Tenure: Leasehold


This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise´s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property´s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

What the Owner says:

I bought this apartment to keep my independence and have the feel of a community around me, with the added security of knowing that there is a house manager on site.

I enjoyed going to the village and spending time in the community lounge but have always preferred the peace and quiet of my own private retreat! The time has come to move closer to my family and have a little more support around me, I hope that the next owner enjoys their time here as much as I have.
