Project Description

Hillview Gardens runs south from Finchley Lane (A504) and lies immediately to the west of the North Circular (A406) and the A1.

The subject property comprises a first floor flat with access being via an entrance at ground floor level. There is an opportunity to add value to the maisonette if it is refurbished. Equally, value can be added by doing an attic conversion. The maisonette is currently generating £30,000 per annum.

To the front of the first floor accommodation, there is a double bedroom with a bay window and adjacent to this there is a smaller front bedroom. Off the landing there is a room that has been divided to provide an additional bedroom.

To the rear of the accommodation there is a third bedroom over looking the rear garden. There is also a separate kitchen and bathroom.

The kitchen has vinyl floors, fitted base and eye level cupboards, stainless steel sink and drainer and part wood laminate flooring and part ceramic tiles. There is a free standing fridge freezer, space for a washing machine, Formica worktops, integrated hob and oven.

The bathroom has a bath, W.C, hand basin, electric shower over bath, vinyl floor covering and tiling is predominantly from floor to ceiling.
