A one bedroom retirement apartment in a purpose built development offering no chain. Benefiting from UPVC double glazing and electric storage heaters it comprises hallway, living room, kitchen, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe and modern shower room. The development offers secure accommodation with resident and visitor parking.

Constructed by McCarthy & Stone in the mid 1990's these purpose built apartments were built specifically for the over 55's with retirement, privacy and care in mind. McCarthy & Stone are the country's leading builder of such accommodation and their experience is shown with this development which gives an opportunity for meeting of other residents in the communal lounge, yet privacy within one's own home. Security is ensured by an entry phone system at ground floor level. The flat itself has strategically positioned emergency pull cords and telephone, which will automatically seek assistance should it be required. The whole development is a convivial environment and the residents organise an active social calendar that any occupier can take part in should they wish.

There is a house manager within the development and in addition to the communal lounge and kitchen, laundry room, and social events available to all residents, there is also a guest bedroom which is available by prior booking. The grounds are neatly laid out with seating areas and car parking, and a short distance from the development on Old Lode Lane is a parade of local shops serving everyday needs. Local bus services pass by which will take you into the town centre of Solihull, the City of Birmingham and nearby Sheldon with comprehensive shopping facilities.

The main shopping area in Sheldon is approximately one mile distant, and here one will find an excellent array of shops ranging from small speciality and convenience stores to a choice of major supermarkets and Superstores on the new retail park. We would estimate that a journey by car of some three miles will bring you to the junction of the A45 Coventry Road with the M42 motorway, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station, giving easy access for those wishing to holiday or those coming to visit.

The property is located on the second floor and a panel front door opens to the accommodation.
