Property description & features

A Well Presented First Floor Retirement Apartment Situated in this Most Convenient Location and Being Sold with the Benefit of No Upward Chain

Constructed by McCarthy & Stone in the early 1990's, these well situated apartments were built specifically for the over 60's with retirement, privacy and care in mind. McCarthy & Stone are the country's leading builder of such accommodation and their experience is shown within this development which gives an opportunity for convivial conversation and meeting of people in the communal lounge, yet privacy within one's own home. Security is ensured by an entry phone system at ground floor level. The apartment itself has strategically positioned emergency pull cords and telephone, which will automatically seek assistance should it be required.

There is a house manager within the development and in addition to the communal lounge and kitchen there is a guest's bedroom which is available by prior booking. The grounds are neatly laid out with seating areas and car parking, and just around the corner from the development is a 'Marks & Spencer' mini supermarket within the BP garage, serving everyday needs. Local bus services pass by which will take you into the town centre of Shirley, central Solihull or the City of Birmingham and its outlying suburbs. There is a doctors surgery adjacent to the development.

The main shopping area in Shirley is within ? mile of the development and here one will find an excellent array of shops ranging from small speciality and convenience stores to a choice of major supermarkets and Superstores on the Retail Park. We would estimate that a journey by car of some four miles will bring you to the junction of the A34 Stratford Road with the M42 motorway, which forms the hub of the national motorway network, and two junctions down the motorway will bring you to the National Exhibition Centre and Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station, giving easy access for those wishing to holiday or those coming to visit.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
