Description

An opportunity to acquire this one-bedroom, top floor flat, within a very-well maintained and quiet purpose-built block of six properties, all of which are currently owner/occupied. This particular property would therefore suit a range of buyers, from first-time movers whom benefit from paying no stamp-duty, to those looking to down-size. Also ideal for working professionals that require easy and convenient access to key transport links, and property investors, due to the impressive rental yield and an energy performance of C, ensures the property meets the governments rental standards due to be introduced in 2025! This property has been lived in by the current owner since 1987, a year when the Beatles released their first compact disc, and Margaret Thatcher became the first Prime Minister in 160 years to win a third consecutive term. With a share of freehold, and lease with 984 years remaining, no ground rent, and a reasonable service charge of £1064.12 per year, makes this property a sound investment opportunity.

The main reception room provides a good living space and is separate to the kitchen, with ample room for freestanding appliances and a new boiler, installed in April 2021. The bedroom is double in size, and conveniently includes a storage cupboard in the hallway. The common grounds are considerable and can be enjoyed by all residents. For further green-space, the property overlooks the highly-rated New Southgate Recreation Ground, perfect for a run or walk, with facilities that includes: Tennis and Basketball courts, outdoor gym and children's play area. The park also affords a wonderful view from the lounge and kitchen, with lots of greenery, as demonstrated in the photographs.

Not only does the property benefit from an allocated parking space, but should you need to commute, it could not be easier, with the 382 bus route (Southgate Station to Mill Hill East Station) stopping outside the apartment building. There are two tube stations within a mile of the property, Arnos Grove and Southgate (Piccadilly Line), and New Southgate Station within half a mile, providing a regular train service from Welwyn Garden City to Moorgate.
