SSTC £240,000 - Flat
If you are at least 55 years of age, then you are bound to be excited by this property: a two-bedroom first-floor flat, with a balcony that enjoys far-reaching southerly views across Bristol!
Estate agents are often guilty of over-using words and phrase such as “unique opportunity”. Well, I feel perfectly justified in saying it now, because this flat is the only one in this development (strictly for owner-occupiers who are at least 55 years of age) that has two bedrooms and a balcony! What’s more the views are tremendous, there is access via a lift (or a choice of staircases), a communal garden and parking area.

A monthly service charge of around £313 covers buildings insurance, general repairs and maintenance of the building and its communal areas (including electricity to common parts and the lift), central heating and hot water to the flat, a 24-hour emergency call system and a part-time estate manager.
The lease contains specific arrangements for the re-sale of apartments. Re-sales are conducted on the seller’s behalf by the freeholder, Retirement Properties Limited.
