FIRST TWO YEARS SERVICE CHARGES INCLUDED - A stunning large 1 bedroom top floor apartment situated in the fantastic Retirement Living Plus McCarthy and Stone development of Portman Court. The largest One Bedroom in the development.
We all know how hard it is to make that decision to downsize and move to a more manageable property. Often the biggest concern is the space and how do you downsize from a large family home to a 1 bedroom retirement apartment.
Well with this stunning 1 bedroom apartment there certainly are not so many issues in that regard, as I am proud to offer this fantastic and the largest, one bedroom property on the development that is on the market for the very first time since the property was bought from new.
Not only does this apartment enjoy over 700 SQ Ft of accommodation it also enjoys the most fabulous views of the Weald beyond and there is certainly nothing to beat sitting at the window with a cup of tea and enjoying the view whilst also enjoying seeing the birds and various other wildlife that venture into the gardens.
Being top floor the added benefit is the property is situated perfectly next to the guest suite so if you do have family or friends staying a small fee is payable to rent the room and it is perfect as just situated next door to your own apartment.
The apartment itself is spacious and well presented throughout. Being the largest 1 bed property in the development, every room is of a good proportion. The living room is spacious with a dining area and a seating area perfect for the fantastic views.
The kitchen is of a great size, so if a keen baker and you do not want to utilise the fabulous restaurant downstairs, you can enjoy rustling a lunch or dinner at your own leisure. Subject to further discussion and if needed you could have a dishwasher and / or a washing machine plumbed in, however the service charge does include the use of a communal laundry room with commercial machines to also clean the bigger items.
The master bedroom is also a great size with an integral double wardrobe and a further seating area to enjoy the views in the morning.
The bathroom has a walk in shower area with no steps so access for the infirm and wheelchair access as in the whole apartment is taken into consideration by the design and for those more able there is also a bath.
Overall this is without doubt the best retirement apartment I have seen in the development and with 1 bed apartments selling brand new in local developments for over £500,000 this wonderful property offers exceptional value for money.
It should be noted there is a 24 hour service and within the service charge includes an hour of cleaning and also there is a restaurant that serves lunch for a small subsidised fee for just a few pounds as a 3 course meal. Then after lunch there is a communal lounge for residents to mingle and play games and chat etc.
Externally the property benefits from ample off road parking available on a first come first served basis but with great local public transport most residents do not own a car.
The communal gardens are managed, however some of the residents like to get involved in the gardening and are actively encouraged to do so.
I highly recommend this property and Portman Court. I can also talk first hand as my mother lives in the development and has done so for many happy years and for those wishing to discuss further the services and facilities on offer I would be delighted to assist and show you around this amazing retirement setup.
The development of Portman Court is situated in the heart of the town centre of Uckfield, with its array of shops ranging from local cafes, takeaways, boutiques to the large supermarkets of Tesco and Waitrose just a short walk into town.
The town also benefits from a mainline train station with direct links to London with a train taking just over an hour and runs on a regular basis. There are also various bus services taking you to Royal Tunbridge Wells, Crowborough, East Grinstead, Forest Row, Hastings and Brighton and is well serviced.
There are also various doctors and dentist surgeries close by.
As well as the shops and services there is a wonderful civic centre that offers various shows, clubs and societies satisfying every taste and a wonderful recently upgraded local family run cinema.
