Full description:
We are delighted to offer for sale this spacious three bedroom apartment that is located on the second floor of this iconic block of only four similar size apartments. All four apartments have balconies overlooking Bedford’s sixty acre Victorian park to the front and benefit from a communal south facing rear garden that measures some 110 feet wide by 65 feet in depth. The total plot size exceeds a third of an acre. The residents share the freehold and all of the apartments benefit from a 999 year lease granted in June 1973.

The property has an in and out carriage driveway that provides access to the double integral garage and also to additional visitor parking spaces.

A large communal entrance hall offers access to a large store room, shared with just one other apartment, and access to a further smaller store and the garage. There is also access to the communal rear garden. The apartments are all reached from the communal entrance hall by stairs or via the lift.

Flat 4 has its own large entrance hall, with intercom, that gives direct access to all three bedrooms, the master has an en suite bathroom, a family shower room, the kitchen and the living room. The dining room is approached from either the living room or the kitchen.

Added benefits include gas fired central heating, double glazing and there is no onward chain.

Externally the gardens are an important feature of Park View being mature and well cared for and offering established flowerbeds, lawn and trees all cared for under the service charges.

Park Avenue is particularly well located for access to a wide range of facilities and within walking distance of Robinson Pool and Fitness centre, public tennis courts across the road, a Bugden store and The Park Pub & Kitchen, a popular ‘Gastro Pub’ on the corner of Park Avenue and Kimbolton Road. Bedford’s wide range of shopping and recreational facilities are a further walk away as is Bedford’s mainline railway station offering fast and frequent services to London’s St Pancras and beyond.

Bedford lies midway between Junction 13 of the M1 motorway and the Black Cat roundabout on the A1 and is well served by various relief roads.

Service charge – £4,800 per year
