Overall Description

This is a nicely presented first-floor apartment, with lift access, in this modern development that was built in 2015. The apartment has an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room with wooden flooring, modern fitted kitchen units and ample room for dining and seating areas. This room also has a balcony to the front providing private outside space. The bedroom is a good-size with fitted wardrobes and the bathroom is also very contemporary. The apartment has gas central-heating, double-glazed windows (giving it a very good energy efficiency rating of B) and is being sold with no chain as well as, importantly, a long lease (c.118 years remaining). There is an allocated parking space in the under-ground car-park and residents have use of the attractively landscaped riverside gardens with direct access to the tow path into town. If you are looking for a well presented modern apartment a stone's throw from the station and close to everything that Hertford has to offer then this property is well worth a look. It would also make an excellent Buy-to-Let proposition, especially being so close to the station. The property is being sold with no forward chain.

Location

The property is located in a quiet riverside location on the east side of the bustling and picturesque market town of Hertford, with direct access to riverside walks along the towpath and less that a five minute walk from Hertford East Station with its regular train services to the City (Liverpool Street). The town centre is under ten minutes walk away and the property is just a short drive from the A10, so it is a very convenient location for commuters. Hertford has a very good range of local facilities such as shops, pubs, restaurants, and supermarkets (Tesco and M&S are both close-by), yet is also an attractive and pleasant place to live. The town is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside and has a wide range of sporting and leisure pursuits close to hand, including Hartham Common (just across the river) with its playing fields, riverside running track, activity centre/gym, swimming pool and tennis courts.
