This neat and tidy, two-bedroom, mid-floor apartment with views over the leafy suburb of Hendon could be just the thing if youre looking for accommodation away from hurly-burly of central London but still within an easy commute. Surrounded by well-managed, communal gardens overlooking the fairways of Hendon Golf Club and bordered by mature trees and shrubs, the apartment block offers a better sense of open space than most but local amenities are also close by, including a couple of Zone 4 tube stations with direct links to Kings Cross and St Pancras, just a 40-minute train ride away.
Although located midway between the centre of both Hendon and Finchley, Fairview Court is also close to amenities in Mill Hill, offering a filling station, a sub post office, hairdressers, launderette, cafes and restaurants as well as a Waitrose superstore. However, the Brent Cross Shopping Centre is only a short bus ride or car journey away. Copthall Playing Fields, Sunny Hill Park and the Windsor Open Space are within an easy walk while, for those of a sporting nature, the Allianz Athletics ground and both Hendon and Finchley Golf Clubs are nearby. As well as the underground stations at Mill Hill and Finchley Central, local public transport connections also include bus stops on nearby Holders Hill Road while the proximity of both the M1 and the Great North Way make travel by car further afield relatively simple. Middlesex University is also not far while Hasmonean High School a secondary school catering for the local Orthodox Jewish Community and rated outstanding at its last Ofsted inspection is almost on the doorstep.
Fairview Court is surrounded by lawned gardens with mature trees bordering the site. The driveway to the apartments leads to a covered parking area as well as a block of single garages available to residents who require them. Entrance to the property is via a communal hallway with lifts and stairs.
Awarded a C rating on its EPC, the property includes double glazing and is fitted with a gas-fired central heating system, controlled by room thermostat. The door from the external corridor opens onto hallway with storage cupboard. Internal doors lead to both bedrooms, the main reception room as well as the bathroom. The living room/diner is fitted with wood-effect laminate flooring, matched elsewhere throughout the property. Modern adjustable spotlights illuminate the room, with an internal door opening onto the kitchen. The room includes a second in-built storage cupboard while a glass-panel external door lets in extra light and leads to the spacious balcony, with room for a table and chairs with views over Hendon. The fitted kitchen is equipped with an electric hob with oven beneath and the necessary plumbing for both a dishwasher and washing machine. A dedicated space for an upright fridge-freezer is incorporated into the design while the worktops space includes a handy, fold-away breakfast bar. Base and wall units offer plenty of storage space while a composite stainless steel sink with rinser bowl and drainer is located beneath a large window. The property has two double bedrooms, the smaller of the two including another in-built wardrobe. The larger one – with a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the balcony is currently used as an office. The modern, fully-tiled house bathroom is equipped with oval sink with a washstand, a storage cupboard beneath and mirrored medicine cabinet above. The bath has a shower fitted over as well as glass splash screen while the WC includes the option of a water-saving flush.
In our view, this is a property which would best suit a young professional or a couple working in the capital – although an investor with an eye on the buy-to-let market may also wish to take a closer look. As ever, wed thoroughly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate both the standard of accommodation on offer and the convenient north London location.
