A larger than average one bedroom conversion flat forming the whole ground floor of an attractive Victorian detached building, including the private front garden. Some internal updating required / offered with full vacant possession.

Situated in a quite cul-de-sac location, the building consists of only two flats, accessed via a small communal entrance porch.   Internally, the flat offers excellent room proportions and high ceilings, and represents a good opportunity as a project for the incoming purchaser to implement their own design ideas.  

Offering a sizeable floor area over 580 sq. ft., the accommodation comprises a large double-length reception room (measuring approx. 21' x 11') with fireplace, and internal lobby opening into a good size kitchen to include a built-in oven, hob, extractor and fridge / freezer.   Next to the kitchen is a fully tiled bathroom with W.C, basin and shower over the bath.  To complete the accommodation there is a large double bedroom (16' x 12') with bay window and wardrobes.  Additional features including wood style flooring to the living room and gas central heating operated via combi-boiler. 

This flat is comparably bigger than others in its price range, as such, there is scope to revisit the internal layout and increase the value by converting the existing kitchen to bedroom, and relocating the kitchen to the double reception room, thus creating stylish open plan kitchen / living space.  These works are of course subject to landlord and local authority consent.

Externally:  Private front garden enclosed by picket fence. 

Location:  Gladstone Road is a peaceful cul-de-sac situated within a 12 minute walk of Norbiton train station, offering direct access into London Waterloo. Local independent shops are located within a 5 minute walk and Kingston town centre is easily accessible on foot.   Kingston upon Thames is an ancient market town offering extensive retail shopping facilities, open markets, riverside restaurants, cafes and coffee shops as well as the green open spaces of the Fairfield recreation ground and Richmond Park.  The area is well served by transport links with Norbiton and Kingston railway stations offering connections to central London terminals and further destinations as well as superb bus and road links.

Tenure:  Held on a 99 year lease, effective 23rd December 1982.   Subject to negotiation the seller is willing to convey the property with a newly extended lease term - further details available upon request.  

Ground Rent:  Currently £50 p.a.
