Beautifully decorated and boasting a large rear garden, this ground-floor apartment in Finchley, north of London, is close to local amenities but also just a few minutes walk from parks and woodland. Immaculately presented in a modern style, it offers ready-to-move into accommodation in a popular residential area within easy reach of the capital and its attractions.
To the left is a useful cupboard while to the right is the lounge, which has a wooden floor and large windows across the width of one wall to make the most of natural light. The eye is caught by the large feature fire surround, in cast iron with decorative carvings. This is flanked by fitted shelves and cupboards to either side, offering always-welcome storage space. The fireplace itself is covered with a mirrored panel, and there is a tiled hearth. Also on the right side of the hall are two bedrooms, both with wooden floors and built-in wardrobes with full-length mirrored doors. Ahead is the kitchen, fitted out in a contemporary style with cream-fronted high and low-level cupboards and drawers, modern black work tops and brick-tiled walls. There is a built-in oven and gas hob with brushed-steel splashback and extractor hood over, plumbing for a washing machine, and sink with drainer and mixer tap. Illumination is provided by recessed ceiling spotlights with supplementary under-unit lighting, and there is room for a dining table and chairs. Through the kitchen is the bathroom, which has predominantly tiled walls and a shower cubicle with power shower, glass door and splash-screen, a bath and pedestal hand basin. A door to one side opens into the separate toilet.
The property has a small garden to the front, shielded from the main road by a low wall and hedge. A stone path leads to the front door. To the rear, the large garden has a decked area and a lawn, along with some mature trees and established plants, and is fenced at either side for privacy.
The property is conveniently located for a wide range of facilities, including a Tesco Extra, BP fuel station, Finchley Memorial Hospital, pharmacy and local takeaways. Finchley Lido Leisure Centre, with a swimming pool, gym and fitness classes, is close by, as is the Vue North Finchley cinema complex, Hollywood Bowl Finchley ten-pin bowling and amusement arcade, and fast-food outlets including Nandos and McDonalds. Those who enjoy spending time in the countryside with or without a dog will be pleased to learn that Glebelands Open Space and Wood Nature Reserve are just a few hundred metres away, while Victoria Park has a playground, café and tennis courts as well as being popular with joggers and walkers. Local education facilities are excellent nearby Manorside Primary School and Tudor Primary School are currently rated outstanding and good respectively by Ofsted, while The Compton School for those aged 11 16 is also outstanding. The North Circular road is nearby and local bus routes run along the street outside. The nearest Tube station is Finchley Central, on the Northern line, offering access to the wider underground network.
The property is double-glazed and has a gas-fired central heating system with radiators to all rooms.
