Stratton and King are delighted to be marketing this lovely one bedroom apartment which has access to a wonderful courtyard area, directly from the Lounge. The apartment is offered with no forward chain and is well presented throughout. The Lounge is L-shaped and has ample space for living and dining room furniture. A door leads to the Courtyard where there are numerous, colourful, plants and shrubs. The Kitchen, which is accessed via the Lounge, has a range of eye and base level units with working surfaces over and tiled splashbacks. There is a range of built in appliances which include a waist height oven, hob with extractor hood over, fridge and freezer. The Bedroom is a good size double room which has a view over the courtyard. There is a useful built in wardrobe and plenty of space for additional furniture if required. The well proportioned bathroom offers a bath with shower over, a WC and a wash hand basin with vanity unit beneath. Perfectly complementing the apartment is a storage cupboard, located in the hallway.
Built to the very highest standards throughout both the Apartment and shared spaces, every detail has been considered from fitting plenty of plug sockets and illuminated light switches to the beautifully landscaped gardens that wrap around the rear and side of the lodge, nothing has been missed. The gardens have potting sheds and a greenhouse for the keen gardener and plenty of shaded places to sit and relax with a good book. There is a private Owners’ car park to the front of the lodge.
Churchill Lodge is an exclusive development of 51 one and two bedroom retirement apartments in the heart of Lilliput. Named as the flagship development of Churchill Retirement Living, the lodge is amongst some of the most exclusive and desirable properties in the world. Just a few doors down from the lodge are a bakery, fish and chip shop, convenience store, florist and hairdressers with the local doctors’ surgery and pharmacy just up the road. At the top of the road is Evening Hill with stunning views of Poole harbour, and an excellent viewing point for the summer fireworks. Being so close to the coast, 7 miles of Blue Flag beaches are within easy reach and it’s easy to travel further afield to Corfe Castle and Swanage across the chain ferry or in land towards the New Forest National Park. Transport links are excellent with a bus stop within 100 yards of the lodge to the town centre as well as direct trains from Poole into London Waterloo and Bournemouth International Airport just a few miles away.
Churchill Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront. This apartment has an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. A Careline integrated intruder alarm, secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.
Churchill Lodge’s manager, Philip, is on hand throughout the day to support the Owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Philip arranges many regular events in the Owners’ Lounge from coffee mornings to games afternoons. For any visiting guests, the furnished twin Guest Suite is perfect and available for just £15 per night for 1 visitor and £20 (£10 each) for 2 visitors. The same excellent value is available across more than 100 Churchill Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
