For Sale £190,000 - Flat
A quiet but brilliantly convenient setting for this well-presented one-bedroom purpose-built flat for the over-sixties, within a reasonably short walk of Clifton Village
A great combination of having a quiet setting (being at the rear of the building), with the optional use of communal facilities like a residents’ lounge, and the convenience of being within striking distance of Clifton Village and Queens Road, all add to the appeal of this one-bedroom over-sixties apartment.

For anyone seeking independence but wanting to have additional peace of mind, the development (including all the flats) has a 24-hour emergency call system in place, and a resident estate manager.
