Sandalwood is a most attractive retirement apartment development, comprising an attractive white rendered Grade II listed property fronting Comberton Road with the addition of a substantial new build extension to the rear, in which Apartment 5 is situated to the ground floor.

The development provides a secure, gated environment for the over 65s, within well maintained grounds including colourful communal gardens and a lawned area to the rear. There is also a shared residents car park with a limited number of spaces. The location is well placed for access to the railway station approximately 250 yards away, whilst Comberton Road is served by a bus route giving easy access to the town centre.

Apartment 5 is a spacious ground floor property which enjoys the particularly nice feature of French windows opening out from the living room onto a sheltered west facing patio area which, whilst being part of the communal grounds, nonetheless provides the distinct benefit for the occupants of Apartment 5 of being able to step outside on a warm and sunny day.

The secure communal entrance lobby for the building gives way to the private entrance door to No.5, opening into a useful inner hallway which could provide useful storage for a mobility scooter or similar.

The property is well appointed throughout, with quality touches such as the brushed steel light switches and plug sockets. Windows are all double glazed within wooden frames. More importantly the property also features thermostatically controlled underfloor heating with gas bills and hot water included within the annual service charge.

The lounge is just over 19ft in length overall, opening directly into the breakfast kitchen area which is equipped with a range of wall and base cabinets, height adjustable granite work surfaces, tile effect flooring and integral appliances to include electric oven, ceramic hob, hood, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and plumbing for an automatic washing machine. There is also space within the kitchen for a breakfast table and chairs.

The well proportioned double bedroom has a sash window to the front elevation and an in-built double wardrobe closet plus dressing area with doorway through to the spacious en-suite shower room which features an easy access large shower tray in tiled surround plus pedestal hand basin, low level wc and extractor fan.

The site is administered by assisted living specialists St Cloud Care, who also run the adjacent Holmwood care home. Residents of Sandalwood are able to order delivery of hot meals from Holmwood, at very reasonable cost. Laundry services are available upon request at an additional cost. Furthermore a warden from Holmwood visits each apartment at Sandalwood five days a week to briefly check on the well being of residents.

Whilst residents can be as independent as they wish, there is also a communal lounge area and a further upstairs communal room with kitchen facilities and lift, should residents wish to socialise or organise family gatherings.

Tenure is leasehold for a period of 99 years commencing 1st January 2009 with a ground rent of £250.00 per annum currently payable. A service charge, (currently £320 per calender month/ £3840 per annum) is payable which INCLUDES ALL HEATING AND WATER BILLS plus maintenance of the grounds and communal areas together with buildings insurance.
