Property Details

2 1 1
***APPROX 850sq Feet***A splendid chance to purchase a bright and spacious grade II listed character home with two double sized bedrooms and ideally located just a short walk to the town centre and all facilities, including the mainline train station. The property is one of nine homes that were either converted or built in the late 1990s and forming a small development that was previously The Queens Head public house, which dated to the mid 1800s. The property was sympathetically converted to include many of the original character features, which include sash windows, some with seats underneath, high ceilings and exposed ceiling beams, as well as the original quarry tiled floor in the kitchen. The property has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our seller for the last eight years. During this time it has been improved with a new main front door and kitchen as well as being well maintained, both internally and externally. The property owners form their own management company and take the responsibility seriously - meeting once a year to decide what needs to be done and assess the maintenance charge. This delightful home must be viewed to truly appreciate the internal space, its own outside space plus the communal areas and its proximity to the town, An ideal downsize in retirement, great investment opportunity, even a lock up and leave UK base or retreat from a hectic city life.
