property description


Devonshire Grange

Devonshire Grange was built by McCarthy & Stone purpose built for retirement living. The development consists of 41 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60's. You can relax, knowing that there's a House Manager on hand during office hours as well as the added benefit of having security features. These include a 24-hour emergency call system should you require assistance and a camera door entry system linked to your TV, so you can see who's calling before letting them in.
There's no need to worry about being weighed down by maintenance costs either as the service charge covers the cost of external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates, security and energy costs of the homeowners lounge with kitchen facilities and other communal areas.

Local Area

A cosmopolitan and highly sought after district of Leeds, Roundhay is ideally located just over 3 miles from the city centre. With stunning Victorian architecture and an excellent selection of bars, restaurants, pubs and independent shops, it is clear to see why Roundhay is such a popular place to live.
A range of amenities can be found close by the development on bustling Street Lane, including a Coop, a Sainsbury's Local, a Starbucks, a butchers and a range of high-end shops, along with a number of eateries including the famous Flying Pizza restaurant.
There is a Tesco supermarket in nearby Oakwood, which can be reached easily by car or bus and a Marks & Spencer Simply Food is a short drive away at nearby Moortown.
