property description


Located in a prime position on the second floor of this very popular development situated adjacent to the fabulous communal roof terrace and therefore benefiting from not only the opportunity to 'keep an eye' on life to the front of Roswell Court but also to enjoy what are quite stunning panoramic coastal views from the terrace, a very pleasant place to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. This is a delightful one bedroom apartment beautifully presented throughout. A welcoming living room has a Juliette balcony, there is a well fitted kitchen complete with a host of integrated appliances, the excellent double bedroom has a built-in wardrobe, and a modern wet room affords a bath and a separate level access shower. The service charge extends to cover the excellent underfloor heating cost within the apartment. A lift service provides access to the excellent communal facilities of Roswell Court.

A ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. Homeowners benefit from an hour of free domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies. The development features excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied, daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens backing with views to the coast. A fantastic roof terrace with furniture proves a very popular meeting point in favourable weather and from which panoramic views are enjoyed.
