Property Summary

We are delighted to offer for sale this extremely well-proportioned three bedroom second-floor apartment that is set within the impressive Stoneygate Court, offered with no onward chain.

Full Details

The elegant, baronial-styled red brick building was constructed in 1931 by the Norwich Union on the historic site of The Shrubbery, which was built in 1845. The apartment provides plenty of space with a fitted galley kitchen, a good sized bathroom, an entry phone system, a lift to all floors and double glazing, sitting in beautifully maintained communal grounds and gardens with mature trees, hedges and shrubbery as well as a variety of seating areas.

A sweeping tarmac driveway guides you up to the front of Stoneygate Court. The front door with a carved stone façade above opens into the communal hallway where you will find stairs and a lift to the second floor. As you enter the apartment, the living accommodation is accessed via a long central hallway that has a large cupboard at the end.

Immediately on the right of the front door is the cloaks cupboard and adjacent is the part-tiled galley kitchen which has a range of wall and base units with composite work surfaces above. There is an enamel sink with a drainer on the side and a mixer tap. Integrated appliances include an oven with a halogen hob and extractor hood above, and a fridge/freezer, while there is also space for a washing machine.

On the left of the hall is the dining room which has charming twin-glazed doors that open into the living room. Along with bedroom two, all three rooms have a rear aspect overlooking the fabulous gardens. Next to the kitchen is the third bedroom while at the end of the hall is the principal bedroom which features a walk-in wardrobe, both with a front aspect.

The part-tiled family bathroom with a wood floor has a white suite comprising a panelled bath with mixer tap, shower attachment and glass shower screen, a pedestal wash hand basin with a mirrored cabinet above, a low-level WC and a heated towel rail.

Along the sweeping driveway are ample parking spaces and within a block close to the apartment, which is accessed through a baronial archway to the right of the building, there is a single garage. A particular feature of this location are the fabulous garden and grounds. There is a spectacular array of well-established borders, shrubs, hedges and trees providing a haven for wildlife, along with various peaceful seating areas for all residents to use.
