Every so often a first floor apartment comes on to the market in Mercian Court and when they do, they tend to generate a lot of interest and to appreciate everything this property has to offer, we recommend an internal inspection. In 2022 the present owners updated the heating with GABARRON electric storage heaters, the original coloured bathroom suite has been replaced with a lovely modern shower room and bedroom one has fitted wardrobes to one wall. Outside are plenty of parking spaces and the communal gardens can be enjoyed by the residents. For peace of mind the apartment is fitted with emergency pull cords for the warden and the development is accessed under a high arched, gated entrance and is well lit in the evenings.

With Mercian Court being located in the town centre of Market Drayton, you are only a short distance away from all the local amenities and every Wednesday, Cheshire Street is closed to make way for the street market.

The full living accommodation comprises: front porch, reception hall, landing, lounge, kitchen, two bedrooms, modern white shower room, electric heating, uPVC double glazed windows, communal parking and communal gardens.
