A detached 2 bedroom character cottage converted in 2007 with quirky and immaculate accommodation within this popular development where residents have excellent communal facilities. Southdowns Park is a Grade II listed complex which was converted from the original early Victorian St Francis Hospital. The cottage once formed the butchers shop when the hospital would have been self sufficient with its own farm. The majority of the communal gardens are located on the south side of the main building, which has been beautifully restored with the original Victorian terraced gardens where there are many sunny seating areas and includes a designated barbecue area which residents can book for their sole use and functions.
The complex is well-managed on a day-to-day basis by the full-time and friendly estate manager and residents enjoy a high level of security, use of a gymnasium and both waste and the domestic water rates are included in the annual service charges. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises: a spacious triple aspect sitting room opening into an equally spacious kitchen/dining area which has a high vaulted ceiling with glass panels and a full range of integrated appliances. The first floor accommodation benefits from high vaulted ceilings with exposed painted timber crossbeams and panelling, built-in wardrobes with glass sliding doors, long glazed windows and comprises: two bedrooms and a bathroom which is fitted with a modern white suite to include a bath and separate shower cubicle. The property is decorated in neutral colours and has a 'beach house' type feel to it which has to be viewed internally to be fully appreciatedTenure: leasehold – 125 years from 1997
