The Giles Gate development is spread across three separate blocks. Number 28 is on the east side, almost opposite the communal lounge and conservatory, and is therefore very centrally located.
The flat is on the ground floor. On entering the apartment the bedrooms are on either side of the hallway with the main bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, on the left, and the smaller bedroom is on the right.
The bathroom is just beyond the smaller bedroom, this has been well-fitted as a wet room which is ideal as older people often suffer with mobility issues and cannot cope with a bath. There is a vanity unit and W.C. on the left of the doorway. The bathroom is nicely appointed.
The sitting room is at the rear of the property with a door out to the communal gardens; many residents on the ground floor take advantage of their position to sit outside their back doors on warm sunny days. The sitting room is across the rear of the flat with an opening leading to a refitted kitchen consisting of cream, gloss, units and integrated appliances plus a decent sized airing cupboard.
The House Manager is available in her office Monday-Friday 9-5 to deal with any matters arising on the development and to offer advice and assistance to residents. She does not offer care. Giles Gate is well-maintained and well-presented having undergone a £50k+ facelift in the summer of 2023. The communal garden is always lovely and there is ample, un-allocated, parking for residents and visitors alike. It is a nice, friendly place to live and convenient for the local shops and social events.
The apartment has gas-fired central heating and double glazing throughout and offers the owner the benefit of independent living, with the comfort of being within a safe and secure community.
