Purchasing this property with A lifetime lease

This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise´s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property´s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £85,000, please contact Wards.
Property description

When it comes to planning your retirement – finding that perfect peaceful apartment, especially in the centre of a bustling, historic city such as Canterbury, can be difficult. This is why we are delighted to offer this apartment, as it ticks all the boxes.

From the moment you enter the court (with residents' parking), you will feel a sense of peace and security. Everything you may need is here at Barton Mill Court, from the immaculate garden to the well-appointed, bright, residents' lounge where you can meet other residents over a tea or coffee. A lift gives access to all floors.

The apartment is ready to move into with its newly fitted shower room and recently renovated kitchen. The rooms are generously proportioned and benefit from double glazing throughout.

The ground floor of Barton Mill Court has a communal laundry facility and a guest room for your friends and family.

Imagine yourself spending the evenings in the comfort of your lounge – in the knowledge that all the facilities of a thriving city on your doorstep. Pop to the nearby Marlowe Theatre or enjoy an evening at one of the many restaurants within these medieval city walls. This apartment certainly offers the best of both worlds.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.

What the Owner says:
My mother and I chose this apartment as it had so many positives. From the proximity of the shops and supermarkets, the health centre in London Road, the bus stop across the road and main-line train station around the corner, Barton Mill Court had everything we were looking for. Security was a consideration so to have the services of an on-site manager and call lines throughout the flat gave us peace of mind. When she moved in, we refurbished the kitchen and added a larger step-in shower so the new owner will be saved that task. There is a real sense of community in Barton Mill Court – with coffee mornings and lunches where other apartment owners can gather and chat, something that our mother particularly enjoyed.
