This superb second floor retirement apartment forms part of a development by McCarthy & Stone built a little over 25 years ago and has matured to be one of the most interesting in the locality. The design is attractive with a substantial building constructed in brick and stone and carefully planned to benefit from commanding views over the surrounding tree lined grounds.

Occupying an ideal location approximately midway between the award winning market town of Altrincham with its Metrolink station providing access to the surrounding areas and the village of Hale with its individual shops and restaurants. Features of the development include a resident House Manager, comprehensive security system and 24 hour Careline facility, a guest suite for visitors which can be reserved at relatively modest cost and the beautifully appointed residents lounge for social functions.

This apartment is situated in one of the most favoured positions with far reaching views in a southerly direction toward Springbank Park and also overlooking the beautifully maintained grounds to the west.

The accommodation is unusually spacious and the private entrance hall leads onto a generous sitting/dining room with the focal point of a period style fireplace surround and double opening glazed doors which open onto the adjacent fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. The excellent primary bedroom benefits from a range of fitted furniture alongside built-in wardrobes and there is a second double bedroom which may be suitable for a variety of uses. Importantly, the bathroom has been replanned to incorporate a wide shower enclosure for ease of access.

The apartment also benefits from upgraded Dimplex Quantum storage heaters and double glazed windows.

Externally there are resident and visitor parking areas with well maintained grounds featuring undulating lawns and well stocked borders.
