The Property



The property is approached from the rear parking along a path to the side, which leads to the front door. This opens into a welcoming entrance hall with two large storage cupboards - one houses the electrics and the other is fitted with slatted shelves and a power point. The large combined sitting and dining room enjoys an outlook to the rear and has an opening to the kitchen. This is fitted with a range of wood units consisting of floor cupboards with drawers and eye level cupboards. There is a good amount of work surfaces with tiled splash back and stainless steel sink and drainer with swan neck mixer tap. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine and included in the sale is the gas freestanding cooker and fridge/freezer. The boiler is also sited in the kitchen. The well proportioned bedroom overlooks the communal gardens to the front and has a built in wardrobe. The bathroom is fitted with a steel bath, low level WC and table top wash hand basin, which has a mirror above and shaver light/point plus marble tiled flooring.


Although there is no private garden specifically attached to the flat, the green spaces at the front and rear are maintained by a visiting gardener, and offer scope for small plants or flower pots if desired. There is a grassed area from the parking, which the current owner has used during her time of living here.
The allocated parking space is accessed under the arch and to the right and is located by the path to the front door.
