For Sale £220,000 - Flat
Prepare to be very impressed by this first floor purpose-built flat! Offering space, light, its own ground floor entrance and stairs, two large bedrooms, and a garage, all set in a quiet location, what’s not to like?
A brilliant opportunity for a first time buyer, or a downsizer, or even an investor, this is a spacious, clean and tidy first-floor purpose-built flat with much going for it. Set in a quiet location (noticeably so, especially for those who can remember planes coming into and out of the former Filton Airfield nearby, or the testing of jet engines!), the flat features its own private front door at ground level, with stairs leading up to the middle floor of the development. There is a large storage cupboard on the landing, a hallway of good size (with another built-in cupboard), two large bedrooms (both with modern fitted furniture), a roomy lounge, a fitted kitchen and a shower room with window. The flat is pleasantly presented, has double glazing throughout and gas-fired central heating, meaning there needs to be little to do: just move in! To the rear is a row of garages, one of which belongs to this flat.
