For Sale £139,500 - Flat
Ready to move into, and in a very quiet corner of the building, this one-bedroom lift-accessible first-floor flat for the over-60s is in an extremely convenient location!
There are some great shops just up the road, a bus stop right outside the building, doctors, dentists and hairdressers all close by … this really is a fantastically convenient setting for someone of at least 60 years of age. And yet, inside the flat, you would hardly know that any of that exists as it is so quiet! Situated on the first floor, at the rear corner of the building, this one-bedroom apartment is ready to move into, has windows in EVERY room (including the bathroom), and is available with no onward chain. There is a choice of using the lift or either staircase, and the development has a lovely residents’ lounge, an attractive communal garden, a visiting estate manager, and a 24-hour emergency call system throughout. All in all, a brilliant flat in a very well-maintained modern development, offering peace of mind for residents (and of course their families) without impinging in any way on their independence, further enhanced by being so close to so much! My only question: when would you like to view?
