A well-presented, generously proportioned 1-bedroom retirement apartment in Cedar Lodge, Southgate, a central neighbourhood of Crawley. Cedar Lodge was built Circa 1986 by Messer's Hanover Homes and consists of 38 one- and two-bedroom apartments. It has a friendly atmosphere with 2 resident lounges, laundry room, scooter store and weekly social activities & services organised by the residents in conjunction with the estate warden, who is onsite several days a week. The apartments benefit from communal parking for residents and a fresh interior, with all communal areas and the lift has been very recently refurbished.

The apartment itself has an entrance hallway with 2 floor-to-ceiling storage cupboards and a spacious lounge/dining room, as one of the original 2 bedrooms was opened up to extend the living space. It is drenched in natural light from the windows which, rather than facing onto the road, overlook the beautiful, well-kept communal gardens, where residents often sit out together in the summer. Furthermore, there is an open plan refitted kitchen, a double bedroom with large built-in wardrobe and a modern refitted shower room.

Southgate benefits from a local shopping parade, medical centre and community centre. Cedar Lodge is located within walking distance of the town centre and Crawley's bus station and mainline train station. As well as many shops, the town centre hosts a library, Crawley Museum, the Memorial Gardens and several lovely places to sit and have tea/coffee. The popular Goffs Park is also nearby, featuring a lake, pitch and putt and a ride-on model railway for the adventurous (or their grandchildren!). NO CHAIN.
