Caterstone was converted in 1986 from a Victorian house to which two purpose built wings were added creating a comfortable retirement complex with a minimum residents age of 60 years. The complex benefits from a residents lounge, laundry room, guest bedroom suite with twin beds and an en suite shower room. Outside there is a courtyard garden and residents' and visitors' parking.
A communal entrance door with security entry phone provides access to the reception hall (which has stairs and a lift to the first floor.) The door to apartment 2 leads to an entrance hall (with airing cupboard.) The lounge has newly fitted electric fire with a decorative surround, and an open plan kitchen has an excellent range of storage cupboards including integrated cooker, and space for fridge/freezer.
There is a double bedroom (with fitted wardrobe cupboards,) and a bathroom. Outside, there is a communal courtyard garden which has areas of block paved terracing and seating areas, with mature shrubs.
The property benefits from electric heating and sealed unit double glazing.
