Property Details

2 1 2
A well presented and maintained ground floor purpose built apartment with two double sized bedrooms, enjoying delightful views over the river and meadow and ideally located just a short walk to the mainline train station and the town centre. The apartment boasts a bright, well laid out interior with plenty of space and has the added advantage of a large lockable store within the building and a larger than average garage. In addition, the apartment benefits from an en-suite shower room, uPVC double glazing throughout and has economy 7 electric heating. This lovely home needs to be viewed to really appreciate its size and how it would lend itself to a variety of potential buyers' needs - from those looking for their first home to those looking to downsize in retirement and equally as a UK lock up and leave base or a great investment for the rental market. The position of the apartment also needs to be appreciated with its rural views yet closeness to all the town's facilities.
