Situated in an enviable position, close to the town's amenities and walking distance to the train station is this beautifully presented and well maintained ground floor converted apartment with two double bedrooms and offering in excess of 700 square feet (68 sq. m) of living space.

In keeping with the era, the apartment boasts character features which include high ceilings, ornate ceiling roses and attractive door frame architrave mouldings, as well as picture and dado rails. To meet contemporary expectations, the apartment has double glazed windows some with a Georgian bar inlay and gas fired central heating via radiators. It is imperative to view this remarkable home inside to truly appreciate its size and ambience as well as experiencing its delightful and tranquil surroundings.
