A charming ground floor retirement apartment in the original Manor House at Riverside Gardens forming part of the overall retirement scheme.
This unusual opportunity is the result of the conversion and refurbishment of Riverside House and the adjoining cottages which form part of the Riverside Gardens retirement development. This particular dwelling is positioned on the corner of Mill Street and Bridge Street and retains many lovely period features including a bay window with shutters, beams and a Georgian glass panelled internal door. The property has been fully modernised and has an up to date kitchen, independent shower room and modern white bathroom suite, all of which blend nicely with the intrinsic character. It has the advantage of three entrances so it is truly independent. All the apartments and cottages at Riverside House benefit from the amenities of Riverside Gardens including beautifully landscaped grounds adjacent to the river, a laundry room, residents lounge and a site managers office.
