Set within a fine grade II listed former orphanage in the heart of the city; a spacious and light filled 3 double bedroom, 2 bath/shower room second floor apartment in a sought after development, with an allocated parking space, visitor parking, well-maintained communal gardens and secure bike store.

Constructed in 1849, The New Orphan Home, as it was originally known, was converted in 2013 by Messrs "Charles Church". Nowadays called Allen House, this architecturally distinctive building enjoys the benefit of landscaped communal gardens with various sitting out areas.

Having high ceilings, tall double glazed multi-paned sash windows and very well-proportioned rooms, this dual aspect apartment, of circa 900 sq.ft., has a lovely feeling of light and space and enjoys elevated views.

There is a superb semi open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room (22ft x 22ft) with well-appointed kitchen featuring an integral oven, hob, extractor and dishwasher.

Three equal size double bedrooms are served by an en-suite to bedroom 1 together with a family bathroom.

Unusually for a modern development the apartment benefits from an allocated parking space, visitors parking, secure bike store, bin store and the aforementioned communal gardens.

Accommodation: entrance hall, bedroom 1 with en-suite shower room, 2 further double bedrooms (3 in total), semi open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room.

To be sold with no onward chain making a prompt move possible.
