A leasehold studio flat ( 239 Sq Ft ) occupying the top floor of this imposing period property.
Sold with vacant possession.
Leasehold ( Residue of 999 years )
Management Fees of £105 pcm with active management company - ground rent included with management fee (refer to legal pack for further information)
This property occupies an enviable position just moments from Victoria Square which is a stunning and much loved green space in the heart of Clifton Village, just moments away from all the village amenities such as bars, restaurants, grocery shops and independent retailers.
Clifton Village is one of the most unique and sought after locations in the City. From its very early days as a Spa destination to the later Georgian and Victorian influences Clifton offers charm at every turn from the fine sweep of Royal York Crescent to the grandeur of Victoria Square. At its heart lies the picturesque “Village” offering an eclectic range of independent shops, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants including Cote, The Ivy and the Avon Gorge Hotel. The Downs offers four hundred acres of green public space and Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge provides a gateway to the Ashton Court Estate with its woodlands, mountain bike trails and walks whilst there is excellent access to the exciting Harbourside district, the City Centre and Temple Meads.
STUDIO FOR UPDATING
The flat has been let for many years ( now sold with vacant possession ) and now requires basic updating but would make a fine starter home or "bolt hole" .
The property ( once renovated ) has excellent rental prospects in this highly sought after location.
The short term lettings industry in Bristol is growing. Serviced studio apartments are in high demand all year round as they attract all types of guests, from business travellers during the week and tourists on weekends etc. Studio’s are particularly popular as these small boltholes offer guests the chance to stay in great central locations for very competitive prices (on average around 30% cheaper than a comparable hotel room). A serviced studio in a good location can achieve an average rate of around £60-£75 per night (after cleaning) with an average annual occupancy of around 90% if Let on a nightly rate. A serviced studio in a good location can achieve an average of around £1400 per calendar month if Let on a mid-term basis (minimum of 1 month)
Our fees for managing this apartment are 20% inclusive of vat
If you have any questions regarding the above please feel free to get in touch
Alternatively the flat would achieve circa £800 pcm for a traditional 6 -12 month AST let.
For full details of the EPC please refer to the online legal pack.
Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
