DESCRIPTION Set in the popular Homechime, a development for the over 55's, is this bright and spacious, second floor, one bedroom apartment overlooking the communal gardens. New carpets have been fitted in the entrance hall and sitting room.
The front door opens into an entrance hall giving access to all rooms. The sitting room is a good size and has a large window overlooking the well manicured communal gardens and flooding the room with natural light. There is space to accommodate a good amount of furniture and a new and efficient storage heater has recently been installed. A walk-in store cupboard is accessed from the sitting room and offers plenty of useful storage.The kitchen, which is also accessed directly from the sitting room, features a range of ivory Shaker style wall and base units with space for a fridge freezer and cooker. The kitchen and bathroom both benefit from a recently fitted electric water heating system which only heats the water used, thus saving money.
