A modern two-bedroom apartment with generous floor space, a stylish quality finish, off-street parking and a long lease (115 years). This is perfect for first-time buyers or those looking for an investment property; this apartment offers a comfortable and contemporary living experience that is also exceptional value for money.
Space is in abundance here, and the space is well distributed across the flat too; every room feels chunky, and there really is little to compromise on. The living room is at the front of the building and from your two large double-glazed sash windows has a pretty view over Marlow Road, in particular, the stunning cedar tree in the garden opposite. There’s a high level of finish in this room, and the plush carpet gives it a very homely vibe, it’s bright too, especially when the sun is in the west in the afternoon, as it really floods through those beautiful windows.
The kitchen boasts acres of wood countertops, masses of storage space, and an integrated oven and gas hob, making cooking a joyous experience. Whilst spacious, the kitchen could also be opened up to the reception room if you wanted to create a larger and more sociable space.
Down the large and very spacious hall, is the bathroom, which is equally as impressive as the kitchen, with elegant fixtures, large luxury tiles and a shower over a full-size bath-tub, it gives you the best of both worlds for those that like showers and also baths, for the ultimate relaxation after a long day.
One of the highlights of this property is undoubtedly the two large double bedrooms, providing plenty of space, both have a bright southeast-facing aspect which gets the morning sun. The master bedroom is only one foot smaller than the reception room and has space for the largest of wardrobes, and the biggest bed you could wish for! The second bedroom is a large double too and can easily double up as a spacious office for when you need to work-from-home and be a guest bedroom too.
