An immaculate, ground floor, two-bedroom apartment overlooking landscaped gardens. The property is located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 65s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the UK's leading companies in retirement housing.
Set in a wooded and airy suburb on the north side of Winchester, Wyke Mark is an estate of spacious two-bedroom apartments overlooking a beautifully-landscaped horseshoe-shaped courtyard. All the apartments have video entry, a patio and either a balcony or roof terrace, and are serviced by lifts. Local shops, including a bank, chemist, newsagent and supermarket are just a short walk to the south end of Dean Lane.
Winchester, just two miles down the road, is a wonderful city with a famous cathedral, college and many fine buildings, in addition to a number of pubs, restaurants and shops. Rich in history and culture, the town offers many pleasant diversions, such as the annual Hat Fair celebration of street theatre, a regular farmers’ market with around 100 stalls and a constant stream of entertaining plays and concerts at the Theatre Royal and the Tower Arts Centre. Winchester also has a mainline train station. Those looking for natural beauty will also find much to be admired in the area, with the River Itchen and the South Downs close by.
Cognatum Estates maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a personal alarm system in each property and resident estate managers are on hand to provide support and help when needed, making this an ideal 'Lock Up & Leave' property. A guest suite provides comfortable accommodation for family and friends and a minibus is available to take residents on regular shopping and other trips.
The cost of providing these services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 65 years of age.
150 year lease (from 2003). No ground rent.
