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.
The apartment enjoys a truly delightful top floor location, with superb views of Wansfell from all of the principle rooms, and not least from the lovely little balcony off the living room where you can also see the Fairfield Horseshoe.
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. The sunny living room offers plenty of space for both relaxing and dining and is supplemented by a sweet little balcony, both with fells views and there is a separate kitchen. There are two bedrooms also enjoying that splendid view and a brand new 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.
