Washington House, with origins believed to date back to 1850, commands a prominent, elevated position on Castle Hill with uninterrupted sea views. The grounds are surrounded by a stone wall and include a lovely communal lawned area to the front. The building itself is very well maintained and presented throughout and the apartment benefits from uPVC double glazed windows and gas fired central heating. Flat 1 has the benefit of an enclosed private courtyard with shed and pedestrian access to the front of the building. A communal entrance hall has a private, lockable cupboard which houses the consumer unit, electric meter and coat hooks. The front door to Number 1 opens to the entrance hall. Doors lead to all rooms from the hallway along with three good sized storage cupboards. The Living Dining Room is of a good size and takes full advantage of the views from a large window to the front. The fireplace has an inset gas log effect stove. The current owner has altered the floor to provide a higher level at the window end which was used as a study/office area. However, this could be easily reinstated to the original layout by any new purchaser if required. The kitchen is fully fitted but would now benefit from a bit of updating and has door to access the courtyard garden. There are two bedrooms with the master bedroom having large fitted wardrobes, one of which houses the gas central heating boiler. The bathroom is fully tiled with a white suite comprising bath, wash hand basin and WC. The apartment must be viewed internally to appreciate the superb view which is enjoyed from its elevated position.
