Full description

Airlie Garden is a high quality, purpose-built retirement housing development in Banff, on the north east coast of Scotland. The town offers a range of good amenities including a supermarket and shops and amenities, all within a short walk of the centrally but quietly located complex.

Banff itself is a coastal town, offering pretty views over Banff Bay, and for football fans the development is situated very close to Deveronvale Football Club's stadium. Regular buses travel to Elgin and Aberdeen and the bus stop is situated right outside the development.

The property on offer is a modern, one-bedroom flat, for over 60s, located on the first floor and served by a lift.

The flat, which is ideal for a single person, is made up of:

- a good sized living room;
- a double bedroom;
- a kitchen designed specifically for older people and with space for an electric cooker; and
- a modern bathroom

It features:

- heating that provides a constant source of heating and hot water, the cost of which is included in the rental figure;
- recently upgraded double glazing throughout; and
- an emergency alarm system, which is linked to a 24-hour call centre where help can be given in an emergency.

Airlie Gardens itself also benefits from a number of fantastic communal features:

- a member of staff onsite five days a week, who looks after the development and can help out in an emergency;
- a residents' lounge which is fully carpeted and furnished and features a small kitchen;
- a private laundry for residents' or carers' use, including high quality driers and whirlygigs outside;
- a communal TV aerial with a socket in every room, meaning no individual aerials are required;
- free on-street parking located close by; and
- communal gardens where we can often make an area available for individuals to look after.

As well as heating, the rental cost given includes the service charge. Depending on your circumstances, you may qualify for help to pay for some of these charges.

The development has an active social scene, including coffee mornings three days a week, a fish and chip evening once a month and regular tenants' outings.

Airlie Gardens is owned and managed by Hanover (Scotland) Housing Association, one of Scotland's largest non-profit suppliers of housing to older people. Our clients' needs are at the core of what we do and we take care to liaise regularly with them in order to constantly strive to improve our services.
