Superb retirement apartment in the ideal location.
This beautifully presented, and very modern, one bedroom top floor flat (with lift) is situated in the front block of the ever-popular Nightingale Lodge retirement complex, right in the heart of Berkhamsted town.
The apartment is very light and bright, with the windows of the kitchen, living room and bedroom all looking out onto the pretty, enclosed communal garden, which is available for use by all the residents.
The kitchen is of particular note, boasting sleek contemporary units, an eye-catching emerald green, glass splashback and plenty of storage. The bathroom too, is bright, thanks to the natural light from the window, and has a modern, off-white suite and power shower over the bath.
The communal areas, internally and externally, are well and regularly maintained, and there is a great sense of community within the development.
The location is superb - just a few yards from the High Street - and there is resident's parking too, which is so rare in the town centre.
The property comes with the usual facilities expected of a retirement apartment; 24 hour emergency alarm service, access to an estate manager, maintenance of communal areas inside and out, a communal laundry and drying room, and a guest suite available for a small charge for residents' guests.
An added bonus is there is no onward chain.

Berkhamsted itself is a busy market town, located to the West of Hertfordshire and just 30 minutes from London by train. Perhaps the town`s most prominent role in National affairs came in 1066 when William the Conqueror was handed the English Crown. Berkhamsted Castle was built following the granting of the crown, and famous names associated with it include Geoffrey Chaucer who was Clerk of Works, and Thomas Becket who was Constable of the Castle in the 12th Century. Substantial ruins of the Castle still remain today.
Today, the town is highly desirable for commuters, with excellent transport links by road and rail. The mainline train station provides a regular and direct link to London Euston in a little over 30 minutes. Major road connections nearby include the M25 (J20) and the M1 (J8 and J9). The A41 dual carriageway runs to the South of the town, providing an excellent connection to Hemel Hempstead, Watford, Tring and Aylesbury.
There is a good range of leisure facilities in the area. There is walking and riding just minutes away in the surrounding countryside and on the National Trust`s 5,000 acre Ashridge Estate, while nearby golf courses include Ashridge, Berkhamsted and The Grove. The area offers excellent schooling, including Berkhamsted School, founded in 1541, and Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.
Berkhamsted offers a wide range of shopping, from independent boutiques to national names such as Waitrose and M&S Simply Food. Milton Keynes and London are both easily accessible too.
