Purchasing this property with A lifetime leaseThis property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise´s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property´s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.
For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £230,000, please contact Cubitt & West.
Property descriptionWhat makes the perfect apartment for first time buyers and rental investors? Is it location? Is it size? Is it condition? Well, this delightfully-presented flat has it all and other added features as well.
This home is centrally located in Shirley close to local shops, bars and restaurants, and also very conveniently situated for public transport.
Situated on the first floor, this home provides ample accommodation throughout. The spacious lounge will be great when you entertain friends and family, no matter what the occasion. Furthermore, the kitchen has all you could need to get stuck into the recipe books with plenty of units and worktop space.
The bathroom, which has been updated, is the ideal place for that well-earned soak after the day's events and when you need to take a rest, the bedroom has space for all your furniture as well as being very comfortable.
Being situated on Wickham Road, if you don't fancy cooking there are numerous eateries and take-outs on your doorstep. If you commute or fancy a shopping trip to London there are multiple buses to take you to East Croydon or Bromley, which have fast and frequent trains to London. It's not often you can find a home which has it all but with this one, we may just have found it for you!What the Owner says:As a first time buyer, this home was perfect for me due to the location being so accessible to everywhere, whether it was for work or socialising. The flat was also bigger than anything else that I viewed in the same price range.
During the time here I have enjoyed updating and maintaining the property and hope that the next buyers will enjoy this home as much as I have.
