A ONE-BEDROOM apartment is one of the cheapest non-retirement properties up for sale in Penarth.

The apartment in Stanwell Road has been listed since August 2, with offers of more than £150,000 will be considered.

Described on Rightmove as a "perfect opportunity for first time buyers or investors", the property is being sold without a chain.

However, the listing warns that the apartment requires modernisation throughout.

Penarth Times:

The double bedroom has a shower included.

The first floor apartment does have quirks, such as the combined shower room and bedroom.

The bedroom is spacious, a double bed could easily be fit in there, though some might find it odd that there is a shower in there instead of it being an en-suite.

Penarth Times:

The only toilet in the flat.

There is a separate toilet without a sink in the flat.

The carpeted kitchen has wall and base units comprising of a tap, sink and extractor.

Penarth Times:

The kitchen is a bit of a squeeze.

The most impressive part of the flat is the lounge, which is quite large for a property of this type.

An electric fire and sash windows at the front of the property are the main features of the lounge.

The lounge includes a fireplace and sash windows

Although the property is shared, the listing does hint that there are outside spaces for owners of the first floor flat to enjoy.
