For Sale £160,000 - Flat
A stunning third (top) floor apartment for the over 55s, featuring phenomenal southerly views across an extensive part of Bristol and neighbouring hills.
There is so much going for this flat that we are sure you will not fail to be “wowed” by it. Before we get to the highlight- the view – let’s talk about the building it’s in for starters. An elegant development of apartments for the over 55s, comprising a terrace of three grand Georgian listed houses. There is a lift, a residents’ lounge, a guest suite, and emergency pull cords throughout. To the rear is an attractive communal walled garden, and a parking area which is offered on a first come first served basis. Now let’s talk about the flat: being on the top floor means it has more natural light than most of its lower neighbours, as there are skylights in both the fitted kitchen and modern shower room. The living room is of a good size, as i the bedroom which is definitely a double. Then, there is the outlook: an absolutely stunning panorama across Bristol – what a fantastic place to live in.
