A delightful, split level, three bedroom ex-local authority apartment with garden, occupying the ground and first floors of this well presented low-rise estate, in the heart of Kings Cross/Barnsbury borders, N1.
Benefitting from its own entrance above a small front patio and communal green space beyond, this homely property is an ideal offering for homebuyers or investors alike. Comprising a large rear reception with wooden floors, overlooking the attractively refurbished private patio garden, there is a semi-open plan kitchen, fully decked out with oak wood worktops, Smeg and Bosch appliances, including a 4-ring gas cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer (all included in the purchase price) and plenty of storage options; either under the stairs or via the additional cupboard located by the front door. The vendors installed a brand new Worcester boiler in 2013 which heats the house beautifully.
Upstairs boasts three double bedrooms (two very generous, the 3rd a queen double) with built in wardrobes and a separate, tiled bathroom with bath, WC and Aqualisa high pressure shower suite. The back garden offers attractive views of nearby trees beyond, whilst there is direct line of sight of the Shard from the upstairs bedrooms.
The vendors tasteful and practical refurbishment is evident throughout, resulting in a light, modernised, clean and welcoming home that doesn't require any further investment. The Bemerton Estate itself is also very well positioned for both Kings Cross and Islington; annexed on a quieter side road behind Copenhagen Street.
The property is under 15 minutes walk in either direction to Kings Cross & St Pancras International or Caledonian Road stations. Granary Square, Waitrose, Dishoom, Nike, Google and the heart of the exciting N1C regen zone are also under 10 minutes walk away. Angel Islington, Camden central and Bloomsbury are all within easy reach.
With 89 years 11 months remaining on the lease, the service charges are reasonable, alongside peppercorn ground rent. Islington have recently sent a proposed capital works estimate of circa £5-£6000 for minor cosmetic repairs and repainting to the exteriors. That is however the only major works consideration for you to factor in.
An exciting prospect indeed.
