This spacious well-presented first floor apartment forms part of a handsome four storey stone-built crescent, originally constructed during the late 19th century. The tastefully decorated interior displays many attractive features including decorative and plain cornice work, natural timber doors throughout, sanded and sealed flooring in the bay windowed sitting room, and an impressive stained glass window within the bathroom door. It is understood the flexible layout has conversion potential to create a two bedroom layout – for which plans are available. This work would be subject to all necessary permissions/paperwork etc.
Presently the interesting layout offers a generously proportioned front facing sitting room with a useful study recess, a large double bedroom, a rear facing living/dining room, and an attractively modernised bathroom with a white three piece suite, incorporating a shower fitting over the bath. The small but well-designed kitchen contains a good range of integral appliances, ample worktops, the Combi boiler, and a rear facing window. Benefits include gas fired central heating, a security entry phone system, and double glazing to the sitting room and bedroom windows.
The flat has previously very successfully rented out with a monthly rental income of £750.00.
