UNDER OFFER....Gordon Miller Property Consultants are delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity of purchasing a turn-key Investment Property, which is a 2-bedroom top floor apartment located in area that has proved to be popular with property investors and owner-occupiers alike. Canterbury offers the perfect city lifestyle with the Whitefriars shopping complex, a selection of award winning restaurants such as Deesons and the Abode, which are perfect for pre-theatre dining before an evening at the Marlowe Theatre or Curzon cinema. Within walking distance of the apartment is Canterbury West Train Station, offering High Speed Link to London in under one hour. In the summer, you have the choice of many picturesque, award winning gardens to visit as well as the many cosmopolitan festivals such as the Canterbury International Art Festival or the Canterbury Food and Drink Festival located in Dane John Gardens.

The apartment is on the top floor of the building with no other apartments having access off the top floor landing. Being at the end of the building it benefits from a dual aspect and this enables the light to come flooding into the apartment. The views across the City of Canterbury, with the Cathedral in the distance, are superb and can be enjoyed from the lounge, kitchen and bedroom one.

The apartment was well-designed with the benefit of having a separate kitchen from the lounge (unlike many new properties), plenty of internal storage space and two good-size bedrooms. The double glazing, some of which has recently been replaced, and the Economy Seven Storage Heaters help ensure that the apartment is cost-effective to run.

21 Halstead Close has been let to the same tenant for a number of years and is managed ‘in-house’ under Gordon Miller Property Consultants Full Management package. The tenant, who is paying £625 PCM, has expressed an interest in staying on at the apartment post-completion. However, should you wish to have vacant possession then we can serve the tenant with 2-months’ notice.
