Full descriptionA two bedroom retirement apartment with south facing balcony in a wonderful, luxury complex with superb private facilities including a swimming pool, gym, restaurant, cinema and lovely gardens.

Swimming pool, gym and wellbeing rooms
Beautifully tended gardens with outdoor seating areas
24 hour staffing including an emergency call system from the apartment
Parking for residents and visitors
A regular minibus to supermarkets and the city centre
The apartment is on the first (top) floor of the south corner of the building, which gives it the advantage of having no neighbour on top and two sunny aspects for windows, to the south west and south east, plus a south west facing balcony.
There is a lift from the ground floor up to the first floor communal landings and the private entrance door for the apartment.
The accommodation includes two bedrooms, both with tall windows providing good natural light and the larger room with a generous en-suite wet / shower room. The bathroom too is very spacious and has a low-level bath for easy access. The main living room has windows to three sides and opens into a very well equipped kitchen with all appliances and a window on to the communal landing.
There is space heating and a fresh air ventilation system, paid for within the service charge.
Abbeyfield is excellent for those who are looking for completely independent living but want easy access to excellent facilities and the company of like-minded residents. It also has additional care facilities that can be added for those who require it making it an excellent alternative to expensive private care.
The apartment is leasehold with around 121 years of the lease remaining. The service charge is currently about £640 a month including the ground rent of £500 a year.
It is for sale with no onward chain.
The Wellbrook Way area offers a fantastic balance between living within the city limits and enjoying the traditional charm and facilities of Girton village. It is within 2 miles of the west University site and 2.5 miles from the very centre of the city with excellent dedicated cycle routes. There is also a small Co-op supermarket by Girton College that is open 7 days a week until late.
The middle of Girton village is about a mile and has an excellent range of pubs and restaurants, shops and other facilities. There is a primary school in the village that feeds into Impington Village College (3 miles) plus a tennis club and golf course. Many of the city's private schools are on the west side of the city, so are easily accessible.
