This delightful and superbly presented ground floor flat is situated in this attractive block of conversion flats on the ever popular Shirley Oaks Village development. The spacious apartment enjoys outlooks across open grassland and mature trees to both front and rear, views that very few locations in the surrounding areas can rival. Superbly presented and featuring well proportioned accommodation, the apartment is sensibly laid out with high ceilings and ample storage space. You will find an attractive fitted kitchen, a modern bathroom suite, double glazing, central heating [with a new boiler installed in recent years] a resident's car park and a share of the freehold, We feel this impressive apartment would make an ideal first time purchase, a good 'buy to let' investment and would also suit those downsizing too. An internal viewing comes highly recommended.
