A rare opportunity to purchase a single bedroom bungalow with private garden within this well-favoured retirement home in the centre of Watlington. The rooms are bright and well-proportioned and have a pleasant outlook onto the lovely landscaped communal gardens that are a particular feature. Orchard Walk is no more than a five minute level walk from the centre of Watlington and benefits from attractively landscaped communal gardens, a resident warden and private car park.
Watlington is reputedly England’s smallest town with its origins dating from the 6th century. The town has a range of sports facilities that embrace football and cricket as well as tennis, squash and bowls. There are good local shops including a first class butcher and delicatessen and some excellent restaurants and pubs. Watlington Primary school and Rainbow Corner day nursery and pre-school have an ‘outstanding’ ofsted rating and senior education is provided by the well-regarded Icknield Community College. The Chiltern Hills rise above the town and offer some of the finest landscapes in south-east England. There is much on offer here for outdoor enthusiasts, cyclists and walkers as The Icknield Way (Ridgeway National Trail) passes close to the town. Watlington is also the heartland of the re-introduced Red Kite that now soar above the town’s roof tops.
The development has attractive and well-maintained landscaped gardens around which the houses and flats are situated. There are a wide variety of specimen trees, mature shrubs and well-stocked herbaceous borders together with shaped lawns, ornamental pond and seating areas.
There is a private car park for the exclusive use of residents and visitors.
There is a resident warden who manages the day to day running of the development and whom assists residents when required.
