Property Details

1 1 1
A fabulous bright and spacious first floor converted apartment offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain and one double bedroom. The apartment is for those who are over 55 years of age and is situated on the fringe of the town and just a short stroll to some wonderful countryside walks. The property also benefits from being on a bus route and is within easy reach of a cafe and public house, which serves food. A little further on there is a One Stop with post office, hairdressers and computer shop with the town centre and mainline train station being about a mile away. The house forms part of a Grade II listed brewery that was converted to individually designed retirement homes in the late 1980s. The apartment provides comfortable accommodation, flooded with plenty of natural light and enjoys a partial rural view from the rear as well as retaining character features, such as the wonderful pane glass sash windows and old fireplace. The property also has secondary glazing to the front, electric heating and an allocated parking space. The property would ideally suit an active over 55 or could lend itself as a lock up and leave UK base. A viewing is a must to truly appreciate what this lovely home has to offer as well as the location.
