One of the finest retirement developments in the area. Chartcombe is in a prestigious location and certainly the most tranquil. Built in 1989 when space and robust construction were the criteria, this 2 double bedroom ground floor apartment is perfect. No forward chain.

You approach this development from a sumptuous long hedged drive off of Canford Cliffs Road. The

drive is next to Compton Acres, which is acknowledged as one of the finest privately owned gardens in England. And owners have a private access to Compton Acres with free entry 52 weeks a year.

As the drive splits there are electronic gates to Chartcombe, a further drive which sweeps round to the entrance to the flats. The drive sweeps around a magnificent centerpiece Oak tree which is illuminated and the focal point of occasions like Remembrance Sunday. Off of the drive there is the entrance to the secure underground car park, with a dedicated space for your flat. There are lots of visitor spaces. With a high quality CCTV system, bpt security video entry system for each flat, hard wired smoke alarms, internal telephone system and Appello emergency call system in each flat, safety and security is taken very seriously.

The flat has been refurbished in the last 4 years, including a new Glow Worm combi boiler that is still

under warranty, a new En suite shower room, new kitchen and new patio doors. There is thorough and planned management of the block and certainly the best managed that we know of in the area, and all the flat owners share ownership of Flat 1 within the block that generates income to help moderate the service charge. This flat was recently valued at £275,000.

Compare the maintenance charges at Chartcombe to any other local retirement block. The maintenance is scheduled up to 2022/3. Blocks of a similar size would be over £5000 a year. Over the last 4 years the blocks have had a lighting update at £60k, communal carpets replaced at £42k, £38k spent on the lifts, and £29k on replacing the entry phone system. The atrium has also been painted, the exterior of the blocks have been painted, and new CCTV installed.

Making your way into the flat you will find yourself in the hallway. To your left hand side you will be greeted by beautiful double French doors leading you through to the living room which is very generously sized. The living room would fit a dining table in wonderfully as everything else. The living room also benefits from a second set of French doors leading into your very own south facing sun room with extensive sliding doors onto a small and cute garden patio, perks of being a ground floor flat.

Kitchen conveniently sized with low and high level cupboards, built in appliances such as electric hob, oven and grill, fridge freezer, and Bosch washing machine. 2 perfectly sized double bedrooms one of which benefits from an en suite with a brand new walk in shower fitted.

Hallway carpet floored with 3 separate storage rooms located throughout. Video door entry pad, Care Tech care line and internal phone to make calls to other flats or main office.

If you have visitors there are 2 serviced guest suite (double or twin) which are available at £35 per suite per night.

The owner rented the flat after exchange at £895pcm until her property sold. This same opportunity is available.
