The flat is located in a separate building with only one other flat and a townhouse. From the private parking area, a covered porch area leads to the communal front door, which opens into the entrance hall serving the two flats. Here two short flights of stairs rise to the first floor.

Communal Grounds & Summerhouse

The summer house is of timber construction with windows giving a panoramic view over Lynmouth Bay, making it another delightful place to sit and relax.
Share of Freehold
The flat is held on a lease originally of 125 years. The flat owner owns one 33rd share of the company set up to own the freehold.
All exterior maintenance, up-keep of the grounds and buildings insurance is covered by an annual service charge. We believe the charge was around £1,600 last year.
To ensure the privacy and quiet enjoyment of the residents, the 33 owners of Castle Heights voted in 2017 not to allow holiday letting of the individual properties within the Castle Heights development. The properties can be let on assured shorthold tenancies. They can also be used on a non-commercial basis by family and friends, but may not be formally rented as holiday lets.
