Why buy this home?
This extremely well presented home was built in 2014, and is set on the top floor of a block of only six apartments.
On entering the apartment, the first thing you will notice that it has been freshly painted. The second thing you will notice is the amount of storage space it has, with three cupboards in the hallway. To the right hand side of the hallway is the bedroom. It has more than enough room for a double bed and a wardrobe, although you could use one of the hallway cupboards as a wardrobe to create a more spacious bedroom.
The main attraction of this property is the large open plan living/kitchen area. Not only is this a great place to socialise with friends over a drink, it is a really good useable space for every day life. There's also enough room if you needed to work from home. The kitchen has integrated appliances including a washer/dryer and fridge freezer, as well as a gas hob and electric oven.
The bathroom has stylish tiles and glass shower screen, as well as a useful window. The quality of the finishing touches the current owner has installed are really noticeable and add to the overall feeling you get from this apartment - exactly what you want from your first home.
