Situated on a quiet residential street in popular Shandon, on the edge of leafy Harrison Park and the scenic Union Canal, this two-bedroom, fourth/top-floor flat is set on the corner of an established modern development, enjoying a sunny, open aspect, spacious, neutral interiors and secure residents’ parking. Well-served by local amenities and enjoying easy access to the city centre and the central motorway network, the conveniently located home will hold strong appeal for first-time buyers, commuting professionals, and rental investors alike.
Approached via a secure shared entrance and a stairwell to the fourth floor, the flat’s front door opens into an airy L-shaped entrance hall with three generous storage cupboards. An inner hallway (with further storage) conveniently zones the flat’s living accommodation and flows, accompanied by classic, neutral décor and sleek, timber-effect flooring, into a sunny, corner-aspect reception room, yielding lovely open views across Harrison Park. The spacious, versatile room promises a comfortable setting for everyday living, relaxing and entertaining, with space for a selection of lounge furnishings along with a dining table and chairs if desired. Next door, a bright, galley-style kitchen features a range of light, wood-styled cabinets, framed by an expanse of downlit worktops and practical splashback tiling. Incorporated within the design are a freestanding cooker, a washing machine, and a fridge. The flat’s two double bedrooms are peacefully located off the entrance hall. Both bedrooms enjoy similar sunny aspects and mirror the tranquil, neutral décor favoured throughout the appealing home. Enhanced by cosy carpeting and supplemented by built-in cupboards and wardrobes, the generous sleeping areas provide ample space for freestanding bedroom and home office furnishings. Finally, a good-sized bathroom accommodates a bathtub with an overhead shower, a pedestal sink, and a WC. Electric heating and double glazing are found throughout.
Externally, the flat is adjacent to the open green space of Harrison Park for outdoor relaxation and recreation, and residents benefit from secure, private parking.
