If you want to retire in style, this superb first-floor apartment could be just what you've been looking for. The property is 1 of 38 purpose-built luxury flats - designed specifically for the over 55's.
Set in communal gardens, this particular apartment enjoys a sunny aspect and is one of the few to have its own allocated parking space. If you like well-proportioned rooms it is worth knowing that the property is also of the largest design at Lydgate Court.
Lydgate Court is located off Barons Road, which is situated within easy reach of the town centre and all local amenities. The development is very secure making it perfect for those people wanting to be able to leave their home for periods of time whilst perhaps travelling and enjoying their retirement.

The apartment is served by gas fired central heating and uPVC sealed unit glazing and enjoys a particularly sunny aspect. The hallway has 2 cupboards providing useful storage and housing the gas-fired boiler.
