A very well presented first floor one bedroom apartment within this sought after 'Retirement Living Plus' development for the over 70's in the heart of Chippenham.
Situation - Just 200 metres from the centre of town, this Chippenham development is in the ideal spot. A variety of local supermarkets can be found nearby and the town centre also boasts access to a local hospital and plenty of doctors surgeries. Banks, retail stores and independent shops are also in good supply and there are even regular town markets held for those looking for a taste of traditional life.
Places of interest in the local area are varied, with John Coles Park, the Museum and Heritage Centre and Chippenham Folk Festival just a few examples. For those interested in wider travel, transport links are strong with regular bus services connecting residents to towns including Bath, Calne, Devizes, Trowbridge and Swindon. Rail links are also good and Chippenham railway station features along the main line to London Paddington. It also retains some impressive railway arches and architectural triumphs built by the famous engineer Brunel.
As an ancient riverside market town, Chippenham also has plenty of historical intrigue for those interested in living in this area. Natural attractions are also found in abundance, with the River Avon, the Cotswolds, Salisbury Plain and Birds Marsh (a large marshland of around 24 hectares or 29 acres) being just a few places in the area you might like to visit.
