Finding an Apartment

A:
Hi, what can I do for you?
M:
I'm interested in the apartment in Marine Drive. What can you tell me about it?
A:
It's a conversion on the second floor of a beautiful, four-storey building. It has two bedrooms and a large living room overlooking the sea. The kitchen and bathroom have recently been re-fitted.
M:
Is it centrally heated?
A:
Yes, it's centrally heated throughout, and double-glazed too.
M:
Does it have a parking space?
A:
No, but there's plenty of unrestricted parking in Marine Drive and nearby.
M:
How much is it?
A:
It's $139,995, but I believe the owner would be willing to accept an offer.
M:
How long is the lease?
A:
There's no lease, it's a condominium.
