Property description

Directions From the Trafalgar roundabout at the bottom of Tregolls Road take the Malpas exit and continue for approximately 1/2 a mile until reaching Boscawen Park and at the mini roundabout turn left into Boscawen Woods. Continue to the second cul de sac parking area where the space for No.40 will be found along with visitors spaces beside. The apartment itself is then overlooking the woods which is on the right hand side with the entrance door just to the right of the archway which leads through to the crescent of houses behind.

Constructed in 2016 with the remainder of its NHBC warranty, this very nicely proportioned two bedroom duplex apartment has highly contemporary and immaculately presented accommodation. Accessed via an entrance stairway with two flights of stairs which lead up to the entrance level where there is a private hallway leading into the apartment. On the lower floor are two bedrooms including the master bedroom with ensuite shower room and also the second bathroom. The first floor comprises a stunning canopied ceiling, open plan kitchen/living/dining room, generously proportioned with clearly defined areas which allow for the kitchen which includes a washer/dryer, oven, hob and cooker hood and with wood effect flooring in the kitchen/dining area. There is a clearly defined dining section, sitting area and recess utilised as a study section. With high canopied ceilings, two of the roof light windows which have integrated blinds open to provide a balcony and viewing section from which lovely views through the woods down the Malpas river are enjoyed. There are also automatic operated roof light windows to the other side of the living section. Having gas central heating and being double glazed, this wonderful duplex apartment which has the benefit of communal grounds and previously mentioned parking with additional visitor parking would prove a lovely home or letting investment.
