A light and spacious, one bedroomed top floor apartment in quiet location tucked away off the High Street.
DESCRIPTION This first floor apartment, one of only four in this purpose-built block, is tucked away off the High Street in Staplehurst. Built in the late 1970s, Crown Court comprises two ground floor, and two first floor, one-bedroom apartments. The apartments share a communal front door at street level and internal carpeted staircase. The apartment is wonderfully quiet for such a central location, and offers designated off-road parking for one car with an additional shared visitor's parking space.
The property currently has approximately 60years remaining of a 99year lease – but the vendors will have obtained a 999year lease extension on the apartment prior to a sale (in line with all the other apartments in the block). Additionally the property owns a quarter share of Crown Court's freehold. The annual service charge for 2020 amounted to £400, which includes building insurance, ground rent (£1), and lighting of communal areas. The block is managed by the freeholders (Blockphase Residents Management Ltd).
The property is set within the popular Wealden village of Staplehurst with its range of local amenities including post office, supermarket, primary school and mainline station providing commuter services to London Charing Cross, Waterloo, London Bridge and Cannon Street (approximately 55 minutes). The County town of Maidstone is approximately 9 miles away providing a wider range of both shopping and leisure facilities.
