Description

Are you looking for that first step on the ladder as a property investor? Is your child starting University in Canterbury and you would like to buy a small property for them to live in while making a return on the rent? Then look no further, as this 1 bedroom studio pod at the student village represents a solid return on investment.

The village is a purpose built development comprising of 336 units spread across 3 separate blocks. The pod is in a cluster of 6 units along a corridor, sharing a communal area complete with kitchen, dining and seating areas.

The room itself comes fully equipped with a bed with mattress, fitted wardrobe, work station with chair, shelving and drawers, blinds and a high speed internet connection for that all important studying! Additionally there is an en-suite shower room with w/c and vanity sink unit, everything a student needs to make their time at university as stress free as possible.

The communal areas include a fitted kitchen, dishwasher, hob, fridge-freezer, microwave and TV. There is also a laundry room on site with washers and dryers and ample free parking around the block.

Behn Hall is near to a major supermarket and only a short walk to into Canterbury centre, with its great array of shops and nightlife.

What the Owner says:
I bought this pod off plan and it has proved to be a great little income stream for me over the last few years.

The fact that Urban Student Life deal with the tenancy arrangements for students and the block is fully managed, make it the easiest let imaginable.

However, the time has come for me to enjoy my retirement and hope that the next owner snaps up this opportunity for an extremely lettable property for an incredibly reasonable outlay.

Room sizes:
  • Communal Lounge/Kitchen Area
  • Bedroom (l-shaped) 16'2 x 5'6 (4.93m x 1.68m) plus 8'4 x 5'6 (2.54m x 1.68m)
  • En-suite Shower Room
