Flat 27 Homeroyal House, 2 Chalmers Crescent is a retirement flat offering well-presented interiors and light-filled accommodation, including a generous living/dining room and a well-appointed kitchen, in addition to private residents’ parking.
Residents must be aged over 60, or as a couple, one can be 60 and one 55 years of age. Prospective residents would also need to meet the house manager.
Accessed via a secure communal entrance and a lift to all floors, the door to Flat 27 opens into a welcoming hall with three deep storage cupboards. To the left is the living/dining room. Fronted by a trio of windows and with a dual aspect for additional light, this bright reception area has a generous footprint accommodating comfortable lounge furniture and a dining table. Traditional-style wall lamps add illumination, working nicely with the soft mint-toned décor which enhances an airy and tranquil ambience. The kitchen is conveniently adjacent, fitted with base and wall cabinets and ample worktop space backed by easy-to-clean splashback tiles, along with a range of appliances.
On opposite sides of the hall, the two bedrooms come with built-in wardrobes and soft carpeting. The main bedroom is a spacious double, whilst the second bedroom is a good-size single with flexible dimensions for alternative use, such as an office. Completing the accommodation, the modern shower room, recently fitted in 2018, offers a three-piece suite (including a double shower enclosure)enveloped in light sandy-toned tiling. Efficient electric heating and double-glazed windows ensure year-round warmth.
The retirement complex includes a residents’ lounge, a house manager, a 24-hour Careline alarm system, laundry facilities, a library, and private rooms for overnight guests. Outside, there is a communal roof garden on the first floor with relaxed seating to lounge and socialise in the sun. To the rear, there is also a private car park for residents and visitors alike.
