Obelisk Road, Finedon


A purpose-built first floor 1 bedroom flat in a small development of just 8 flats that were originally built by the local authority in the late 1970s to provide comfortable sized accommodation for a couple or single occupier. The property has been privately owned since 2007 with the current owner occupying the flat.

The design and layout of the property was well thought out and provides a generous living room with adjoining kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and good storage (walk-in store room, built-in cupboards and loft access). Modern comforts include gas radiator central heating and UPVC double-glazing. Whilst there is a small communal residents ' car park, spaces are not allocated and the flat therefore has no private designated parking provision. Parking is otherwise generally available on-street within the neighbourhood locality.

There is no garden to maintain which makes this a great lock-and-leave property and so would suit a buyer who has an active social life or likes to travel etc. The position is very convenient with good road links to the A15/A45 and a local rail service from Wellingborough to London St Pancras taking around 55 minutes. The flat is within a few minutes walk of a local Co-op store and there are many other small shops and businesses within Finedon.
