Overall Description

This is a stunning contemporary loft-style apartment that is tucked away in the far corner of this high quality conversion of a former office block, Bellmont Lodge, that was finished in 2014. The apartment has a real wow factor from the moment you open the front door with a nicely flowing open-plan layout, impressive 11 foot high ceilings and large industrial style feature windows to the side and rear of the property overlooking the garden and throwing lots of light into the property. Although this particular area of garden is communal you are the only ground floor flat looking onto it and with access just outside the front door it feels like your own space. Inside, the apartment has been fitted out to the highest standards with attractive modern finishings throughout including a luxury bathroom suite, contemporary floorings and quality kitchen units with soft close doors. The apartment has a good-sized double-aspect main living space (most are single) with contemporary fitted kitchen, a large double bedroom which also overlooks the garden and luxury en-suite shower room. It has large double-glazed windows, an energy efficient electric central heating system that also heats the hot water and an intercom with small TV screen for the front door. Outside there is an allocated parking space at the entrance to the secure electric-gated car-park, so just across from the apartment, and there are plenty of further visitor spaces in a second car park to the front. This superb apartment is ideal for first-time buyers wanting something a bit out of the ordinary or buy to let investors looking for a solid return.
