The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, laundry, scooter store, landscaped gardens with an attractive courtyard. 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.
