The Property

Westport Manor is a landmark building in Malmesbury which was skilfully converted in 2011 into nine luxury apartments. The building lies in a Conservation Area towards the western edge of the town and has enjoyed an interesting past. Many Malmesbury folk will have attended Westport Manor either during its time as a boy's primary school in the early to mid 1900's, or more recently while it was the art department for the nearby secondary school. The students' paint and clay spatters are now all gone and the magnificent windows have been restored to their former glory. The stone work has been fastidiously cleaned and re-pointed, so the building should be good for another 200 years. The nine apartments are unique in Malmesbury, a brilliant combination of the best of both worlds - period aesthetics and the latest modern building standards. This has produced contemporary interiors that are specifically designed for the more discerning and sophisticated market. The property is currently let on a assured shorthold tenancy for £895 pcm but the current rental value is likely to be £975 pcm.

The Accommodation

There is a communal entrance door with intercom which leads to the 'easy going' stairs rising to the first floor. The private front door leads into a large kitchen/dining/sitting room. The kitchen has a built-in double oven plus an integrated fridge and freezer. The island unit/breakfast bar houses the hob which has an extractor over. There are two bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes plus a luxury shower room and bathroom with shower over the bath. In the lobby by the second bedroom are two built-in cupboards, one of which houses plumbing for a washing machine.

Outside

The communal gardens comprise areas of lawn to the front and rear of the property. The block paved driveway leads to allocated private residents' and visitor parking. There is a covered communal bicycle store and an enclosed and covered building for storage of the recycling and waste bins.

Tenure and Service Charge

A 125 year lease was created on 25/12/10 and the ground rent is £125 per annum. The building is managed by Azure Property Consultants and the service charge for 2021 is £136.66 per month. It includes buildings insurance, cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas, redecoration of the communal hall, the annual servicing of the fire alarm, cleaning of the refuse and bike stores, bi-monthly external window cleaning and auditing of the accounts. Payments are made on account throughout the year and reconciled after the year end.
