Property Details

1 1 1
A bright and roomy top floor apartment with one double bedroom, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and boasting spectacular views over the hills and countryside to the front and side. The apartment is ideally located just a short stroll to the town centre where there is a selection of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages and a variety of entertainment venues. The property also has some wonderful country and riverside walks on the doorstep. We believe that the property was built in about 2007 and has been owned by the sellers since new and used as a very successful rental. However, it would also make a great first time buy, lock up and leave UK base or a retreat from a hectic city life. The apartment benefits from electric economy 10 heating to radiators, uPVC double glazed windows with an attractive Georgian style bar and has recently been redecorated and a new carpet laid in the sitting room. The property provides spacious living and must be viewed to truly appreciate what is on offer.
