Stratton and King are delighted to be marketing this beautiful two double bedroom apartment, which is situated on the ground floor of this much sought after development, Linden Lodge. The apartment is ideally situated for the lift and offers deceptively spacious accommodation, a separate guest cloakroom and plenty of storage. The Lounge is a lovely room, which has plenty of space for living and dining room furniture. There is a feature electric fireplace with attractive surround, a door, which gives access to the patio area, a useful storage cupboard and a further door, which leads to the Kitchen. The Kitchen offers a range of eye and base level units with working surfaces over and tiled splashbacks. There is a built-in waist height oven, 4-ring electric hob with extractor hood over, a fridge, freezer and washer/dryer. A window overlooks the front aspect. Bedroom One is a generous double room which has a useful built in mirror fronted wardrobe. A window overlooks the communal gardens at the front of the Lodge. Bedroom Two is another generous double, which provides plenty of space for a double bed and furniture. This room could also be utilised as a hobbies room/study or a dining room if required. The Shower Room benefits from a curved glass shower cubicle, a WC and a wash hand basin with vanity unit. A heated towel rail and non-slip flooring perfectly finish this room. The Guest Cloakroom, which is situated next to the Lounge and opposite Bedroom Two, has a WC, a wash hand basin and a towel rail. Perfectly complementing this wonderful apartment are two storage cupboards, which are located in the hallway.
Linden Lodge has a Ground Source Heat Pump system which provides heating and hot water for the apartment and the whole Lodge. The system is extremely efficient to run and the cost is included as part of the service charge.
Both the Lodge and the apartment have been built and finished to the very highest standards throughout. Every detail has been considered from fitting plenty of plug sockets, TV points and illuminated light switches to the beautifully landscaped gardens, nothing has been missed. A beautiful apartment in a modern development.
