A rare opportunity to purchase a newly refurbished, two double bedroom, end of terrace cottage with conservatory, garage and patio garden, on an exclusive retirement development for the over 55s.
This spacious property, which has a wonderful view of the Bluecoat Pond, has been recently refurbished to a high standard. The new, open plan kitchen diner hasfully integrated white goods, including a wine cooler and an induction hob, with Shaker style units and a stunning quartz worktop. The interior decor of the cottage has been designed in conjunction with John Lewis and includes curtain poles, curtains and blinds where fitted. All the carpets and flooring are also included in the price. There is also a refurbished wet room on the ground floor.
Bluecoat Pond, situated on the former Christ’s Hospital School dairy site, takes its name from the long blue coats still worn by the students. The Victorian pond and water tower are the centre piece of the estate’s spectacular courtyard, with the pretty brick properties surrounded by finely-landscaped gardens and grounds. Although it doesn’t officially hold village status, Christ’s Hospital has postal facilities, a chapel, a shop and a large railway station, all within easy walking distance of the estate. Christ’s Hospital School also offers a hugely varied programme of high-quality music and drama performances, held in their purpose-built theatre designed by the same architect responsible for London’s Young Vic. The town of Horsham is only a short drive away and still retains its old-world charm with a traffic-free centre, as well as an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants and an arts centre with a theatre and cinema. The local area offers many opportunities to enjoy the countryside and wildlife, with Warnham Nature Reserve, Horsham Park, Huxley's Birds of Prey Centre and Sumners Ponds all no further than seven miles from the estate.
Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the uk's leading companies in retirement housing.

The cost of providing these services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 55 years of age.
