1 bedroom apartment for sale

Trafalgar Road, Cirencester


Property Description

Full description

A rare and superb opportunity to purchase a one bedroom first floor coach house style apartment located in this highly sought after retirement development within the centre of Cirencester close to a full range of amenities and facilities. Barclay Court offers its residents a full range of facilities including a communal lounge with a variety of clubs, associations and functions, use of landscaped gardens that surround the building, useful laundry room with a selection of washing machines and driers and direct access onto Cirencester town and a short walk from the beautiful Abbey Grounds. The development benefits from a resident suport officer and each apartment has an emergency pull cord system. The apartments benefit from landscaped communal gardens which can be enjoyed by residents all year round.

Owners Comments - The flat is one of a kind in the complex, situated on the first floor, adjoining the block and enjoying all the facilities. It enjoys attic space, for those who have not managed to quite downsize yet. It is not on the sunny side so that you can escape the glare of the sun. You have no neighbours living above, below or to the side of you, giving a peaceful environment, which I have appreciated.

The kitchen has been refurbished in the last eight years and enjoys a microwave/oven instead of the large oven, allowing more cupboard space. It has a window in its sloping roof giving excellent light for my basic cooking and for me to enjoy the canopy, skyscapes and an occasionally a red kite. The bathroom has had the bath replaced by a shower, with a floor area of approx 120 by 70cm, giving plenty of elbowroom.

In the sitting room the false fireplace has been removed giving more wall and floor space. The windows of the bedroom and the sitting room have been replaced in the last four years, and overlook the infant River Coln and the park area. I have two highchairs and a table set in the window bay to enjoy the view while I eat or use the table. A TV aerial socket is provided but you will have to get your own Internet router.

My son built a dais to fit in the bedroom window bay so that, when reading or computing, I can look out at what moves below me. Water voles, kingfishers and little egrets are just a few of the water visitors, with finches and tits enjoying the hawthorn and elder tree on the opposite bank.
