Property Details

The property is situated on the third floor of this popular modern development. It is accessed via the communal entrance hall that has stairwells and lifts to all floors including the underground car park.

Upon entering the flat you will find a spacious entrance hall offering ample storage areas. The hallway then provides access to two double bedrooms with the main bedroom benefiting from en-suite shower room comprising of large shower cubicle, low level W.C, wash and basin and heated towel rail. Further into the property there is a main bathroom comprising of bath with mixer taps and shower over, low level W.C, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

At the far end of the property the entrance hall will lead you to a stunning, bright and spacious open planned living/kitchen/dining area. The main hub of the property benefits from multiple windows to both side and rear aspect allowing for huge amount of natural light to fill the space. this just further extenuates the feeling of space and well designed living accommodation. The kitchen is fully fitted and benefits from a range of integrated appliances such as electric hob with cooker hood over, Whirlpool oven/grill, microwave and dishwasher and Zanussi washer/drying machine.

To the rear of the property, accessed via double doors from the living area, you will find a stunning balcony roof terrace offering a further 350 square foot of outside living accommodation. The balcony offers views over local allotments and really offers a feeling of indoor/outdoor living you will rarely find in most central City flats.

Outside there are additional, well kept communal gardens with seating areas and raised planted beds. There is also the added benefit of one allocated parking space and cycle storage in the secure underground garage. The communal stairwell and lift also services the underground garage level so you can be leave your car and be steps away from your front door within seconds.

Our thoughts are that this flat, without the balcony, would still offer well planned, bright, spacious and open planned living. But with the balcony, it raises this property to a completely new level offering genuine outside space not only you but many of your guests can enjoy. We have done everything we can to reflect this property in the most accurate way but an internal inspection is still highly recommended to fully appreciate the accommodation on offer.
