The Property

Converted in the late 1980's as part of the refurbishment of the adjacent shops and flats, this mews style cottage occupies a central location in the High Street, yet tucked away from passing traffic. It has upside-down accommodation to maximise the living space and benefits from double glazing throughout, with a gas fired boiler supplying radiators and hot water.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a hall with staircase off. On the right is the bathroom with a built-in cupboard, while on the left is a double bedroom with a cupboard housing the electrics. Stairs lead to the open-plan first floor comprising a kitchen with adjacent sitting and dining area. The kitchen has an electric oven and gas hob. The washing machine, fridge/freezer and microwave are also included. There are two windows and a roof light. The furniture in the sitting area is available for purchase if required.

General

The property is Leasehold. A new 99 year lease commenced in 1988 and has subsequently been extended by a further 90 years, so there are about 156 years remaining, with a peppercorn ground rent. The flat pays 15% of the service charge, which for 2020 equates to £46.30 per month, which includes buildings insurance, communal lighting and fabric repairs. Council Tax band B - £1,644.68 payable for 2021/22. EPC rating - to follow.
