2 Bedroom Ground Floor Flat (Now Let)
Flat A Millcote, 18 Mill Road, Eastbourne
I am a private landlord and refurbished this property in 2013 to a very high standard. I am looking for a good tenant(s) to appreciate and look after it. There are no administration fees or any charges saving you hundreds of pounds. I believe in a good deal for tenants.
The flat is located in a really nice character position in Mill Road on the corner of Kings Avenue in the Upperton area of Eastbourne. Millcote is a purpose built apartment block built in 1985 and kept in character with the surrounding houses. It has a fitted high spec kitchen including a new high energy efficient gas boiler in 2013. The entire flat has been modernised with updated bathroom, carpets, and new white panel doors. There are silver venetian blinds to all windows.
It is spacious, bright and attractive on a well run development which contains only 4 flats. 2 per floor. 2 flats are owner occupied and 2 are tenanted.
From the road there are 6 steps leading to the front door. There is a communal entrance hall with entry phone. The front door is a short walk along the hall.
There are UPVC double glazed windows throughout the flat. The kitchen is 2.97(9ft 9in) x 2.08m (6ft 10in) has been replaced and finished to a high specification with energy efficient appliances. The kitchen has an opening to the lounge making it a more modern open plan living space. There is a full size 50/50 Indesit fridge freezer and washer/dryer. As can be seen in the pictures there is a modern gas hob with electric fan oven. There is a powerful stainless steel cooker hood vented to the outside. There are slate coloured ceramic tiles to the floor. The sockets and light fittings are a modern brushed stainless effect. There is a good number of units providing great storage.
The flat is dual aspect and south facing and very sunny.
The flat benefits from a condensing high efficiency gas combination boiler and central heating.
The double aspect lounge is 4.90m (16ft 1in) max x 3.66m(12ft) it has a bay window plus two more making it very bright. TV point. Matt white walls with a hessian coloured feature wall.
The bathroom is bright with large white tiles with a mosaic mirror glass border. It has a modern back to the wall toilet with soft closer seat. The bath is extra wide (750mm) and has a special shower area with a screen. There is a powerful well balanced thermostatic shower mixer unit. The floor has slate coloured ceramic tiles. There is a heated towel rail radiator and a mirror and light over the basin. There is a shaver socket for shavers and electric tooth brushes on the shelf.

The flat is conveniently located for walking to Eastbourne District Hospital, local colleges, schools and transport links to Eastbourne Town centre. There is a bus service outside in Mill Road.
The energy performance rating (EPC) is C which was rated before appliance and condensing boiler upgrade. The recommended improvements carried out would I believe make it a B when reclassified. Band C Council tax.
This is truly a great property in a great location. A deposit and references will be required. It is suitable for full time professionally employed or retired persons. Sorry no pets.
As the property has been let since 2013 it will be redecorated before the new tenancy.
One big financial saving is as a private landlord (National Landlords Association) I do not charge for credit and referencing checks. I also make no charge for contracts and check in and out which saves hundreds of pounds. I believe in a fair deal for tenants. Rent will need to be paid by standing order in advance. Authority for credit checks will be required.
A £300 holding deposit will be required which will be returnable once contracts are signed.
