This property occupies an enviable position in the development that benefits from a sizeable south-west facing part walled garden that wraps around two sides of the house.
It does require redecoration and maintenance but the kitchen and bathroom both have modern fittings. The internal accommodation includes a south facing reception room and its shape provides a natural dining area that opens into a well-fitted kitchen.
A large double-glazed conservatory extends the full width of the house providing a further reception area opening into the garden. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, both with an open outlook over the garden towards the town centre. The bathroom provides both bath and shower facilities and there is a ground floor cloakroom.
The mature communal gardens are a particular feature of Orchard Walk with extensive lawned areas and a variety of specimen trees and shrubs. There is private parking and a resident warden for assistance.
