The property for sale comprises a modernised, freshly decorated and carpeted first floor apartment, contained within a substantial four-storey stone built tenement, originally constructed around the end of the nineteenth century. The interesting layout provides a bright front facing living room with a feature fireplace, two bedrooms, a fitted kitchen incorporating a range of storage units, work tops and some appliances, and a striking re-furbished bathroom including a shower fitting and screen over the partly curved bath. There is also a small separate cloakroom containing a contemporary style wash basin and w.c.. Benefits include gas fired central heating, double glazed sash and case timber windows, and a security entry phone system.
The property offers an ideal purchase as a private dwelling, or alternatively a ‘buy-to-let’ investment, given its excellent location relative to University buildings, and the fact that the bright interior is well presented, and is in ‘ready to walk into’ condition.
