Caterstone was converted in 1986 from a Victorian house to which 2 purpose built wings were added creating a comfortable retirement complex with a minimum resident age of 60 years. The complex benefits from a residents' lounge, laundry room, and a guest bedroom suite (with twin beds and an en suite shower room.) Outside there is a courtyard garden and, subject to availability, residents' parking with an annual charge of £400.
A communal entrance door with security entryphone provides access to the reception hall from which there are stairs and a lift to the first and second floors. Flat 6 is on the ground floor and has an entrance hall with airing cupboard (containing hot and cold water tanks), and a lounge with a delightful aspect over the courtyard. The open plan kitchen has been re-fitted with an extensive range of cupboards, worktops, fridge-freezer, De Longhi electric oven with ceramic hob, extractor, and peninsular breakfast table unit. There is a double bedroom with built-in wardrobes, oil fitted radiator, and a refurbished shower room with walk-in shower, concealed cistern WC, wash basin, electric towel radiator, fully tiled walls, and electric shaver point.
There is a communal courtyard garden with block paved seating areas and mature shrubs. LEASE: 99 years from 1986.
