Location Millans Court is located very close to the centre of Ambleside and can be approached from the south via Rothay Road leading along the one way system onto Compston Road. Turn left immediately before Zeffirellis cinema and second left into Millans Park. Millans Court is located on the right hand side. There is a communal car parking facility within the development and the centre of the village is just a short level stroll away. 

Description Millans Court is a highly regarded development of purpose built self contained apartments located just a short level stroll from the centre of Ambleside which is well served by a wide variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, cinemas, churches and a post office. There are good public transport links to the surrounding towns and villages and Ambleside itself occupies one of the most beautiful locations at the head of Lake Windermere with mountain scenery all around.

The apartment is immaculately presented and enjoys a truly delightful top floor location, arguably one of the best in the development, looking almost due south to the Parish Church spire and beyond. You can admire Wansfell from the balcony, and in the winter you may even spot glimpses of Lake Windermere - although we do concede that you would still have to enjoy pretty good eyesight for the latter!

The apartment can be accessed either via the quiet and smooth lift or via the staircase. The heated main corridor gives access to the private hallway and the well balanced accommodation. The sunny south facing living room offers plenty of space for both relaxing and dining and is supplemented by a sweet little balcony which arguably enjoys even better views and there is a separate kitchen. There are two south facing bedrooms and a lovely modern shower room with a three piece suite. There is a communal sitting room on the ground floor, great for get-togethers with friends and socialising with fellow residents, along with a communal laundry room. A guests bedroom is available for visiting family members and friends within the building should the two bedrooms within the apartment not be sufficient. There are pretty communal gardens and on-site car parking facilities.

Millans Court itself was purpose built in 1987 to provide accommodation in this lovely setting exclusively for those aged 55 years and over with emergency pull cords in each of the principal rooms, and an intercom connection to the warden.

Seen by many as the perfect solution for a comfortable and relaxed retirement, providing independence for the owner and peace of mind from the family, Millans Court enjoys an excellent reputation locally and early viewing is highly recommended.
