Description

The building within which the flats are located, comprises a semi-detached essentially three storey block of brick and timber construction, with walls clad with facing brick and render, under a mansard style roof, incorporating dormers, which is part clad with slate and partly flat and covered with felt. The building stands within its own self-contained plot, which is mainly surfaced for car parking, with an element of garden ground. There are three ground floor flats which are accessed externally and a fourth which has both a “front door” from the communal part of the building and a separate door to the garden area. The other 5 flats are approached via the communal entrance and internal staircase.

The site’s boundaries are defined by both timber fencing and painted brick walls.

The property requires some upgrading/refurbishment and following these works, provides an interesting investment opportunity which has the potential to provide a substantial income flow from either longer term corporate/professional lettings or more short term occupancies.
