We take great pleasure in marketing this split-level SHARE OF FREEHOLD, two DOUBLE bedroom, TWO RECEPTION ROOM, TWO BATHROOM (two full bathrooms), period conversion on Elsinore Road. The property is being offered CHAIN FREE.
Buyers should note the property could be arranged as a three-bedroom flat if the room currently being used as a dining room is used as a bedroom (please refer to the floor plan).
Offering over 880 sq ft of living space, the property is larger than many other flats and due to being split level with a bedroom and bathroom on the top floor, feels much like a house internally.
The property offers period charm combined with moderns finishes internally. The lounge has period character due to the square bay with sliding sash windows (which are double glazed), picture rails, fire place with cast iron surround and ornate tiles, whilst the bathrooms and kitchen offer modern finishes in keeping with current interior design trends.
The stair case also adds to the period charisma as the spindles and flow of the staircase mimic those found in character houses. The exposed floor boards found in some of the property is also a nice touch.
The bedroom at the back of the property has windows on two sides and the bedroom on the top floor can be used for multiple purposes. You will note from the images that there is a desk neatly positioned in an alcove and a store area (with its own window) which is cleverly being used as a shoe rack currently by the present owners.
In addition, there is loft / eaves storage available.
There is much more to this property that can only be appreciated upon viewing, however the images do a fantastic job of showing you what’s on offer. Please also see our 360-degree images to give you more insight into what the property offers.
