Property Details

2 1 2
A modern purpose built two double bedroom top floor apartment, exquisitely presented with views to the rear of Compton Abbas and offering around 686 square feet (63 sq. m) of contemporary open plan living space. The property is ideally located close to local shops and open space and within easy reach of the town centre where there is a selection of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages and a range of entertainment venues. The property was built in about 2014 and has been the very much loved and enjoyed home to our sellers for the last two years. During this time it has been extremely well maintained and has recently been re-decorated throughout. The apartment benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout, gas fired central heating from a combination boiler with the advantage of dual zone control and is pet friendly. A viewing is absolutely essential to really appreciate the size of the accommodation and to see how easily it would satisfy many potential buyers' requirements - from those looking to get a first step on the housing ladder to those looking for a downsize or even a lock up and leave UK base and investment for the rental market. An early viewing is strongly recommended to avoid missing out on the opportunity to own this lovely home.
