A single-storey end-of-terrace house constructed in the late 1980's, tucked away to the back of this well-presented sheltered scheme for the over 55's. The accommodation benefits from good ceiling heights and an outlook to three sides over the surrounding gardens. The flow of light to the heart of the property is maximised by the use of glazed internal doors to the living areas and there are sliding and French doors out to the West-facing side terrace and rear garden from the dining room and conservatory. The dual-aspect sitting room features a square bay window to the front, a window overlooking the side terrace and a fireplace fitted with a gas coal-effect fire.

The garden wraps around three sides of the property, the front and back areas offering a seamless perspective over the equally colourful neighbouring gardens and the side terrace providing a more private space for outdoor living. The single garage lies in the northern block of garages and is accessed directly from the communal forecourt, where parking spaces for visitors are also provided.

Tenure: Leasehold, 999 years from 24 June 1987. Details of Ground Rent payable are available from the office.
