Property Details

2 1 1
An immaculately and beautifully presented ground floor apartment with direct access to outdoor space, offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain and designed especially for those over 55 years of age. The complex is 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 has been home to our seller for about two and half years, during this time it has been greatly improved with two new modern economy 7 electric heaters, new flooring throughout plus replacement work surfaces in the kitchen as well as a re-decoration throughout. In addition, the apartment benefits from uPVC double glazing 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.
