Bedrooms: 2
A rare opportunity to purchase a UNIQUE 2 BEDROOM GROUND FLOOR RETIREMENT APARTMENT being part of an original Regency style villa in the highly favoured and convenient Old Moulsham area of Chelmsford. The apartment really MUST be internally viewed to be fully appreciated!

This retirement apartment really does offer interesting accommodation not normally found with this type of property. It has over 8ft high ceiling heights, double glazed sash style windows and comprises an entrance porch, impressive entrance hall, lovely dual aspect lounge with feature square bay to the front, off which is a compact kitchen area, there are two bedrooms, one of which also has a bay window to the front and there is a good size bathroom. It benefits from its own private entrance door direct from Moulsham Street and also has an internal door giving access into the main complex itself. Ideal for those retired buyers looking for the benefits of a retirement complex but looking for something just that little bit different.

Albion Court is situated just off Moulsham Street on the corner of Queen Street on the fringe of the City centre within minutes walking distance of the High Street. This complex is for males age 65 or over and females age 60 or over. It comprises 38 one bedroom flats and 12 two bedroom flats with its own landscaped gardens and private car park. The complex has its own House Manager and each apartment is equipped with emergency pull cords which are operational 24 hours a day. Albion Court was built in 1988 and has facilities within the complex including a lift, a resident's lounge, a laundry room and a guest suite is available for friends and relatives overnight stays. Each flat has its own emergency audio system with direct contact to the House Manager and the accommodation is equipped with emergency pull cords linked to the House Managers control panel together with an external 24 hour back up system. A security entry system enables residents to identify visitors before allowing them to enter. Each apartment has electric heating, double glazed windows and there is cavity wall insulation.
