A simply stunning split level apartment boasting character features throughout set in a beautiful location!
DESCRIPTION We have fallen in love with this stunning period apartment and there are many reasons why we think that you will too, from the peaceful countryside location tucked away from the everyday hustle and bustle we are accustomed to, to the high vaulted ceilings and large sash windows that really add to the character of this fantastic property.
The original building dates to the late 1800’s and this particular apartment is truly unique. The front door leads you down to a split-level landing and from here you can’t help but notice the floor to ceiling sash windows which fill the apartment with an abundance of natural light. Tiled flooring runs throughout the open plan sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room has plenty of space for furniture and the modern kitchen provides not only a large amount of preparation space but also benefits from a built-in fridge and freezer, in addition to extra space for other white goods. We love the dining area which is located in-front of the sash windows, the wooden flooring is a great touch and really compliments the character of the home. There is also a fantastic amount of storage which includes a cupboard which is great for coats, jackets and shoes as well as a further storage cupboard.
A spiral staircase leads to the mezzanine floor. We love the space on offer here, not only can it host a Super King size bed but there is a significant amount of inbuilt storage. A door then leads to the modern contemporary bathroom with a large walk in shower.
Outside, the communal gardens are well kept all year round. There is also a tennis court, and residents and visitors parking as well as a car wash! There is a further storage unit underneath the building which has light, perfect for buyers wanting to store large items safe but not in the flat itself.
