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 and a guest bedroom suite with twin beds and en suite shower room. Outside there is a communal courtyard garden and, subject to availability, residents' and visitors' parking.
A communal entrance door (with security entry phone) provides access to a reception hall which has stairs and a lift to the first floor. The apartment has a front door leading into an entrance lobby with airing cupboard, and coats/storage recess. An internal door opens through to the main reception hall (with access to loft space and retractable ladder.) The bright and airy lounge has an attractive wide bay window to one corner of the room which has views of Wimborne Minster. There is an open plan fitted kitchen with an excellent range of units and worktops incorporating an electric hob, cooker hood, electric oven, space for fridge/freezer, and views looking up Chapel Lane. Bedroom 1 has built-in wardrobe cupboards with a square bay window to the front elevation,
and bedroom 2 is presently used as a separate dining room. The recently refurbished bathroom/shower room has fully tiled walls, corner bath, separate shower cubicle (with Mira shower
fitment,) wash basin (with storage cupboards below,) and concealed low cistern W.C.
The apartment benefits from electric heating. LEASE: 99 years commencing 1986. GROUND RENT: £75 paid half yearly. MAINTENANCE: £1650 paid half yearly.
