Property description

If you're starting to think it’s time to move to a retirement apartment, this lovely property is worth a look. Set in a fantastic location, central to Maidstone town centre with its vast choice of shops, restaurants and amenities.

The lounge has plenty of space to put a dining table in so, why not invite one of your new neighbours round to show off your cooking skills.

There is a real community spirit here and the communal gardens give you the chance to relax in the sun and get to know the rest of the residents. If it’s a cold day why not take advantage of the communal lounge and enjoy a book and a cup of tea or coffee.

The development also has a laundry room for the residents use and if you want friends or family to stay, you can hire out the en-suite double guest room.

For those that are downsizing the flat has plenty of room in the bedroom for storage and there is a large cupboard in the hallway to hide all those extra bits in.

This home is also ideally located close to the town centre so you will have no concerns about waiting for buses when you need to pop out for the essentials.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.
