Property description

Substantial 3 bedroom ground floor apartment with impressive coastal views, private patio and garage. This property benefits from gas central heating and uPVC double glazing throughout and must be viewed internally to fully appreciate the space within.

Cliff Castle is a Grade II Listed Victorian property which originally comprised two houses which were later converted to character apartments. It is situated in an elevated position on the sea front and enjoys some of the finest sea and coastal views in Seaton with far reaching views sweeping across the bay to Beer Head and as far as Portland Bill.

Now offered with no onward chain, Flat 1 is a substantial 3 bedroom apartment which occupies half of the ground floor of Cliff Castle. This property would now benefit from some updating.

The front door opens into the entrance hall with doors leading off to the remaining accommodation. There is a sizeable walk-in storage cupboard with shelving, as well as an additional linen cupboard with slatted shelving.

The triple aspect living room is a spacious room situated to the front of the property and has a large picture window to the front which takes full advantage of the far-reaching coastal views. There is a variety of bespoke wooden shelving and drawers in this room, as well as a large bespoke windowsill which could easily be converted into a window seat. A French door to one side opens out to the private patio.
The kitchen has a matching range of base and wall units, with laminate worktops and integrated electric oven, with hob and extractor fan overhead. There is space and plumbing for two undercounter appliances, alongside additional space for a tall fridge freezer. The wall mounted Worcester gas central heating boiler is situated in this room.

This property benefits from three double bedrooms. Bedrooms one and two are both good-sized double rooms situated to the rear of the property with built in wardrobes and shelving, whilst bedroom 3 is a smaller double room which also benefits from built in wardrobes.

The main shower room is partially tiled, with a walk-in shower with tiled seat and glass screen, concealed cistern WC, wash hand basin set above a vanity unit as well as an obscured glass window.

To the front of the property is a private patio bordered to one side with stone walling, and low fencing to the other side. This south facing patio enjoys the far-reaching coastal views and can only be accessed by Flat 1.

Garage: This apartment benefits from a single garage with up and over door, power and light measuring 4.8m x 2.49m.

Share of freehold: This apartment benefits from a 1/10th share of the freehold, benefitting from a 999-year lease which commenced in December 1987. Service charges: There is a service/maintenance charge of £165 per calendar month which covers upkeep, cleaning and maintenance of communal areas and buildings insurance with any remainder going into a sinking fund. There is also an additional £50 per calendar month payable into the roof levy fund.
