Location Millans Court is located very close to the centre of Ambleside and can be approached from the south via Rothay Road leading along the one way system onto Compston Road. Turn left immediately before Zeffirellis cinema and second left into Millans Park. Millans Court is located on the right hand side. There is a communal car parking facility within the development and the centre of the village is just a short level stroll away. On foot from the front of the building take the left hand pedestrian foot path (passing the main door on the left) and continue to the rear of the building where there is a further access door. Lift access is gained via the main right hand portion of the building.

Description Millans Court is a highly regarded development of purpose built self contained apartments located just a short level stroll from the centre of Ambleside which is well served by a wide variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, cinemas, churches and a post office. There are good public transport links to the surrounding towns and villages and Ambleside itself occupies one of the most beautiful locations at the head of Lake Windermere with mountain scenery all around.

This beautiful and superbly improved apartment really is immaculately presented and enjoys a truly delightful top floor location, arguably one of the best in the development, enjoying superb dual aspect fell views from a nice and peaceful setting. You can admire Wansfell from the bay window of the living room, or gaze into the heart of the dramatic Fairfield Horseshoe from the Juliet balcony, even if your legs might not welcome the challenge of completing this wonderful hike so much these days.

The apartment can be accessed either via the quiet and smooth lift or via the staircase. The heated main corridor gives access to the private hallway and the well balanced accommodation. Truly immaculate and very stylishly updated, this wonderful apartment includes an excellent re-fitted kitchen and a luxury shower room, and whilst it might not sound like much, the replacement of the internal doors with ones of oak really has made a difference to the welcoming feel of this bright home. There are two good sized bedrooms, and a splendid dual aspect living room with stunning views to go alongside those splendid kitchen and shower rooms.

There is a communal sitting room on the ground floor, great for get-togethers with friends and socialising with fellow residents when times permit, along with a communal laundry room. A guests bedroom is available for visiting family members and friends within the building should the two bedrooms within the apartment not be sufficient. There are pretty communal gardens and on-site car parking facilities.

Millans Court itself was purpose built in 1987 to provide accommodation in this lovely setting exclusively for those aged 55 years and over with emergency pull cords in each of the principal rooms, and an intercom connection to the warden.

Seen by many as the perfect solution for a comfortable and relaxed retirement, providing independence for the owner and peace of mind from the family, Millans Court enjoys an excellent reputation locally and early viewing is highly recommended.
