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 national and independent local 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 the most beautiful of locations at the head of Lake Windermere with mountain scenery all around.

This bright, dual aspect apartment is located on the quiet side of the building and is immaculately presented, enjoying a truly delightful first floor location which 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. The sunny south facing living room offers plenty of space for both relaxing and entertaining and is supplemented by a sweet little balcony which arguably enjoys even better views and there is a separate dining kitchen with a side window. There are two south facing bedrooms and a lovely modern shower room with a three piece suite. There is a communal sitting room on the ground floor, great for get-togethers with friends and socialising with fellow residents, 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.
