This retirement complex makes a wonderful first impression with a grand period building at its centre flanked by modern extensions, all nestled in established garden grounds with private residents’ parking.
A secure shared entrance and lift service gives access to the flat, where an L-shaped hallway with fitted storage welcomes you in. A large living room, with lovely garden views towards the canal, offers ample floorspace for various furniture arrangements. An electric fireplace creates a homely focal point, whilst the neutral walls are framed by decorative coving. Next door, a spacious galley kitchen awaits. Fitted with a range of clotted cream-coloured wall and base units, the attractive kitchen benefits from incorporated space for a range cooker, tall fridge/freezer and an undercounter washing machine. It also enjoys lovely garden views and enough space for a bistro-style table and chairs. The property comes with two bedrooms – a generous double bedroom with fitted mirrored wardrobes and a smaller double, currently used as a dining room, also with fitted mirrored cupboards. A stylish modern shower room with a large walk-in shower, a matching WC-suite and fitted vanity storage, completes the accommodation. The property benefits from raised sockets, thermostat controlled electric heating and double glazing throughout.
As part of the development, residents have access to a communal lounge and conservatory, plus a guest suite, which can be booked for visiting guests. It comes with a lift service, an emergency call service, and a part-time house manager for peace of mind. The development sits in beautifully maintained garden grounds with private residents’ parking, all maintained by Trinity Factors at a fee of approx. £150 per month, which includes the buildings insurance, maintenance of internal and external communal areas and window cleaning.
