Description

Refurbished to a high standard in recent years this lovely first floor flat enjoys the best of both worlds with an extremely quiet location just yards from the town centre. With its ready access to amenities and very low running costs it will no doubt appeal to the first time buyer, retiree or buy-to-let investor. The bright, well proportioned accommodation comprises:- Hallway, Living Room/Kitchen, Bedroom and Shower Room. Double glazing and electric heating are installed throughout. Access through a communal laundry room (currently in disrepair) at ground floor level accesses an area of shared garden ground which in turn leads to a bin storage area and street. A small lay-by to the front provides valuable off-street parking. Viewing of this charming property is highly recommended for full appreciation.
