Property description

Buy-to-Let Investment: A stunning ground floor contemporary loft-style apartment with tenant in situ and good rental returns.

Overall Description

This is a stunning contemporary loft-style apartment that forms part of a high quality conversion of a former office block, Bellmont Lodge, that was finished in 2014. The apartment has an entrance hall leading into the master bedroom and bathroom as well as the main dual aspect sitting room with high quality kitchen with breakfast bar and two large picture windows giving it the real wow factor. The apartment has been finished to the highest standards with attractive modern finishings throughout including a luxury bathroom suite, contemporary floorings and quality kitchen units with soft close doors and it also has an energy efficient electric central heating system that also heats the hot water. Outside there is a car park with one allocated space for the apartment as well as ample visitor spaces. The apartment is currently let out with a monthly rent of £950 a month (the tenant is willing to stay should you wish) and so if you are looking for a highly contemporary apartment as a buy-to-let investment with solid returns then this superb property is not to be missed. We have an Open Day viewing this Saturday the 17th of December from 10am to 11am so please call to book a viewing.
