Enjoying a fabulous position, close to the town centre and mainline railway station is this well proportioned one double bedroom top floor apartment that has been especially designed for those over 60.

The apartment itself has uPVC double glazed windows and electric heating. Viewing is vital to really appreciate this lovely home, the lifestyle on offer and the location, which is within an easy walk to the mainline train station, leisure centre and doctor and dentist surgeries with the town centre also within close proximity and offering a range of shops and entertainment venues.
