand in hand with the peace and quiet which can be enjoyed in this semi-rural location. The garden benefits from enjoying plenty of sun, especially during the afternoon and evening. A central patio means dining can be enjoyed ‘al fresco’ style and it sits conveniently next to the sunken pond which itself has plenty of pretty water lilies adding colour once more.
At the rear of the garden you will find the fully functional workshop. The workshop measures approximately 10 x 8 ft and benefits from its own power supply. Completing the garden is the greenhouse, ideal for the green fingered!
The tenure of this property is leasehold and will be offered with a quarter share of the freehold. The current lease is to be extended by the owner, providing 999 years from completion. Any additional charges are split equally between the four homeowners within the building.
