Property details

Period features throughout add to the endearing character of this stylish and well-located flat. High ceilings and large windows flood each room with natural light and add to the sense of space.

The separate kitchen is finished with subway back-splash tiling, modern integrated appliances and abundant storage options. The kitchen also offers plenty of space to dine and feeds through to a handy, separate utility room.

Both bedrooms are genuine doubles that are perfect for sharers as they are fairly equal in size. The bedrooms sit adjacent to a contemporary family-sized bathroom. The entire block was renovated with high-quality workmanship 15 years ago. There are very low energy costs and good sound insulation to the flats, so no fear of disturbing the neighbours if you want to have a dinner party.
