Property description

Milton House is a high-quality development of well-appointed apartments designed specifically for the comfort of retired people and situated within a short bus ride of the town and close to a local park. The retirement apartments here offer many advantages to those who wish to make the most of their increased leisure and other opportunities that retirement brings. Milton House is a small community of apartments that offer comfort, support and security to all residents and an alarm in most rooms links to the telecom system providing instant support if required in an emergency. There is a residents' lounge where neighbours can meet up and attention is paid to details such as high-level sockets, double glazing and all-electric heating. There is even a guest room for a small daily charge for any visitors who cannot otherwise be accommodated.
