A large 2 double bedroom flat in Southbourne with off road parking, private entrance and a private 1000 sq ft garden. 999 year lease. Minutes from the beach and seconds to the shops. Some refurbishment required but perfectly liveable and priced accordingly. A great flat in a lovely location.
Through the gate and under the trellis archway into what feels like, a secret garden, a magnificent entrance to this flat. The well maintained and private garden has inset timber stepping stones leading to a patio area roofed with genuine grape vines. A wood crafted shed with windows resides to the right of an intimate patio area (great for summer BBQs and a spot of al fresco dining!) and would make excellent storage for bikes. A little bit of seclusion complete with a miniature fish pond. The garden is surrounded by fencing and mature plants for privacy from the outside world.
The front door leads into the entrance hallway, complete with large storage cupboard and separate storage and boiler room. As you walk up the stairs you get a real feel for how bright and spacious the flat is, and with large rooms throughout the feel continues throughout the property. Subject to planning there is the opportunity to expand into the large loft. At the end of the hallway, the huge living / dining room runs the full width of the building and is flooded with light through the windows. A wood burner style gas fire at one end of the room provides a real feature and a warm corner to cosy up in the evenings.
Next along the hallway is the large kitchen/breakfast room with loads of work surface and cupboard space, built in hob and oven and plenty of room for all your appliances. Both double bedrooms are a good size and bright with large windows and the part tiled bathroom has a large bathtub with shower over, extractor fan and obscure glass window for natural ventilation.
The Biasi Combi Boiler keeps the flat warm throughout the winter and delivers instant hot water all year round. All the windows in the property are double glazed.
