This week, we've chosen a first-floor apartment in a great location, being marketed by Bradleys with a guide price of £275,000.
This extremely well-presented first floor apartment enjoys a triple aspect, and is located in a secluded parkland setting a little over half a mile from the seafront. A covered balcony offers pleasant views in a south-easterly direction, and the property further benefits from a single garage.
Having been updated throughout by the current owners, the apartment has a comprehensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a range of fitted units and integrated Neff appliances. The quality fitted shower room has a range of attractive wall tiles with decorative mosaic border and large shower cubicle, vanity wash hand basin with cupboards below and low-level WC.
The spacious sitting room has a dual aspect with sliding doors leading onto the balcony, which offers lovely views across the grounds. There are two double bedrooms, with the main bedroom benefiting from an ensuite/utility with low-level WC and vanity wash hand basin and utility area, with plumbing and space for a further shower cubicle if required. The property has also had an updated pressurised water system located from the hall, along with upgraded energy efficient Economy 10 electric heating.
Outside, a single garage is situated nearby in a block, with up and over door. There is also a visitor parking area and car washing bay within the grounds. The Laurels benefits from delightful communal parkland with grounds of approximately three acres, which are beautifully kept for the residents' enjoyment.
We are advised the lease for this apartment has recently been increased to a term of 999 years from 2011 and that each leaseholder owns an equal share in the management company, which in turn owns the freehold of this development. We understand that the monthly maintenance charge is currently in the region of £145.00. The maintenance charge includes buildings insurance, cleaning of the communal areas, garden maintenance and external window cleaning. We understand that the council tax banding for the property is in band 'D'. This information should be confirmed by your legal adviser before entering into a contract to purchase the property.
