An excellent opportunity for the over 60’s to purchase a two bedroom, two bathroom, first floor flat overlooking the pond and common in Shalford, just a short walk from the village shops.
A security entry system leads into a spacious communal entrance hall from where a lift and stairs rise to the first floor. The flat boasts views over the pond and common to the rear and the tennis courts and village hall to the side.
Upon entering the flat you are greeted with a spacious central hallway and large double storage cupboard. There is also an airing cupboard which houses the hot water tank as well as providing slatted shelving for linen. The flat is heated by Dimplex night storage heaters as well as convector and wall mounted fan heaters. There is double-glazing in the form of the original sealed unit timber windows as well as some replacement double-glazing.
In the entrance hall there is a hatch to the loft space. To the left is a double aspect living/dining room; the window to the side provides a view of the tennis courts and village hall and the windows and Juliet balcony to the rear afford fantastic views of Shalford Common and pond and, to the right, views up to The Chantries. Off the living/dining room an arch leads to the kitchen which again has a window overlooking the tennis courts and comprises a range of matching base and eye level units with cupboards and drawers, under unit lighting and a tiled splash back. There is a built-in 4 ring electric hob with extractor fan above, built-in oven and fridge and space and plumbing for a washing machine.
Off the hallway in the other direction there are two good size bedrooms. The master bedroom features built-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom and has views of the pond and common, whilst a shower room serves the generous second bedroom which also enjoys the same outlook to the rear. Other benefits include communal gardens, parking for residents and visitors as well as a communal lounge and a laundry room.
Ashley Gardens represents a great opportunity for the over 60’s buyer perhaps looking to downsize or spend part of the year abroad but would like a base in the village. Viewing is highly recommended.
