The stunning architectural elevations include an elegant 'arched-tower' entrance, tall windows, feature quoin and balustrade detailing and is surrounded by fine Pine Trees and Rhododendrons. The development is set well back behind the imposing entrance to the Gardens. The opulence continues internally with an impressive main entrance hall with polished porcelain flooring, mirrors and a classic-contemporary decor. A lift service and stairs provide access to just 20 stylish apartments. Azaleas is a development specifically for those aged over 55.
