Property Details

2 1 1
A good sized top floor apartment with two decent sized bedrooms, enjoying views over rooftops to the hills and ideally located just a short stroll to the town centre where there is a range of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries as well as a variety of entertainment venues. The apartment is especially designed for those over 55 years and is presented in excellent condition benefiting from uPVC double glazing, electric heating and a 24 hour emergency care line. The complex benefits from a part time house manager, a residents lounge with kitchen area used for functions or for family gatherings, a guest suite available for overnight visitors at a nominal fee, attractive communal gardens with seating area and separate drying area and has parking, which is on a first come first served basis. The building also has a lift serving to the first floor. A viewing is strongly recommended to really appreciate the size, layout and how easily it would make a great lock up and leave UK base or as a main home for those looking for that additional support now and then.
