(Over 60's Only). This well-presented and recently refurbished one bedroom retirement flat sits within a popular complex in South Woodford, with excellent amenities both on-site and in the local neighbourhood. With a spacious interior, access to communal areas and gardens, this first floor flat is also served by a secure entry phone system and lift. Approaching from the street you’ll note the attractive façade to the apartment complex, with its stylish pitched dormer windows on the upper level, and well maintained exterior. A metal gate provides access to the resident-only parking to the rear of the building, which is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Entering the property, you immediately come into your own private entrance hall which features some useful built-in storage space. To your right is a beautifully equipped bathroom, which is both generous in size and
style. Having recently undergone a full refurbishment, this bathroom features a white suite, consisting of sink low-level WC and large walk-in shower unit. Its grey and white mottled-effect walls are complemented by the warmer taupe tiles, and there’s a large storage unit for all of your towels and toiletries. A large mirror over the sink helps to keep the space light and airy, and for your convenience and safety there’s also a built-in handrail and emergency call chord. Turning right out of the bathroom, straight ahead you come into your wonderfully sized bedroom. Decorated in fresh neutral tones with warm brown carpet, this room offers excellent dimensions to allow space for a double or king-size bed, bedside table, drawer units and any personal touches you want to include. With another emergency pull chord in place and a large double built-in wardrobe with mirrored sliding doors, this is a wonderful space that you could quickly make your own – with the added reassurance of having help on hand, 24 hours a day, should you ever need it. Heading back out of the bedroom, turn to your right and you’ll find yourself in the incredibly spacious through-lounge and dining room. With its large window letting in plenty of light, this space can be configured to your exact taste and requirements. There’s more than enough room for a comfortable sofa or three-piece suite, TV unit, display cabinets, coffee table and a dining room table and chairs – allowing you to entertain family and friends any time you wish. Another neutral room, the marigold walls and beautiful grey carpet present the perfect canvas from which to put your own mark on. Last but by no means least, we now enter the charming kitchen via the open archway at the end of the living room. Light, bright and sophisticated, it offers a good selection of white base and wall units, topped off with light grey countertops to harmonise perfectly with the large, rectangular grey floor tiles. There’s also a glass-fronted display cabinet, an integrated oven and hob, and plumbed in dishwasher and washing machine. While this well thought-out retirement property has everything you need on the inside, you also have the numerous additional benefits of being in the heart of a readymade community. The complex offers a recently refurbished residents’ lounge, where you can join in with social activities and celebrate special events and occasions with your new neighbours, plus there are also shared laundry facilities available, along with a very useful guest suite for any overnight visitors you wish to entertain. The flat itself has a very efficient ‘B’ EPC rating, is on the market completely chain-free, and is available for resident owners of 60 years and above. If you want to take a stroll around the local vicinity, you’ll find everything you need on your doorstep. There’s a Waitrose and cinema within an easy walk, and nearby George Lane offers plenty of shops, eateries, pubs, cafes and additional supermarkets in the shape of a local Marks and Spencer’s and a Sainsbury’s. For those wishing to venture further afield, the flat benefits from excellent links to Wanstead, Woodford and Buckhurst Hill via bus, and South Woodford Underground Station will take you right into the heart of London via the central line.
