Description


Note: This OpenRent Property Is No Longer Available For Rent. Description below is only for reference, and you can no longer book a viewing or contact this private landlord.
This entire bright & spacious private modern ground floor apartment can now be rented for just £147 per week (no added fees or charges) and has just been fully redecorated to a very high standard throughout in readiness for the next tenancy....

A lovely & bright unfurnished ground floor one-bedroom purpose-built apartment with private parking (built just 8 years ago) situated to the rear of this modern development of just eight exclusive apartments, giving a high degree of privacy & security (all of the apartments are owned & managed by the same Landlord). Situated just 2.5 miles west of Birmingham City Centre where property rentals are a lot more expensive (location: B66 post code)

RENT THIS APARTMENT FROM THE LANDLORD DIRECT - UNLIKE LETTING AGENTS, THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO ADMIN FEES OR EXTRA CHARGES TO NEW TENANTS - JUST £20 FOR REFERENCE & CREDIT CHECK AND THAT IS ALL!

The great thing about this particular apartment is that it is accessible via a private under-pass to the rear of the development and is set within a separate block of just two apartments - ideal for a young/single tenant or a couple who just want peace and quiet and a property which can be left totally securely during the day.

This apartment is purpose-built, so the layout is so much better & larger than other rental properties in the local area, which are mostly either converted houses, ex-council or very dated flats above shops (all with no parking!) - so this property really does stand out from all the others! The room sizes are also generally larger.

The entire property has just been totally re-decorated throughout, so it both looks and feels like a brand new home from top to bottom...

Being such a modern property, it has many great refinements & features, to include:

  • Purpose built, modern block (built just 8 years ago) located in the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac
  • Fully UPVC double-glazed throughout and gas central heating (hot water on-demand - combination boilers)
  • Located to the rear of the property (in a block of just two apartments) giving a high degree of privacy & security
  • Private, secure & fully enclosed car park, providing plenty of parking for each resident
  • Security entry-phone system with remote unlocking for main door from internal telephone handsets
  • Motion-sensor LED lighting systems to both exterior & internal hallways (recently redecorated)
  • Open-plan, modern kitchen with integral oven, hob & extractor. 
  • A brand new frost-free fridge freezer and Indesit washing machine are also provided
  • Modern white bathroom suite with shower/shower screen
  • All floors are oak laminate throughout with fully tiled bathroom floors
  • Bedroom size is above-average - very well proportioned double bedroom with large recess/storage area
  • All rooms are bright, warm & spacious. French doors & side windows to the Lounge, giving plenty of natural light.
  • Open outlook (with trees!) to both front and rear - unusual for a property so close to a City centre.
  • A peaceful & quiet place to live, away from main roads - easy access, private parking, long-established neighbours
Initially offered on 6 month renewable Assured Shorthold Tenancy - this is a long-term let so the initial term can be extended indefinitely if the initial six-month term goes well. Please note that this property is being let UNFURNISHED.

Please be sure to view the video tour of this property (at the end of the photographs/slide show) as this is the best way to get a really good feel for this superb apartment.

With windows to all three sides, this property is very bright and benefits from full combination-boiler gas central heating & limitless hot water on demand in addition to full UPC double glazing. This is also the only apartment in the block which has french doors in the Lounge.

The property has a modern fitted kitchen with built in cooking appliances & a brand new fridge-freezer and washing machine. The bathroom comprises a modern white suite with a decent quality shower (fitted 3 months ago) and a glass shower screen.

Room sizes are as follows:

  • Very long/bright hallway: 19'2" x 4'0"
  • Lounge/Kitchen area: 18'2" x 14'8"
  • Bedroom: 16'5" (into recess) x 10'8"
  • Bathroom 7'0" x 6'5"
  • Private & secure allocated car parking
Properties very rarely become available at Arcadia Mews - the entire block is owned & managed by the same Landlord, who takes a lot of pride in the ownership, maintenance & management of the block. Consequently most of the existing tenants are very happy & well-settled, so this is a great place to live, as any of the existing residents will tell you!

Unlike converted houses or flats above shops/commercial premises (most of which are quoting similar rents!), these apartments are purpose-built and the room sizes and layout of the accommodation on offer is therefore so much better (and more modern) than most other properties in the local area. 90% of alternative properties are located on or very close to main roads, which are noisy and with only very limited on-street parking, which is often very congested.

The best reference you can get for a property at Arcadia Mews is simply by speaking to any of the existing residents/tenants - ask them how happy they are living at Arcadia Mews and how happy they are with the rapid & excellent service they receive from their Landlord!

With extremely low running costs (Council Tax band 'A') and the best excellent efficiency ratings (Energy Performance Certificate 'B' rated) these properties cost very little to run and offer excellent levels of security when unoccupied.

There is a large/spacious forecourt to the front of the property which is secure/located in the corner of the cul-de-sac. 2 x large commercial bins are provided which offer at least double the capacity needed by the eight apartments. Large recycling bins are also provided - one for each apartment.

To be eligible to rent this property, prospective tenants must be able to provide satisfactory references (employer & previous Landlord) and pass a credit check fully (or provide a suitable guarantor). Ideally suited to a couple of working professionals, the rental rate equates to just £320 per month per person (or just £74 per person per week), which is less than what you might pay for a single room n a house share/home of multiple occupancy - this is obviously a much better option! A deposit equivalent to 6 weeks rent will be held securely by the DPS (Deposit Protection Service) for the duration of the tenancy. A suitable guarantor may also be considered if the outcome of your credit check & references show that this might be necessary to support your application to rent this property. Kindly enquire if you would like to discuss your current situation/circumstances before you arrange a viewing.

Due to the quality of accommodation being offered, and giving consideration to all other current residents, who are all long-established & well-settled working/professional tenants, please note that working/professional tenants are preferred. Single-occupier students with a guarantor (no multiple occupancy - mature students preferred who can prove finance/affordability) and DSS/Council support applicants will also be considered with a guarantor. Smoking is prohibited inside the building or in any of the apartments. Pets are also not permitted.

NO ADDITIONAL FEES ARE CHARGED TO TENANTS FOR TAKING UP A TENANCY AT ARCADIA MEWS OTHER THAN £20 PER APPLICANT (PAYABLE TO OPENRENT) FOR CREDIT CHECKS,EMPLOYER & PREVIOUS LANDLORD REFERENCES - THESE ARE THE ONLY CHARGES WHICH APPLY AND THEY ARE VERY REASONABLE. THE OPENRENT 'RENT NOW' SERVICE PROVIDES ALL REFERENCES AND THE TENANCY AGREEMENT. OPENRENT ALSO HOLD THE INITIAL DEPOSIT & RENT PAYMENT UNTIL YOU HAVE MOVED IN AND ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR ACCOMMODATION.

This property is available for a long-term let but will be initially let on a 6 month Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) with an option for a longer renewal if all goes well. Please call (or message)to enquire or to arrange a viewing.
