The historic and cultural Spa town of Great Malvern is only a mile away. Here there is an even wider choice of facilities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium.

Transport communications are excellent. There is a mainline railway station less than quarter of a mile away in Malvern Link and Junction 7 of the M5 motorway at Worcester is about 6 miles.

Clarence Park Village is a highly regarded complex of homes for the over 55's which was originally conceived, designed and completed approximately six years ago. It is run by the Platform Housing Group and has a deserved reputation for the way its is run and for its facilities which include an IT suite, library, restaurant, bar, lounge, coffee shop, craftroom, a health and beauty salon, games room, conservatory and even a village hall function room. There is something for everyone and a real community spirit.

Description

Apartment 23 in on the ground floor and easily accessed both externally as doors from the lounge open out onto a small garden area or internally via the main entrance and reception area. The spacious well maintained accommodation includes a large entrance hall, lounge/dining room, a particularly well equipped kitchen (with hob, fridge freezer, oven and grill, dishwasher and washer dryer), two good sized bedrooms and a shower/wetroom with WC. It also has a very effective heating system, double glazed windows, fitted carpets and curtains.

Externally there are well maintained and mature communal grounds for the benefit of all the residents. In recent years Apartment 23 has tended to adopt the area of garden and well stocked flower border immediately outside its lounge. It should be stressed however that this is not officially included in the tenure of the apartment itself. There is plenty of room for residents and visitors to park although it should be noted that individual spaces are not formally allocated and therefore operate on a first come, first served basis. Clarence Park benefits from a well being nurse visiting three times a week and regular car services (available upon request for an extra cost)

The accommodation of Apartment 23 is described as follows.
