Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This warden assisted one bedroom ground floor apartment forms part of a modern retirement complex with communal living areas. The apartment is conveniently positioned for bus services and Farnborough town centre and has been recently refurbished and benefits from direct access to southerly grounds.  

Location Farnborough is a thriving business community, benefitting from a multimillion pound redevelopment of the town centre. The history of the area is dominated by the renowned Farnborough Airfield; as the home of the first flight in Britain, it has a long tradition of being at the centre of aeronautical industry hosting The International Air Show every two years.

Farnborough is set in an ideal location for the commuter with excellent rail, road and general transport networks; Farnborough mainline station will take you into London Waterloo in under 40 minutes and there is access to the M3 bringing Farnham, Fleet, Basingstoke and Camberley within easy reach.

Residents can enjoy a cinema, sports centre, a boating lake at Hawley woods, or take a step outside the town to the beautiful Hampshire countryside perhaps via the tranquil Basingstoke Canal to the south. 

The Property A light and airy décor enhances the generous propertions of the property, which is evident as you enter the hall way. The hallway is fitted with a range of storage cupboards, and guides you through to the double bedroom, lounge and bathroom.

The spacious lounge sits centrally within the apartment, with the kitchen located just off the room. With the room extending over 19ft it is ideal for entertaining. Glazed patio doors opens onto the southerly aspect garden surrounding the home, the perfect spot for enjoying a bit of sunshine. The kitchen looks over the landscaped communal grounds and is bordered with maple toned unit doors with contrasting worktops. An integrated oven and hob are incorporated within the units.

The double bedroom continues to reflect the spacious feel of the apartment as it extends over 17ft in length. A triple door, mirror fronted wardrobe facilitates ample storage for the room and is brightly lit by the southerly aspect. 

The Grounds Built in circa 2000, Fernhill Lodge is a modern development of retirement apartments with warden assistance. Parking is available within communal grounds, whilst areas of green make the ideal backdrop for walks.

Patio doors open onto an area of green that adjoins the property. This communal space has a lovely southerly aspect and offers plenty of space for freestanding plant pots or simply lounging under the sun.
