About this property

  • This is a modern apartment situated within the ‘Firebrick' building and forms part of a popular recently constructed scheme of properties with other similarly styled apartment buildings. The property is situated on the ground floor and attracts a great deal of natural light and looks into the communal gardens and grounds.

    The property extends to approximately 718 sq ft internally and comprises two large double bedrooms and family bathroom with the master having a built-in double wardrobe and en suite shower room. To the front of the property is a spacious open plan sitting room and fitted kitchen. The kitchen area has a good range of white cabinetry, deep wide pan drawers and has integrated Bosch oven, hob, fridge freezer and dishwasher along with a side window to attract further light. There is a glazed door and windows to the front which leads to an enclosed terrace which has views over the communal gardens and grounds below.

    The property, which is being offered with an early completion if required has quality flooring to the reception/kitchen area and has a gas fired under floor heating system throughout.
