Stratton and King are delighted to be marketing this wonderful two double bedroom ground floor apartment at the highly sought after Charlotte Lodge in Eastleigh. The apartment has a lovely living room which has a door leading to the patio area and a feature electric fireplace with attractive surround. The kitchen is finished with high gloss white units and wood effect worktops and is filled with light from the window overlooking the gardens. The kitchen is fitted with appliances including a fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, oven, hob and extractor hood. Both bedrooms are generous double rooms with windows overlooking the communal gardens. The master bedroom also benefits from a built in wardrobe. The shower room is tiled with a curved glass shower, toilet and a washbasin with cupboard below and lighted mirror unit above.
Charlotte Lodge has beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the building and a private car park and buggy store with charging points for the owners. Charlotte Lodge is heated by a super efficient ground source heat pump which provides heating and hot water for the apartment and the cost of this is included in the service charge.
Charlotte Lodge is a beautiful development of 31 one and two bedroom retirement apartments located in the town of Eastleigh, part of the picturesque Hamble Valley area which stretches along the River Hamble and Solent. It is named after the local novelist, Charlotte Mary Yonge, who in 1868 gave the town of Eastleigh its name.
The lodge is opposite Eastleigh Park and bandstand and ideally placed for the town centre shops and amenities, which include The Swan Shopping Centre, an indoor shopping centre with more than 40 retailers and a good range of restaurant and leisure venues including a 9-screen cinema.
Eastleigh is also home to The Point, a contemporary performance space that offers a diverse programme of dance, theatre, comedy, film and music. The venue also boasts a cafe bar and a beautiful atrium where you can enjoy pre-theatre dining before selected performances.
Two local country parks, the green flag winning Itchen Valley Park and Lakeside Country Park provide acres of lakes, meadows and woodlands abundant in birds and wildlife to enjoy.
Local transport is excellent with regular buses around town and regular train services to London Waterloo, Portsmouth, Salisbury and Poole. Southampton Airport is also close by for international flights.
Charlotte Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront. The 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 secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.
Charlotte Lodge’s manager, Simon, is on hand throughout the day to support the Owners and keep the development in perfect shape as well as arranging 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 150 Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
Charlotte Lodge is managed by the award-winning Millstream Management Services, working closely with Churchill Retirement Living and Stratton & King to maintain the highest standards of maintenance and service for every lodge and owner.
Charlotte Lodge requires at least one apartment Owner to be over the age of 60 with any second Owner over the age of 55. Each apartment is completely self-contained with its own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it. When you fancy some company, you’ll find the Owners’ Lounge a popular and relaxed place to meet.
Charlotte Lodge has a private car park exclusively for the use of Owners to the rear of the Lodge.
