HouseSimple is pleased to present this property in Buckshaw Village near Chorley.

Originally the showroom apartment, this 2 bedroom apartment is part of a purpose built award-winning complex designed for independent and assisted living for the over 55's

This is a ground floor apartment with patio giving direct access to shared landscaped gardens and bowling green. This spacious apartment offers entrance hallway, with storage, open plan lounge/dining area, modern fitted kitchen with appliances and a modern fitted wet room.

The complex offers a range of facilities and services including 24-hour reception, restaurant/bar, housekeeping, maintenance and Personal care packages from in-house carers. Next to the restaurant is a communal area with library, television and internet facilities. Outings and activities are arranged by the complex as well as local committees.

Directly outside is a bus stop/service to Leyland and Chorley. The local village has shops, medical center, chemist and a large supermarket (Tescos) as well as a train station with direct links to Leyland, Preston, Bolton, Manchester etc. M6 and M61 motorway is 5-10 minute drive.

The complex is divided between independent housing, where you own your own home and assisted living which is rented accommodation. Independent living means you have the privacy and investment of your own home but with access to all the facilities of assisted living.

Owning the apartment means exactly that, friends and family can stay over and you buy and sell the property exactly the same as you would any other property. You have access to all the facilities but unlike the rental side, where services such as housekeeping and laundry are included in the rental price, you pick and choose and pay for the services you need. For example, if you need help cleaning, you can pay for the in-house cleaner or find/use your own. There is also an in-house care team who provide none medical care, anything from helping with a shower, or shopping or trip to the doctors.

Note, general services such as reception, Gardner, window cleaner are included in your monthly service charge.
