Lower ground floor flats are not always that bad and in many cases offer a surprising and pleasing option when purchasing a property in Central London. There are in fact a number of advantages....
Space/Size Storage Somtimes you get slightly more space for slightly less money than you may pay for a flat on an upper floor of the building. Many basement flats (not all) have their own entrance and often have a useful storage area under the front steps of the house.
Outside space Depending on the building’s architecture, the basement flat can sometimes have direct access to the patio/garden at the back of the building. These outside spaces can be both private or communal.
Natural light. Contrary to belief, basement flats are not all gloomy. Many have large windows allowing natural light to filter in.
Summary Basement flats can be a good option to consider if you are seeking that little bit of extra space, private entrance and outside space which in today’s world has become so important. You may even get some decent natural too!
