NO ONWARD CHAIN. Characterful, two double bedroomed ground floor apartment in the fantastic former Lodge Moor Hospital estate that was originally built in 1888. Located in Underbank House, the new owners will benefit from gorgeous views over the well maintained communal gardens and incredible surrounding countryside.
Entrance to the property is through the communal entrance at the front of the building, which is also the location for the post-box. The apartment is located on the ground floor.
Entering the apartment on the left side of the hallway is the open plan kitchen/living/dining room. Upon entering your eye is immediately drawn to the large bay window at the far end of the room with floor-to-ceiling windows. The windows allow plenty of natural light to enter the room and provide views over the pristine communal gardens with incredible countryside in the background. At the other end of the room is the kitchen that has units above and below the worktop and extra storage is within the island unit. The island unit is brilliant for cooks as it means that whilst using the electric hob you're facing the bay window and there is also an overhang turning it into a breakfast bar when needed. In terms of appliances there is an electric oven, washer/dryer, dishwasher, under counter fridge, freezer and extractor above the electric hob.
Next along the hallway is bedroom two, whilst currently used as a home office this room is a double in size and has half a bay window. Across the hallway is a large cupboard that provides rarely seen valuable storage space for an apartment. Next to this is the main bathroom which has been modernised and compromises of a bath, washbasin and WC.
At the end of the hallway is the master bedroom, this room is a spacious double that also has half a bay window, next to the door to the en-suite are fitted wardrobes with room for storage above. The en-suite has recently been fully refurbished to a stunning standard with a large walk in shower, washbasin with storage underneath, WC with concealed cistern and towel radiator.
"WHAT THE VENDOR SAYS"
"We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Underbank. What initially attracted us to the property was that the conversion retained the floor to ceiling bay windows which, combined with the high ceilings, gives a spacious feeling throughout. These give a panorama of the views to the landscaped gardens and hills of the Peak District. We adore our new walk-in waterfall shower. It is a lovely place to refresh and is easy to care for. The apartment's location was ideal for us: easy access to the entertainments of the city centre; but on the cusp of the peaceful countryside with many great walks on the doorstep."
The property has gas central heating and is fully double glazed, the Worcester combi boiler is located in the kitchen. The service charge is £1,065 per annum. The lease started on 1st January 2002 and is for 999 years. There is an allocated parking space at the front of the property and plenty of spaces for visitors.
