Property Details

1 1 1
A delightful grade II listed one double bedroom apartment, which benefits from its own entrance and private courtyard and is ideally placed within walking distance of all the town's facilities. We believe that the property dates to the early 19th century when it was a hotel and in recent years has been converted into private apartments. Our seller has maintained the apartment well during the eight years of ownership and it is presented to the market in good condition. This lovely apartment enjoys a bright and roomy interior retaining character features, such as, sash windows and deep window sills, exposed timbers and a feature fireplace. A viewing is vital to really appreciate what this home has to offer and how it will meet many needs, from those seeking their first home, those looking for a quiet retreat from a hectic working week or even as a look up and leave UK base. An early viewing is recommended to avoid missing out on the chance to own this charming property.
