Description

Full details This, neat and tidy, vacant apartment is situated on the second (top) floor of a converted - nicely maintained - six flat detached late Victorian / early Edwardian building, which faces on to the carefully managed Grimston Gardens green space (freely accessible to local residents).
There is a lot of space in this flat as is typical of older properties.

Grimston Gardens is located in the sought after West End of Folkestone, off the main roads but only about a 10 minute walk from the Town Centre, the bus station and two separate railway stations (both offering the High Speed link to London), and also to the famous and stunning 'Leas' where Grand buildings and tended gardens with wonderful views abound. The South Downs, White Cliffs, France and Dungeness are all in glorious sight on a good day. The famous 'Creative Quarter', revamped harbour, pebble and sandy beaches and the many attractions of the Lower Coastal Park are all easily accessible to walkers - or by road if the cliff-side pathways are a little strenuous for some.

So, if you are looking for a spacious new home, close to amenities but within a leafy side street environment, at a very fair price, then this flat may just be the one for you!

Communal hall From the large and gracious panelled communal lobby and stairwell to the second floor:

Entrance hall 10' 6" x 6' 5" (3.22m x 1.96m) The carpeted and bright entrance hall features a large storage / hanging space and it leads to the living room and bedroom 2 whilst the extended hallway serves the other rooms. A hatch provides access to the private loft space.

Living room 18' 11" x 16' 9" (5.78m x 5.12 maxm) Front (south) facing very large room offering beautiful views across Grimston Gardens.

Kitchen/diner 13' 6" x 8' 11" (4.12m x 2.74m) Bright, modern, east facing room fitted with a matching range of smart wall and base units in contemporary greys and silvers. Already plumbed for a washing machine and a dishwasher (existing units can remain by negotiation). Also features a built in electric oven with inset mains gas hob above, space for a large fridge/freezer unit and the breakfast table and chairs.

Bedroom one 14' 1" x 13' 10" (4.30m x 4.23m) Here is a very large double bedroom with a bright southerly outlook to Grimston Gardens. Wardrobe and other furniture can remain if desired.

Bedroom two 13' 11" x 6' 5" (4.25m x 1.96m) Front facing (space for a double) room - also with a lovely southerly 'green space' outlook.

Bathroom 9' 10" x 9' 0" (3.00m x 2.76m) Large room fitted with a four piece white suite comprising full bath, hand basin, toilet, and a shower cubicle. A cupboard houses the electric boiler for central heating and hot water.

Loft The loft is accessed from the entrance hall through a vented hatch. The light served space is fitted with insulation under the roof tiles to provide a 'warm loft'. There is a lot of potential here to use additional space for storage - or perhaps craft works?

Store cupboard Situated in the basement of the building, there is a large private space allocated to this flat.

Service Charges / Ground Rents There is no Ground Rent charged as the buyer will acquire a 1/6th share of the Freehold Owning Company – 'Holdstance Property Management Limited'
The July 2017 – June 2018 Service (Maintenance) Charge is set at £1200 per annum but this is agreed upon each year by the Shareholders in conjunction with the Managing Agent so it is not imposed by outside parties. The Company maintains a small but healthy surplus in its fund to cover known and also some unforeseen maintenance demands and also to provide a base for any future major works (none planned for the short to medium term pipeline).
