OUR VIEW: "As you may know, we get to see (and sell!) quite a lot of apartments that are aimed at the "overs" market (over-55, over-60 etc); they don't often come quite as elegant as this. To be honest, the mood is set before you even cross the threshold as you enter a grand period building and climb the sweeping communal staircase under a large domelight (or you can take the lift, if you prefer). Set on the top floor, yet not feeling at all "atticy", the apartment offers spacious living with two double bedrooms, a large lounge/diner, a separate fitted kitchen and a modern wet room. Communally, there are gardens, parking and a laundry room (although this flat has its own washing machine), as well as a beautiful residents' lounge, an estate manager and a 24-hour emergency call system." Martin G. Haigh
