A rare opportunity to purchase a larger than average retirement apartment within the popular Summerlands Lodge development which is conveniently situated for easy access to shops and service as well as transport links in Locksbottom. Situated on the top floor and to the rear of the block (with both lift and stair access), the property provides a double aspect and therefore light lounge/dining room, an ample size double bedroom (which would also fit 2 single beds quite comfortably) with built-in wardrobes, a spacious modern fitted kitchen and a good sized bathroom which has had a walk-in shower fitted in recent years. All rooms contain emergency pull cords with a 24hr careline system installed. Internally, the apartment has been very well-maintained throughout by the previous owner and is therefore ready to move into. Outside, you will find well-established and attractive communal gardens, there is also ample communal parking spaces for residents and visitors. Also worthy of a mention are the amenities on offer to residents, including but not limited to; warden assistance, a communal lounge (which is a hub of social activity for the residents), a laundry room and also a Guest Suite for friends and family to stay in when they visit. This is a highly sought after development and with the benefit of no onward chain we recommend your earliest attention.
