Located on Highfield Lane you will have the best of both worlds - a wonderful home in this beautiful one bedroom apartment plus enjoy the company of fellow residents in the communal lounge and gardens with a guest suite to use for overnight visitors.
A big welcome will greet you the moment you enter this lovely property - an essence of calm to ensure you can relax and unwind from the hustle & bustle. The spacious living room has space for relaxing, enjoying the company of friends & family and for dining. Just off the living room is the modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances - just the place to try out all those recipies you never got round to before and impress everyone with your culinary expertise - or you could just rustle up a quick snack to enjoy in front of the television. And create your own haven in the generous double bedroom which comes with built-in wardrobes. Completing the accommodation is the bathroom which has a large walkin shower enclosure, white whb & toilet and good storage areas. The decor is neutral and with great light coming in the many windows the apartment is bright and airy throughout.
