This property is 71 metres above sea level and not in a flood area. The River Soar runs adjacent to the railway station. It has burst it's banks on a few occasions over the past 37 years but a flood system was installed some years ago but the water level has never reached any higher than Riverside Way close to it's junction with Station Road. The owners do not have to pay an insurance surplus because of flood risks.
There are no, nor has there ever been, any neighbour disputes
The sale is because the couple who are selling, have been in the property since it was new in December 1982, and now wish to downsize. There are no other occupants
There has never been any reason to rewire the property.
Some curtains, all carpets, all ceiling fans and fitted lights are all included in the price as is the built in cooker, hob and extractor hood.
