We understand that a new roof and soffits were fitted during the summer of 2020. The property is one of four apartments within the building, that each have a share of the freehold, with the remainder of a 999yr lease. An important and attractive feature is the property can not be holiday let. It has full residential use, either for a main dwelling or holiday home, but it can only be used by friends and family and not a business venture. This creates a calm and friendly environment for all the residents to enjoy. No onward chain for quick completion.
