For Sale £295,000 - Flat
Newly decorated, new carpeted throughout, and with an open outlook, this bright, light and airy two-bedroom first floor flat for the over-60s is ready to move into, and is offered with no onward chain.
This first-floor purpose-built flat is set in an extremely popular development for the over-60s, just a short stroll from Henleaze Road – with all of its shops, cafes and other facilities – plus Waitrose, the cinema, the library, the Downs, and with a doctors’ surgery just across the road.The flat has been newly decorated and newly carpeted throughout (so recently, in fact, that our photos were taken before the new flooring had been vacuumed!), and is offered with no onward chain. The living room and kitchen both overlook the communal garden and the scout hut beyond, so enjoy a reasonably open outlook, and the two bedrooms look onto the large central courtyard where the residents sometimes hold coffee mornings (on fine days of course!). The flat has its own front door and stairs making this the ideal home for someone wanting the peace of mind of having an estate manager on site and a 24-hour emergency call system in place, but wishing to fully keep their sense of independence.

Leasehold (currently the unexpired portion of a 99-year lease dated 1996, but the vendors are organising the extension of this to a full 99 years).
We are seeking clarification, but we understand there to be a service charge of around £121 per month, which sum contributes towards the costs of buildings insurance, general repairs and maintenance of the building and its communal areas (including the gardens), the services of a resident estate manager, and use of a 24-hour emergency call system.
Again we are seeking confirmation, but we understand that, as with many developments of this nature, there is a charge payable upon the resale of the property (sometimes referred to as an on-going contribution to the sinking fund), currently calculated as 0.5% of the price paid when purchased, multiplied by the number of years ownership.
