This perfect 1 bedroom apartment near to Bournemouth town centre is very well presented throughout and is in a building that has well looked after communal areas. The entrance to the block has individual post boxes and a notice board to show details from the management company etc. Set across 2 floors, the bedroom and kitchen on the lower and the lounge/diner and bathroom on the upper, gives the impression of this already well-proportioned apartment being even bigger. This apartment would be ideal for a young working couple buying their first home or as a buy to let investment. Given its fantastic location with excellent transport links into town and further afield, it would be great for those who work in town or even those working at JP Morgan and the Royal Bournemouth Hospital which are both very easily accessed by the A338 just a minute or two’s drive from the property.
