Princes Court is an architect-designed development of 14 apartments situated in the sought-after location of central Corbridge and within easy walking distance of village amenities. The property, developed by Countylife within the village conservation area, has a traditional façade combined with contemporary architecture. The apartments are built over a secure basement car park and set within landscaped, communal gardens.
An entry phone system at the main entrance gives access to a communal entrance hall which leads to an inner hall. Off the hallway an impressive three-story atrium-style hall gives secure access to the communal gardens, elevator and staircase to the upper floors.
The front door to 11 Princes Court, a penthouse apartment, opens into a large reception hall and leads harmoniously to the spacious open plan living accommodation which lends itself to clearly-defined sitting and dining areas. High-quality oak flooring runs throughout the kitchen which is fitted with a range of wood-fronted units, complementary granite work surfaces, Belfast sink, integrated ceramic hob, extractor, combination microwave/grill/oven, fridge/freezer, secondary oven and dishwasher. Sliding doors from the dining area of the reception room lead onto a private, south facing enclosed decked balcony with glazed veranda whilst two windows and automatic skylights to the front and reception hall flood the room with natural light.
The master bedroom also benefits from sliding doors onto the balcony along with an en-suite shower room, which is attractively tiled and benefits from under floor heating. The suite comprises a walk-in shower, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC. The guest bedroom to the front of the property benefits from a Jack & Jill en-suite, also accessed from the reception hall and comprising a contemporary suite of bath with shower over, wash hand basin and WC. Off the hall is a utility room which houses the boiler and is plumbed for a washing machine. A useful storage cupboard completes the accommodation.
Note: There is a maintenance charge of £175 per month and a resident’s management company in which each apartment has one vote. The maintenance charge covers insurance of the building and communal area charges for water and electricity, cleaning of communal internal areas, the building exterior, car park, communal gardens and external parking areas.
In addition to the private decked balcony, the penthouse apartment benefits from communal gardens to the rear, beautifully landscaped with lawn, paved paths and terraces with benches, together with mature planting.
There are two designated car parking spaces in the secure underground car park which is accessed through electronically controlled gates off Princes Street. A practical storage cupboard is located to the rear of the spaces. In addition, there are three visitor’s car parking spaces, one underground and two external, available for the block of apartments. There is a water point outside the underground garage.
