Property Details

A delightful, bright first floor retirement apartment for those over 55 with one double bedroom, enjoying a lovely outlook over the communal gardens to Station Garden and woodland in the distance and offered for sale with no onward chain. 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 benefits from uPVC double glazing, electric heating and a 24 hour emergency care line. The complex has 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.
