Description Print This Page Print this property

A rare opportunity to buy this large 2 double
bedroom flat located between Westbourne and
Bournemouth. 2 bathrooms, separate loo, stunning
kitchen, 15ft long balcony. Great 1st home or buyto-
let investment at 5.53% gross yield. The
property will be supplied with a new 99 year lease
on completion.

This light and airy flat has been in the same
ownership for a number of years, the owners having
lived here before moving abroad. It is currently
tenanted, which expires in February 2017. Much of
the furniture and appliances belong to the vendors
including the dishwasher and washing machine so if
a 1st time buyer or investor there is an opportunity
to purchase these.

The block and the flat has had significant
expenditure: new windows and heating in the flat.
The balconies in the block were refurbished in
2010, the roof in September 2013, the lift in 2009.
The block was built in 1970 and at that time space
was given to the grounds and this block has an in
and out drive, an ornamental fishpond and a private
gate straight into Bournemouth Gardens.Whilst the
flat doesn’t have a garage there is good parking in
the grounds and Surrey Road itself is free parking.
Garages do become available from time to time to
rent via the freeholder.

What better after work to sit on the balcony with a
glass of wine and look out over the large fishpond
and the magnificent St Johns Church. Despite its
convenient location, it is peaceful being on the
borders of Bournemouth Gardens.

Bournemouth Town Centre within 15 minutes and

within 100 yards of each other, you can enjoy fish n
chips at Harry Ramsdens or fine dine atWestbeach
fish restaurant. From there you can walk along the
beach or the prom all the way to the famous
Sandbanks beaches, on the edge of Poole Harbour,
the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and
haven to boats of all sizes as well as being a UK hub
for windsurfing and kitesurfing. From Sandbanks,
you can catch the chain ferry to the Purbeck Hills.
There is a large cycling community and Dorset’s
Jurassic coast is a destination for walkers.
The whole area is also full of
great golf courses and there are a lot of local gyms.
And in Bournemouth there are the entertainment
centres at the Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth
International Centre and lots of cinemas and of
course the famous nightlife.

M&S food store and a few hundred yards further is a
Tesco’s. Bournemouth itself is large shopping centre
with a mixture of high street names and
independent stores. The famous Castlepoint
shopping Centre is 3 miles away and for home
furnishings, just beyond Tesco’s is the Redlands
Retail Park with the likes of John Lewis Home,
