Undoubtedly the stand-out feature of this stunning home is the large outdoor terrace with enviable lakeside views which is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of tea or glass of wine in the evening! In show home condition, it is ideal for those looking to downsize to a lower maintenance home, without compromising on quality.
Why buy this home?
If you are looking for the convenience of a modern home, yet still crave the slower paced lifestyle of a village location then this stunning apartment is for you.
Located on the ground floor makes it ideal for those looking to downsize. The current owners did just that when they moved from their house overlooking Caldecotte Lake, and thought this would be their base in the UK forever as it meant stairs became a thing of the past.
In the entrance hall there are two storage cupboards which are essential in modern apartments. To the left is the main bathroom which is half-tiled in a crisp white finish. There is a hair washing shower head, tiled window sill for bathroom essentials and a heated towel rail for those frosty mornings.
Next to the bathroom is the second bedroom which has substantial built-in wardrobes meaning only a bed is required. The current owners are using this a dressing room but it's a good enough size to be a comfortable bedroom.
On the opposite side of the entrance hall is the master bedroom which has its own ensuite. As with the second bedroom the master has built-in wardrobes, but this time there are two separate units with a clever storage unit in-between so a TV can be placed on top. French doors lead out to the terrace from both here and the main living space, meaning two areas can be created for morning and evening enjoyment.
The open-plan living space is wonderfully bright thanks to the French doors leading to the terrace and the floor to ceiling window to the side. As shown by the current owners, there is enough space for a dining table and chairs as well as two sofas. The kitchen is finished in white high-gloss units which help to reflect even more light. Integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, slimline dishwasher and washing machine, as well as a gas hob and AEG electric double oven.
The terrace is a superb outside space, and a welcome addition as this is often the main downside to apartments. It means you can make the most of the surrounding green spaces whist not having to maintain it all summer. The current owners have done a wonderful job of making this space as homely as possible with the addition of flowers and plants that any gardener would be proud of.
