Durdham Park, Redland
A spacious, 2 double bedroom, first floor retirement apartment, of circa 950 sq. ft., located within the prestigious development of Carfax Court which occupies a quiet residential location adjacent to Durdham Downs and benefits from communal facilities including guest suites, communal drawing room, laundry area and landscaped gardens, courtyard and garage. Carfax Court provides a variety of communal facilities for the benefit of residents, including a drawing room and two well-furnished double guest suites which can be booked at a nominal charge through the resident secretary. All these areas are fully carpeted, and the drawing room is tastefully furnished. There is also lift access to all apartments in sections of the development over two storeys in height. There is a laundry/utility room with a range of washing machines and tumble dryers together with a sink unit. This facility is for the free use of residents and is covered by the service charge. Lighting in communal areas is by time switch, photoelectric cell or push-button as circumstance best dictate. All areas within the development are protected by a fire alarm system, and static equipment (such as extinguishers and fire blankets) is amply provided. Access to Carfax Court is through two stone pillared gateways on the Durdham Park frontage, and additional pedestrian access direct to the Downs. Gravelled drives give access to garages and parking – spaces available by arrangement. The main landscaping feature is the formal courtyard over which one approaches the separate entrances to the groups of apartments forming the new build section, which is where apartment 12 is situated. The grounds are enclosed by a fine old stone wall with grassed areas, specimen shrubs and the retention of many mature trees. All service areas such as refuse stores, boiler rooms and intake rooms are carefully concealed within the development so that the maintenance of essential services may be carried out as unobtrusively as possible. To enhance privacy further, centralised postal and delivery boxes are provided in hall areas. Accommodation: entrance hall, sitting/dining room, kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, shower room, separate wc. Located in a peaceful spot, backing onto Durdham Downs and just a short distance from the amenities on Blackboy Hill and so to Whiteladies Road and similarly to Waitrose in the opposite direction. Carfax Court has been carefully designed to provide residents with accommodation of the highest quality within a scheme that combines ease of living with privacy and independence, in an area convenient both for shopping and leisure facilities. Sold with no onward chain so a prompt move is possible.
