Overall Description

This apartment forms part of this historic Grade II Listed building that originally was Christ's Hospital Girls School and still retains impressive original features such as the clock tower, marble hall and spiral staircase. The apartment is part of the oldest part of the building so has high ceilings and sash windows which give it a light and spacious feel throughout. There is a good-sized kitchen, sitting room, entrance hall, master bedroom and modernised shower-room. The site is managed by Home Group and has a warden on site in the front office and each flat is connected to that office via the Careline intercom system giving residents peace-of-mind that there is someone on hand if they are needed. There is also an emergency pull-chord in each room and a separate button attached to a lanyard. Residents have use of the large communal lounge and attractively landscaped communal gardens and there is a resident's association and regular events and activities organised by the Home Group team, so there is a lively community at Chauncy Court if you wish to take part. Residents need to be over 60 years to live at Chauncy Court.

Location

This apartment sits in a very good central location just a two or three minutes' walk from Hertford East Station, around five minutes' walk from the town centre, just around the corner from the bus station and a short drive from the A10, so it is very conveniently situated. Hertford has a very good range of local facilities such as shops, restaurants, and supermarkets (Tesco and M&S Food are all a short walk away), yet is also an attractive and very pleasant place to live. There is a Boots close-by and the doctors, dentists and opticians are all within walking distance. The town is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside and has a wide range of leisure pursuits close to hand, including Hartham Common with its riverside walks, Activity Centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
