The flat is perfect for a first-time buyer or an investor seeking a hassle-free buy to let property. The property is currently tenanted with a gross annual rental yield of £18,000.
The property has been recently updated with a modern kitchen and bathroom suite and bamboo flooring throughout. The two large double bedrooms both feature the high ceilings and windows you’d expect from a period property, with the first bedroom enjoying a triple aspect bay window to the front and the second bedroom enjoying views onto the private rear garden. Both bedrooms have space for a large bed and have a range of built-in bookshelves and storage units.
A light and sunny kitchen/sitting room is at the rear of the property and has double patio doors which lead out onto the private garden. The modern IKEA kitchen has plenty of storage and generous work surfaces for food preparation. There is an integrated washing machine and free-standing fridge/freezer. Gas central heating and hot water are supplied by a combi-boiler. There’s also a modern bathroom with grey tiled floor, bath with overhead shower, sink and WC.
Outside, the property has its own private walled courtyard garden, accessed through double patio doors from the sitting room, perfect for entertaining on a summer’s day!
Harlesden is following nearby Kensal Rise in becoming one of the most up and coming areas of West London.
