The property is within literally minutes of the popular ‘village’ shops in Magdalen Road which boasts many independent retailers as well as cafes and restaurants. The property is also within easy reach of the RD&E Wonford, Heavitree Road as well as Nuffield Hospitals. In addition St Lukes campus is close by as is a choice of schools for children of all ages. The historic Quay where there is a choice of bars and cafes as well as opportunities for water sports is also within very easy reach where there are miles of walks and cycle paths along the river and canal. DIRECTIONS From the city centre take South Street and at the bottom bear left onto Magdalen Street, passing The Magdalen Chapter Hotel and following the road then taking the next turning right into Magdalen Road. Take the first turning on the right into Fairpark Road then take the first turning on the left which is the entrance to Ernsborough Court. For visitor parking pass in front of the elegant Victorian building to the far end and go right following the service lane around towards the rear and parking is on the left.

On the open market for the first time in nearly 20 years this is a very rare opportunity to purchase a superbly located ground floor purpose built apartment which provides very well proportioned and rather elegant accommodation which has fantastic potential for enhancement for the creation of a wonderful home right in the heart of the city. Located on the ground floor of this fine Grade II Listed building of Victorian origins this apartment is part of a fine development set in the grounds of the original Ernsborough Court building converted to apartments some years ago and part of the overall development which includes a more modern block to the rear and which is all managed together by Whitton & Laing. The accommodation is accessed by a communal entrance and then via its own entrance door to to a spacious lobby and then on to the huge entrance hall . The hallway provides access to the spacious accommodation including the massive and very elegant sitting room with its grand high ceiling, huge bay window with working shutters and views over the communal gardens including a door out to them too! There is a good sized kitchen, 2 good bedrooms and a shower room. The property is Upvc double glazed and there is night storage heating. Outside there are some attractive well looked after mature gardens, visitor parking and an exclusive parking space for this flat. This is a very rare opportunity indeed to acquire a large ground floor apartment which is unusually light and airy with high ceilings throughout as you’d expect in a building of this era. It is comfortable but has enormous potential for further improvement. Overall a potentially wonderful home in a fine location or possibly a wonderful investment!
