Recently refurbished and recarpeted, and featuring natural light to every room (by virtue of being on the top floor and benefitting from rooflights) this one-bedroom flat for the over-55s is ready to move into, sit in a chair, and enjoy the view of the Suspension Bridge. Bliss.

Set on the top floor of this elegant conversion, this over-55s flat enjoys a view that takes in much of Brunel’s iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. It has been recently refurbished, recarpeted, and has an open outlook, combined with having natural light to all its rooms (there are skylight windows in the otherwise internal kitchen and bathroom); this all ensures the flat has a light, airy and cheerful ambience, not to mention a won’t-need-to-lift-a-finger-to-live-here feel. There is a double bedroom, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, together with communal facilities like a residents’ lounge and a laundry room. The flat can be accessed by lift or stairs, and the development has an attractive walled communal garden and a parking area to the rear.
