Property Details

1 1 1
An opportunity not to be missed!! A delightful one double bedroom apartment, boasting far reaching views over the Somerset Levels and presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain. The apartment is situated in a popular residential area and within easy walking distance to all that the town has to offer and is within reach of some fabulous countryside walks. We believe that the house dates to the 1930s/1950s and was converted by the owner of the house in around 2008 who retains the freehold. The first floor apartment was purchased about six years ago by the current owner who has maintained to the property to a high standard. The loft space has benefitted from additional insulation, a new gas fired combination boiler was installed and new carpets in the hall, stairs and landing have been laid. In addition, the apartment benefits from uPVC double glazing, parking and garage as well as its' own outdoor space. A viewing is imperative to truly appreciate the size of the property and how it would satisfy many buyers' needs - from those looking to get a foot on the housing ladder to those wishing to make an investment for the rental market. The apartment would also make a fabulous retreat from a hectic working week or lock up and leave UK base. An early viewing is strongly urged to avoid missing out on the chance to own this home.
