178 Victoria road really is our highest end property we own. Full renovation was completed in November 2019. The property was stripped back to bare brick and EVERYTHING is the property was replaced to the highest standard.
The renovation included roof fully relayed, full double glazing throughout, brand new full central heating system throughout, full rewiring of all new electrics. All walls were replastered, new staircases to prevent noise, added insulation and noise protection, plus all the additional features and finishes seen in the photos.
The property is located right next to the town centre, main shops only a 5 minute walk away. This is the most popular location for tenants. It caters for all the nationwide workers that like to be located town centre/old town but also all other professionals as it is so well linked to the bus station and town centre.
The property has been specifically built in accordance to tenants needs, hmo regulations and for durability and low maintenance.
The property has a separate plant room accessed from the lower ground floor at the front of the house. It contains a large unvented cylinder and boiler specifically to cater for the use of 9 people that can stay within the property. The boiler is a brand new Worcester boiler.
Also, on the lower ground floor at the front, is a bin store to keep all the rubbish neat and tidy. Along with secured area for storing bikes for the tenants.
The hallway has a built-in entrance door matt, with ceramic tiles perfect for high footfall and low maintenance. This leads down to the staircase which has vinyl laminate stairs that look really smart, but still provide a robustness for renting.
The lower ground floor provides a storage cupboard for hoover, mop, bucket, also contains data centre , wifi router and electric fuse board. As seen on the floorplans there is a utility area by the back door that leads to the garden, proving 2 washing machines and 2 dryers along with worktop for ease of use.
The back garden provides a nice communal area in the summer, with seating area. The garden is laid to AstroTurf for low maintenance, the enclosed garden gives the tenants privacy to relax and unwind.
The communal room has a beautiful bay window, dinning table and chairs, a large 4 seater sofa, 2 coffee tables, and a 50” smart tv on the wall with electric fire underneath for aesthetics. The rug and display unit of quirky items, along with the brick wall wallpaper and Aztec features throughout really provide a modern and chic feel to the house.
The kitchen has two integrated large fridge freezers , two hobs and two ovens. This provides plenty of storage and space needed for multiple tenants to be in the kitchen at the same time. There is ample base unit and wall units that provide all the utensils and storage needed for the tenants. (bare in mind room 4 and 6 have their own kitchenette with their own fridge freezer, and washer dryer along with additional storage. The small touches such as kickboard lights, spot lights throughout, built in bin and recycling bin , and ceramic wall tiles (easy to wipe down and maintain) all add to the high end feel of the house.
The communal hallways have censored lighting which work perfect for tenants, the grey woodwork with the grey doors really does setoff the original woodwork features of the house.
Each room has a key safe outside the door (to cover all lockouts without having to attend the property) more details of processes of how the house is run will be given upon handover to the buyer.
All the bedrooms have, solid built in bespoke mirror sliding wardrobes, with double rail storage and built in shelves and compartments. This gives a huge amount of storage and eliminates having to have bulky drawers within the room. The storage really does sell the rooms, ladies with lots of clothes really do love the amount of space all hidden neatly away. Each wardrobe also has storage for an iron and ironing board, so there is no sharing which eliminates calls. All items provided to the tenants would be included within the sale.
Each bedroom has data CAT5 cabling fully hard wired into the room, which laptops, computers or tvs can be wired into to provide a fast a and reliable connection.
The finishing on the rooms is 5 star, with chrome sockets throughout, wallpaper featured walls in every room, high quality stylish furniture, 32” Smart tvs in every room and made to measure custom blackout blinds.
The En-suite bathrooms really are a wow factor with this property. The en-suites are all very good sizes (double rooms have larger en-suites). They have full ceramic marble floor to ceiling tiling with built in bespoke mirror. The bathroom furniture is all made to match with high end grey finish and built in storage. The large rain head shower with detachable hose and waterfall taps really add to the the finish. These really are the sleekest hmo en-suites in Swindon and make the rooms really stand out.
The 2 studio (rooms 4 and 6) with kitchenettes-, provide all the same features of the other rooms but also have a sofa area to provide an additional area to relax. Room 4 actually has 2 x 32” smart tvs. The kitchenettes really do work well, reducing the use on the main kitchen and providing added privacy for the tenants. Although no fixed cooking appliances the kitchenette still provide, fridge freezer, sink, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, kettle, and additional storage cupboard. We have a waiting list for people looking to upgrade to these studios they are so popular.
This really is a show stopper and built for longevity to remain at the highest standard to demand a strong rental income for many years to come.
