This unrented, well-located apartment is on the first floor of an attractive building which was built in around 1910. The high quality construction and perfect layout is perfect for renters, owner-occupiers and forward thinking investors.
The building is five storeys tall, and is part of a large development with 17 entrances on a 7,800 sq m plot. The large green central courtyard, with its old trees, offers a place to spend spare time, but is also practical for drying washing, as a providing a cycle parking area.
The apartment, which faces the street, comprises a large living room with kitchen at one end; a small storage room; and a bathroom with bathtub and window. The balcony is west-facing.
The housing development, which is managed by a co-operative of apartment owners, was last fully renovated in 1978. Since then, regular maintenance has taken place, with partial renovations taking place as necessary. In 1995, the facades were fitted with thermal insulation; an ongoing programme of roof refurbishment began in 2014, and is set for completion in 2018. The financing of this project came from the building’s sinking fund, and no additional contributions will be necessary. The property is well maintained and fully habitable. There are no other large building projects planned by the management company.
The apartment requires an initial investment of around 30,000€ to bring the apartment up to date. The following estimates give a rough idea of the cost breakdown:
Rewiring: 7,000,- , New bathroom 8,000,- ,Floors and walls 10,000,- ,Other repairs to doors and windows 5,000,-.
