Southgate House is a managed retirement development for the over 60’s and is located on the southern side of the town, and stands behind an impressive brick pillared entrance and sweeping driveway approach. The communal gardens are beautifully maintained and provide a lovely setting for the apartment.
Bury St. Edmunds provides an excellent range of recreational and shopping facilities, whilst the A14 provides easy access to both Ipswich and Cambridge.
The apartment is located on the first floor of a converted Grade II Listed house and offers well proportioned rooms with plenty of natural light. Whilst the property has been well maintained, potential now exists for some updating which is why the property is being marketed at such a competitive price.
It is also important to note that there is no lift or opportunity for a stairlift, so buyers would need to have a certain level of mobility to access the first floor.
Each room within the apartment has an emergency pull cord system to alert the on site manager if required. During times when the Manager is not on site the alarm is sent through to a central monitoring system which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
