A modern flat with 'as new' fittings throughout, positioned on the 5th floor with views pretty much down the length of the internal landscaped courtyard.
The original specification of these flats was very good and this is apparent from the communal entrance lobby with its 'Cannon' motif carpets, from where access can be gained to the lift and also into the central communal courtyard with its water feature.
A short lift ride to the 5th floor brings you to the flat and internally the hallway has 'Karndean' flooring which is a good hard wearing floor and easy to clean, this continues through to the living room and kitchen area.
The living room is naturally light as it is west facing and has ample space for a sofa and small dining table. A sliding glazed door gives you access to the west facing balcony which is a nice space for 'Alfresco dining' and enjoys a view of the courtyard below.
To the rear of the living room is the modern kitchen with high gloss white units. The built in appliances include ceramic hob, oven, extractor hood, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.
The double bedroom is a good size and has a built in double wardrobe for a practical amount of storage.
Back off the hall is the luxury bathroom which has a feel that is similar to that found in a high end London hotel, but it is just yours to enjoy! Fitted with white sanitaryware and chrome fittings, tiled floors and walls with built in vanity cupboards with mirrored fronts.
