Property Details

2 1 2
***MOTIVATED VENDORs ***END OF CHAIN*** A stylish duplex loft apartment boasting fabulous rooftop and distant rural views and offering contemporary living combined with character features and just a hop, skip and jump to the town centre and next door to the outdoor swimming pool. Shaftesbury has something to offer everyone with numerous individual shops and chain stores as well as a thriving arts community with many musicians, artists of all types and a theatre with many productions, film screenings and art shows. The town of Gillingham is just five miles away with a mainline train station serving London, Waterloo and the West Country. This former granary was converted in about 2004 into four apartments and two loft apartments and has been owned and used by our seller for the last thirteen years as a successful investment. However, it would make a great first time home or even as a bolt hole from a hectic life. The apartment has a bright roomy interior with plenty of interesting features and offers flexible room usage depending on one's needs. The property also benefits from gas fired central heating via radiators and uPVC double glazed windows, including some sash windows and an attractive Georgian bar inlay. A viewing is imperative to really appreciate just what this chic home will offer the next lucky owner.
