Description - This spacious self contained ground floor retirement apartment forms part of a development by McCarthy & Stone built approximately 25 years ago and has matured to be one of the most interesting in the locality. The design is attractive with a substantial building constructed in brick and stone and carefully planned to benefit from commanding views over the surrounding tree lined grounds. Features of the development include a resident House Manager, comprehensive security system and 24 hour Careline facility. There is a guest suite for visitors which can be reserved at a relatively modest cost and a well appointed residents lounge for social functions.

The location is also ideal being approximately mid way between the market town of Altrincham and the village of Hale with its range of individual shops, restaurants, wine bars and railway station. Altrincham Metrolink station, which also incorporates a rail and bus interchange, provides services to surrounding areas.

Springbank stands in a slightly elevated position and this apartment has the added advantage of being on the southerly side with a French window leading onto the stone paved terrace with views toward the adjacent park.

The accommodation incorporates a sitting room of generous size with the focal point of an attractive fireplace and has been reconfigured to include a separate dining room with delightful views over the grounds. A re-fitted kitchen with brushed chrome effect fittings features a range of integrated appliances and overlooks the communal gardens.

The superbly proportioned master bedroom benefits from a comprehensive range of fitted furniture and is served by a modern shower room/WC.

Heating is by means of an upgraded storage radiator to the dining room, slimline storage radiators, convector heaters and the windows are double glazed. Unusually the apartment has a single garage with remotely operated door.
