Property Description

A superbly presented and well proportioned ground floor retirement apartment within this highly popular development positioned in an ideal location approximately mid way between Hale and Altrincham. The accommodation briefly comprises private entrance hall with ample storage, sitting/dining room with French window opening onto a paved terrace, fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, spacious double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and contemporary refitted modern shower room/WC. The property also benefits from double glazing and all the facilities of a McCarthy & Stone development.

McCarthy & Stone are renowned for their well planned and managed retirement developments. Springbank is an excellent example being perfectly positioned just a few hundred yards from the village of Hale and the railway station and a little further into the shopping centre of the market town of Altrincham. Equally the building has been carefully designed with attractive elevations and all the facilities you would expect including a resident house manager, careline system within the apartment, laundry room and guest suite which may be reserved for visiting friends and relatives at a relatively modest cost. There is also a thriving community with regular social events mainly held within the resident's lounge which is tastefully furnished and appointed.

This superbly presented ground floor apartment benefits from larger than average proportions and occupies an enviable position with French windows opening onto a paved terrace from the living space. Importantly the shower room has been refitted and there is an upgraded storage heater alongside double glazing throughout.

The accommodation has been carefully designed and the unusually spacious entrance hall has two deep cupboards providing ample storage. Approximately 23' in length and with the focal point of a period style fireplace surround and marble hearth the naturally light dual aspect sitting/dining room leads onto a fitted kitchen through double opening glazed doors. With delightful tree lined views the kitchen features a range of fitted units alongside integrated appliances. A superbly proportioned double bedroom with built-in mirror fronted wardrobes is served by the well appointed contemporary shower room/WC.

The grounds incorporate undulating lawns, paved terraces and are screened by a variety of mature trees with southerly and westerly aspects adjoining Springbank Park.

Externally there are both resident and visitor parking areas.
