SSTC £175,000 - Flat
A two-bedroom purpose-built ground floor flat for the over-55s, on Bristol’s famous Durdham Downs, providing a great combination of independent living with peace of mind, and featuring a gorgeous aspect overlooking a wonderful communal garden.
There’s a popular phrase about “location” being the most important feature of any property. Whether that’s always the case is open to debate, but in this instance the location has definitely got a lot going for it. Firstly, this two-bedroom apartment for the over-55s is set on the ground floor of a development which stands right next to the open space of Bristol’s famous Durdham Downs. What’s more, the flat enjoys a dual aspect and views over a gorgeous communal garden. Then, added to all of that, whilst the development has a communal residents’ lounge so is ideal for those wanting a sociable existence, anyone who prefers their independence will be equally delighted … I’ll explain more when you view.
