EPC Rating: C


"Maidencombe House is a beautiful development and a wonderful communuity of people. There is so much that we love about living here, from the stunning gardens and swimming pool, to the beautiful walks nearby, and garage parking. The views are obviously one of the major benenfits, and we still find ourselves being drawn to the large windows and balcony to enjoy the fabulous outlook. The size of the apartment is also so much larger than others, and trying to find something similar has been challenging! It has been an emotional decision to make, but we are moving east along the coast to be closer to our family."
