Property Details

2 1 1
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a delightful and spacious grade II listed garden apartment offering around 890 square feet (82 sq m.) of accommodation with two double sized bedrooms, presented for sale with the bonus of no onward chain and enjoying a short level walk to the town centre and mainline train station. The property is one of nine homes that were either converted or built in the late 1990s to form a small development that was previously The Queens Head public house, which dated to the mid 1800s. The property enjoys a share of the freehold and there is an annual meeting run by the owners to discuss any maintenance issues and to set the monthly charge. This lovely apartment has been a much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for in excess of twenty years. During this time it has been well maintained and has benefited from a replacement combination boiler in the last two years. The property also has some beautiful sash windows and secondary glazing to the front windows and double pane glass doors to the rear leading out to the courtyard and steps to the garden. The apartment would make a great first time home, downsize in retirement and equally an ideal lock up and leave UK base or investment for the rental market. A viewing is essential to truly appreciate what this unique home as to offer, not just for the inside space but also its outdoor areas and its location in the town.
