Property description

31, windmill close, barbourne, worcester

An exceptional and well-appointed cottage-style bungalow within this small, select and quietly situated retirement development off York Place on the northern side of the City, offering privacy and independence within a secure ‘ semi-sheltered’ environment. Windmill Close comprises a small development of both flats and bungalows unobtrusively located yet within easy reach of both local amenities at Barbourne, Upper Tything, The Tything and Worcester City Centre.

There is a Resident Manager on hand and the development includes a Guest Suite for the use of visiting relatives (by arrangement) and a communal lounge adjoining the Manager’s Office for use of the residents and for the occasional activity: There is also a Laundry if required, There are fully maintained garden areas and there is Ample Parking for both residents and guests alike.

No 31 comprises one of the cottage style bungalows overlooking the courtyard within the lower section of the development. The bungalow has a bright southerly aspect from the rear with direct access to the pleasant and fully maintained gardens. The property has been conscientiously maintained, is well-presented and includes both double-glazing and slimline nightstore heating.

No 31 differs from some of the other bungalows on the development by virtue of a slightly different layout- which we feel to be both ‘user friendly’ and advantageous.

Porch, Lounge/Dining Room with feature fire surround, Inner Hallway, Fitted Kitchen having a good range of units and wall cupboards also Oven, Hob and Extractor, Bedroom One, (Double) with fitted wardrobes, Bedroom Two (12’) with built-in wardrobe and Luxury Bathroom with Shower.

Whilst the ‘semi-sheltered environment’ (each property having direct contact to the Manager’s Office via the emergency pull-cord system the rooms as specified, in addition to the communal facilities described) is to be emphasised for the direct benefit of intending purchasers and of welcome concern / reassurance to relatives, it is the retention of privacy and independence which is perhaps the hallmark of Windmill Close. Bungalows within the development are readily saleable and early / comprehensive inspection is unhesitatingly recommende
