property description



Representing the very first Resale apartment in the fantastic development that proved so popular first time around. This lovely apartment is certain to attract similar early interest, it is quietly 'tucked-away' on the first floor at the end of the hallway yet close to the lift service to all floors. The apartment is beautifully presented in 'as new' condition with the benefit of a lovely balcony with a very pleasant outlook. There is a spacious, dual aspect living room, a quality modern kitchen with a host of integrated appliances, two double bedrooms, the master bedroom having en-suite wetroom, and a second shower room.

Constructed in 2018 by multi award-winning retirement developer McCarthy and Stone, Banks Place occupies a quiet location yet is very conveniently positioned with a just few minutes walk of the excellent facilities of this sought-after village location. The Ellendune Shopping centre is located just over half a mile from the new development offering a range of convenience shops including Tesco Express. There’s also a local café, butchers and a range of restaurants to choose from. For everyday shopping there’s a Co-Op store located just moments away and a Waitrose supermarket is 2 miles from Banks Place. The village also boasts a doctors, dentists, florist and a local hospital. Wroughton village is conveniently located within easy reach of Swindon city centre, which is easily accessible via a regular bus service for which there is a bus stop located just outside the development. Whilst junctions 15 and 16 of the M4 are around 4 miles away.

Banks Place is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent living opportunity for those over 60 years of age with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and a sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a fantastic homeowners lounge, beautiful landscaped gardens, a scooter store and parking available by annual permit for which there is a charge of around £250 and for which there may be a waiting list. There is also a super guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Banks Place; there is always a variety of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, film and quiz nights, carpet bowls and even a 'Fizz-Friday'.
