The Property

Orchard Court lies on the southern edge of the town and is a sheltered housing complex built in 1984 exclusively for the over 55s. It comprises forty flats and six bungalows. Number 17 is a well presented ground floor floor flat, in an enviable position on the end of a block. A gas fired boiler supplies central heating and domestic hot water with radiators throughout the property. The external windows have recently been replaced and the communal areas have been redecorated, from funds accumulated via the service charge.

The Accommodation

Communal ground floor door with intercom and private front door leading into the hall. This has a useful broom cupboard and the large airing cupboard, housing the hot water cylinder. The L shaped sitting/dining room benefits from a pleasant outlook into the complex and has a fireplace surround with a gas fire. A sliding door leads off to the kitchen which has a built-in electric cooker and hob. There is under-counter space for a fridge, freezer and washing machine. At the rear are two bedrooms, and there is a bathroom which has been re-fitted in recent years.


There are communal gardens and clothes drying areas at the rear.


A short distance from the flat is a row of garages and No 17 owns the garage marked 18, the third one in from the right hand end. Adjacent is a tap for car washing.


A 99 year lease was created in June 1984. The current service charge is £185 per calendar month and includes maintenance of the communal areas, window cleaning, building insurance and part-time assistance from the warden. The ground rent is fixed at £80 per annum for the flat and £10 for the garage.


All mains connected. The Potterton gas boiler in the kitchen supplies central heating and hot water. Council Tax band B - £1,693.23 payable for 2024/25. EPC rating band C - 73.
