Occupying the favoured second floor (accessed via a lift) of this prestigious apartment complex, is a larger-than-average one-bedroom apartment in The Cloister. This block is a more recent addition to the Glebelands estate and was built to provide secure, independent living within a community setting, restricted to those who are over 55 years of age. The design is a triumph: Set around a central courtyard, it’s not uncommon to see groups of residents playing cards and enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of something refreshing whilst enjoying the last of the evening sunshine. The apartment itself comprises a large reception room with French doors onto a charming balcony over-looking the aforementioned courtyard below, a semi open-plan fitted kitchen, large double bedroom and a wet room. Whilst in perfectly good condition, the property also offers scope for an incoming purchaser to put their own stamp on it. Communal facilities include a residents reception room, three guest suites, several acres of both manicured and informal gardens and a 'charge room' for those with electric scooters. A paid bus service runs to town twice per week, although it is only a short stroll from the top of Woolf Drive.
There is a fantastic sense of community with The Cloister, which is one reason it is so rare for property to come to the open market.
