Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

3 WREN HOUSE ORCHARD off Grenadier Close Warminster is a comfortable well-appointed retirement apartment located on the Ground Floor of Wren House Orchard, a small and exclusive purpose-built development within the grounds of Wren House Retirement Home, which caters for the needs of the elderly and retired. The apartments are designed with able and independent retirement in mind and are ideally suited for someone downsizing from a larger property seeking an attractive, low-maintenance modern home needing the reassurance and peace of mind that care or domestic facilities are close at hand in the future. Approached via a spacious communal Ground Floor Hall, served by a lift and stairway to the First Floor, the well-proportioned apartment benefits from Upvc sealed-unit Double Glazing together with Electric Economy 7 Night Store Heating. Available with no associated sale chain, this is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a comfortable Ground Floor retirement home in an exclusive location where properties are seldom for sale, hence the Agents strongly recommend an early accompanied internal inspection in order to avoid disappointment.

LOCATION Wren House Orchard is quietly hidden away, approached off Grenadier Close via a private driveway, although residents hold a key which allows access on foot through the Gardens of Wren House as a short cut to Vicarage Street and on into the town centre. This area of Warminster includes many fine period properties, some dating from the 17th Century were homes of wealthy merchants, and are part of the Vicarage Street Conservation Area including the historic Obelisk at the junction of Vicarage Street, Church Street and Silver Street, site of the original market cross and believed to have been the original town centre during the Middle Ages. Warminster has excellent shopping facilities - 3 supermarkets including a Waitrose store and a wide range of amenities which include a theatre, library, hospital and clinics, whilst the town enjoys a regular rail service to Salisbury, and then direct to London Waterloo, and to Bath with a direct line on to South Wales. Other centres in the area including Frome, Westbury, Trowbridge, Salisbury and Bath are all within a comfortable driving distance whilst the A36, A350 and A303 trunk routes provide swift access throughout the West Country and further afield to London via the A303/M3. Bristol, Bournemouth and Southampton airports are all just over an hour.
