A well presented, 1st floor, 2 bedroom apartment within a period building with stunning sea views, parking and a good-sized outbuilding for storage.
Washington House, with origins believed to date back to 1850, commands a prominent and elevated situation on Castle Hill. Flat 3 occupies a first-floor position and as such enjoys stunning views. The panoramic view stretches over the communal gardens, Seaton beach and the sea. This lovely 2-bedroom apartment benefits from communal parking, gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazed windows throughout.
The present owners have improved and updated the apartment since purchasing. In particular they upgraded the kitchen, including installing a new oven, hob, fridge and slimline dishwasher along with new flooring. The apartment also has the benefit of a large storage shed, ideal for bikes or beach equipment etc.
There is a communal entrance door which opens to the communal hallway with stairs rising to the first floor with external private cupboard which houses the consumer unit and electric meter for Flat 3. The private front door opens to a long entrance hall with door to the living room which is a particular feature of this apartment with high ceilings and a large picture window which takes full advantage of the fabulous views. The good-sized master bedroom is directly behind this room with window to rear and fitted wardrobes. Accessed from the entrance hall is a deep airing cupboard and a couple of stairs continue down into the inner hall with further shelved cupboard and doors off to the fully fitted kitchen, bathroom with white suite and bedroom 2.
Both the bedroom and kitchen have a view from the window to the side with an attractive outlook across the town and beyond to the cliffs and countryside in the distance. It is very well presented throughout and must be viewed internally to appreciate its location.
