The Fairways. A Popular Retirement development located on High Road, Benfleet.
Before we go into the property lets cover the location and why this development is so popular.
Firstly, nearby you have everything. Shops, bakers, butchers, hairdressers, supermarkets, bus stops, post office, and more. All within a few minutes’ walk from the development itself, meaning for someone who does not drive there is everything right ‘on their doorstep’
For those who do drive, there is plenty of parking inside the security gated entrance with spaces for visitors.
Outside there is a communal garden which has lots of patio seating during the warmer months, an outside washing line area, bin shed, and plenty of space to walk around the stretch your legs.
One of the biggest things about this property is the amount of security, you can tell from entering the building security of its residents is so important. As you enter the building itself you have a small entrance hall which opens into a spacious hallway decorated tastefully and incredibly well looked after.
There is a communal lounge to sit and socialise with other residents during the day, as well as a downstairs toilet.
The bonus here is a lift, there are stairs leading to each floor however those not able to manage the stairs have the benefit of a working lift (and a nice chair while you wait!).
So how about the property itself? Well, it is a spacious first floor, two-bedroom apartment.
you have your own private entrance which opens into a bright, large, and spacious hallway with each room coming from here. There are two large storage cupboards and space for more.
to the right you have the kitchen, which is adequate in size, there is an integrated fridge freezer, washing machine, over, hob and extractor fan. All overlooking the garden area.
Then you have two bedrooms, One double and one large single bedrooms, with the main bedroom having double door built in wardrobes.
then you have the shower room, with a brand-new double width walk in shower, basin and wc.
Lastly, we have the Lounge Diner, the perfect size for a couple to enjoy some relaxing time either with a cosy atmosphere during the winter, or with the French doors opening onto the balcony during the summer months.
Comments from the agent – Having seen a lot of properties in my ten-year career I can honestly say this is one of the cleanest and most secure developments I have seen, plus it has the benefit of having everything you could need right on your doorstep. As cliché as it sounds, I think it is a lot bigger than I expected and I could see relatives of my own enjoying living here.
Comments from the owner – My parents originally bought this property after downsizing; downsizing was a huge ask to leave the family home however the size of this property made it an easy move for them. My biggest concern was over security and I feel this building is so secure and offered so much I can see why my parents felt comfortable here.
