Overall Description

This is a stylishly presented and highly individualistic ground floor apartment in this characterful brewery conversion. The current owner has made significant improvements to the property over recent years and the overall effect is to create a modern and practical home with a contemporary and spacious feel throughout. The improvements include brand new contemporary kitchen units (with an electric oven, ceramic hob and stainless steel extractor), hardwood floors, new carpets and quality fitted hardwood wardrobes in each of the two bedrooms, double-glazed Upvc windows to front and rear, new hardwood internal fire-doors, redecoration throughout and an upgraded bathroom with new shower and basin mixer taps. The heart of the apartment is the large open-plan living room that has been divided into a sitting area at one end, with the lovely new kitchen and space for a dining room and chairs at the other. Leading from the entrance hall, which has plenty of storage space and a utility cupboard for your washing-machine/drier, are the two bedrooms and the bathroom with panel bath and shower above. The apartment has gas central heating, a fire-alarm and intercom for the front door as well as a long 93 year lease with low service and ground rent charges, as on purchase you would become part of the Owner's Association that manages the block to everyone's benefit. There is a large allocated parking space in the car-park opposite and further visitors and unloading spaces right outside. If you are looking for something very modern but with a bit of character in a pleasant village setting then you should definitely book a viewing.
