3C Packhorse Road is a very centrally located three bedroom maisonette located above Neville Johnson Furnishings in the heart of the town centre. The property is currently tenanted and due to its location this property would make an ideal investment opportunity or indeed a first-time purchase.
We are informed by the Landlord that the property will be given a new lease of 125 years. This will be on a peppercorn ground rent. Maintenance charge to be advised.
Approaching the property from the entrance to the public car park off Packhorse Road, one turns left before hitting the car park area, an open staircase that leads to four apartments. From here 3C enjoys a gate onto a rooftop garden that is defined by fencing and a wall. The property enjoys its own front door that leads onto an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and facing over the front elevation is the large living room. Also on this level is a fitted kitchen whilst on the second floor there are three bedrooms and a white bathroom suite. The property benefits from sealed unit double glazed windows and a gas fired central heating system. Whilst there is no parking allocated to the property there are numerous public car parks around the town centre, most immediately one that lies behind the shops.
The property is located above what is currently Neville Johnson Furnishings which lies at the southern end of Gerrards Cross high street. A soon to be open Journeyman restaurant/bar lies across the way on the other side of Packhorse Road, whilst Wildwood pasta and pizza is within 75 yards of the scheme. West Common with its open green space, as well as woodlands and ponds, lies a very short walk away as is the station, which offers a fast and frequent service to London Marylebone (the journey time taking from 18 minutes into central London).
Gerrards Cross offers a thriving town centre with two high street supermarkets along with numerous boutique style shops, cafés and eateries as well as an Everyman cinema. Being located within South Buckinghamshire there are an exceptional range of schools within the local area and the town sits within the catchment area for numerous grammar schools. For those wishing to commute by road there is straight forward access onto the M40 at either Beaconsfield or Denham and from here the A40 runs into Central London. The M25 is a short drive away and surrounds the capital whilst giving access to London Heathrow Airport, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted.
From the Gerrards Cross office of The Frost Partnership proceed on foot in a southerly direction along Packhorse Road, crossing over at the pedestrian crossing and proceeding to the entrance to the public car park where the stairs may be found on the left hand side.
