Property Details

Close to the heart of the picturesque riverside village of Hamble-le-Rice, offering two bedrooms, this bright and airy purpose built retirement property, with access to a lift, unrestricted parking, and lovely south facing communal gardens, is available with no onward chain.

Communal Entrance Point
Secure entry system, the system having been very recently upgraded, giving access to the communal resident's lounge, laundry, gardens and fish pond, and with stairs and lift to all floors.

5.95m (19' 6) x 3.38m (11' 1)

Textured ceiling, modern door intercom system, storage heater, TV and FM connection point, and fitted carpet.

2.89m (9' 6) x 1.99m (6' 6)
Fitted with a matching range of eye and base level units and drawers, roll edge work surfaces and complementary tiling, though serviceable as is, to be fair the kitchen would benefit modernisation and the asking price has been very much adjusted to reflect this. With ceiling mounted extractor, space and plumbing for a dishwasher or washing machine, the kitchen also has an oven and grill, space for a low level appliance and vinyl flooring. There is the additional benefit of a glazed serving hatch to the lounge.

Bedroom 1
4.03m (13' 3) x 3.49m (11' 5) max

Bedroom 2
2.79m (9' 2) x 2.50m (8' 2)
Two UPVC double glazed windows, wall panel heater, and fitted carpet.

Shower Room
Modernised in recent years, the shower room benefits a double width shower cubicle, fully tiled with pull down seat and electric shower, pedestal wash and basin, and closed coupled WC with higher seating position than standard. Tiling to principal areas, medicine cabinet, wall mirror and dual voltage shaving point, wall mounted heater, and vinyl flooring.

Residents and visitors are able to make use of two car parks located to the front of the building, with spaces non-allocated on a first come first served basis. There is no charge for parking nor requirement for a permit.

Gardens & Resident's Facilities
With it's south facing garden, fully maintained and available to residents year round and benefitting seating, mature planting and a Koi fish pond, residents further have access to low cost guest accommodation, and a laundry room (if required). Properties benefit alarm pull points giving access to a central monitoring station. For more information on the development, contact Anchor on freephone 0808 102 4069.

The vendor has already vacated the property and is not seeking to tie in an onward purchase. The property is therefore available with no onward chain.

This property is located on the top (second) floor of the building, with lift access available. This property does not have a balcony.
