About this property
Representing extraordinarily good value for money, as its lease dictates that the flat must be sold at 70% of its full market value, this one-bedroom upper floor flat for the over-60s has character in abundance!
One wall of the living room in this over-60s flat comprises the rose window of the church from which the development was converted. Absolutely stunning! Furthermore, there are two large porthole windows in that same room, both facing south and both enjoying an open outlook. This all contributes to the flat having a characterful, bright and airy feel, which is added to by an attractive full-height leaded window in the double bedroom. The flat is on the third floor, with access by lift or stairs, and is part of a development that includes a laundry room, communal undercover parking, a communal garden (although it is also just across the road from Bristol's biggest public garden, the Downs), a 24-hour emergency call system and a visiting estate manager.
