The Property

17 Norfolk Heights is a fabulous first floor apartment in the iconic Norfolk Heights development.  It is beautifully presented with two grand arched windows dominating the main open plan living space and flooding it with light.  There are two double bedrooms and a stylish shower room to the rear of the flat.  The apartments benefit from the manicured communal gardens and grounds surrounding the building, including a large residents parking area and drying green.

The apartment is accessed via a broad staircase to the first floor landing, with the front door leading to the hallway between the main living space and bedrooms.  The open plan living / kitchen / dining space is flooded with light from the twin arched windows to the front of the property, making the most of the far reaching countryside views beyond.  This living space is well laid out and beautifully presented, with the kitchen area to the rear of the room, with a breakfast bar for dining.

The two double bedrooms lie to the rear of the apartment with windows out to the rear of the property over the gardens, parking area and countryside.  The family shower room is stylish, with newly fitted bathroom furniture and tiling, mains pressure shower, WC and heated towel rail.
