2 Bedroom Apartment For Sale
A very smart 2 bedroom penthouse apartment occupying the western end of the top floor of this beautiful detached grade II listed Victorian villa. The apartment has some great character features which combine well with the generous light, bright and spacious living accommodation (around 750 sq ft). It would ideally suit a single person or a couple who want the convenience and ease of having everything on your doorstep. The apartment has a large hallway which provides access to all the rooms including the bathroom, two bedrooms and an open plan living and dining area, with the kitchen off this which works well to combine everything together and provide a great entertaining space.
The living area has a lovely Victorian style fireplace and a semi circular picture window providing wonderful far reaching views across the town centre and beyond. The dining area has enough space for a decent sized table and chairs and the kitchen is fitted with a good selection of cupboards and drawers. The internal and communal areas seem to be keep very smart and freshly decorated and the property has gas heating (not tested) and parking. The building is partly hidden from the road and is within easy walking distance of the town centre, Christchurch park and the trendy waterfront marina.
From the intercom entrance you walk into the communal hallway which has a lovely old staircase which leads up to the second floor. You enter the apartment into a good sized hallway with all the doors off. There is a bathroom with a skylight window allowing for plenty of natural light, a master bedroom which is a good sized double and the second which is a good single or even a home office as at present. At the end of the hallway you walk into the main living area which has an overall length of nearly 24ft and again offers a lovely light and bright feel which comes mainly from the attractive large picture window. The dining area has space for a formal dining table and chairs and the kitchen is partially open plan with plenty of work surface space.
The property is accessed via the rear off Lacey Street where there is a parking space for each of the apartments.
A great spot for access into the town centre which is within walking distance, as is the waterfront marina and the beautiful Christchurch park. The town has a main line rail service into London Liverpool street station and there is good access for the A12/A14.
