Overall Description

This stunning contemporary loft-style apartment sits at the end of the corridor on the first floor of this very sought after modern development, a high quality conversion of a former office block, that was completed in 2014. The apartment is much larger than most one bedroom apartments in the block - c.645 sq ft of living accommodation versus c.470 sq ft for a standard 1-bed apartment - and has a number of features that lift it out of the ordinary including a spacious hallway with space to create a home office, also a bathroom with a separate bath and double shower cubicle (most just have a shower). 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 a large industrial style feature window to the main sitting room throwing lots of light into the property. The apartment has been finished to the highest standards with a luxury bathroom suite, contemporary high-gloss kitchen units with soft close doors and fitted quality white/brown goods and an energy efficient electric central heating system that also heats the hot water. Outside there are communal gardens with an electric gated car-park to the rear with one allocated space for the apartment - very convenient as it is the closest to the back door - as well as ample visitor spaces to the front. If you are looking for a highly contemporary apartment either for yourself or as a buy-to-let investment (the estimated rent is £1,000 a month which is more than many others in the block) then this superb property is not to be missed.
