The Property
3 ORCHARD MEADOWS forms part of a retirement complex with optional care schemes if required. This is a very well proportioned ground floor apartment which is one of only three which have direct access to the rear garden. French windows from the sitting room open to a small patio which in turn leads to the lawned gardens which overlook a park. This is a shared ownership opportunity and the quoted price represents 75% of the gross value.

The accommodation is well presented, modern as it has only been built within the last five years and features exceptional room sizes. It was re-decorated throughout approximately a year ago and is therefore, in our opinion, ready to move into.
