COMES WITH FREEHOLD FOR BUILDING not just a share of the freehold.

The lounge, at the front of the property has a bay, sash window and a feature fireplace. Spanning the width of the property the lounge has space for a dedicated dining table and chairs.
The hallway has a split level subtle which creates a nice division between the front and rear of the property.
There is access to the loft space which we understand belongs to this flat due to the freehold title that comes with it. This creates an opportunity for future development subject to and consents required. We are aware of other flats locally that have been developed into the loft space providing another bedroom and bathroom.
