1 Bedroom Apartment - Retirement in Hitchin£295,000

About this property

A smartly presented Assisted Living apartment that forms part of this highly regarded and prestigious development. This attractive first floor home is extremely well placed for many amenities including Waitrose and the Town Centre. The development assists those over the age of 70 and promotes their independence whilst providing the flexible support and assistance that they may need.

In our opinion, the facilities within the development are unrivalled within the Town and feature a waitress style restaurant that serves freshly cooked food plus the opportunity for homeowners to socialise in one of the many communal areas that include a resident's lounge and dining room, library, function room, and conservatory. Other communal facilities include a laundry room, a Wellbeing suite, guest suite, services of an on-site 24hr manager and Careline plus attractive and neatly maintained landscaped gardens that surround the development. Domestic assistance and personal care packages are available (additional charges may apply). Permit parking is also available (subject to availability). The development also features an active Residents Committee which organises various social events and activities.

Originally constructed by McCarthy & Stone and built to a high standard with many quality fittings including underfloor heating, heat recovery system and electrically operated kitchen windows. The accommodation features a wide entrance hall with a large built-in storage cupboard, spacious ceramic tiled wet room, large double sized bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, large sitting room with a Romeo and Juliet style balcony plus a fitted kitchen with built-in appliances.

An early viewing is highly recommended in order to appreciate this Chain Free sale.
