On entering the village drive straight across the centre as signposted to Killerton. After approximately 150 yards take the turning left into Wyndham Road proceeding for a further 300 yards or so and The Meads can be found on the right hand side.

This is a splendid opportunity to purchase a two bedroom ground floor retirement apartment within this very select and highly desirable development at The Meads which is an extremely popular and compact development of just 33 similar one and two bedroom apartments specifically for retirement (minimum age requirement is 60 years). There are some excellent communal facilities at The Meads including a wonderful sitting room, laundry room and a guest suite available by prior request for a short stay and visiting. A manager is available on site from 9.00am-1.00pm during the week and after this time a rapid response call care line cord is situate in each room of the apartment. There is residents and visitors parking on site.

The Meads is extremely well located in a level position within close proximity of the centre of the village and all facilities including the local village doctors' surgery and shops. Silverton is a pretty and very desirable village with a thriving community together with a range of local shopping facilities including a general store with butchers and deli plus post office facilities, there are two pubs, churches and a well performing primary school. The mobile library visits regularly as does the fish and chip van too! There is a wider range of shopping, recreational and cultural facilities available in the Cathedral City and the county town of Exeter, about 7.5 miles away and there is a regular bus service. The village is extremely well located, the M5 motorway is easily accessible at junction 28 Cullompton as is the North Devon Link Road at Tiverton and the M5 access at Sowton. Rail services are available from Exeter and at Tiverton Parkway near Sampford Peverell.

This apartment has been beautifully looked after and is now superbly presented throughout having just be re-decorated throughout and has new carpet in the hallway and main bedroom and is ready for immediate occupation. The development was originally constructed about 25 years ago and is overall well maintained by the management company.

In our opinion this apartment is probably the best positioned in the whole building with accommodation which is extremely spacious for apartments of this type. Being on the ground floor with very easy and straight forward access from the communal front hallway the accommodation includes its own entrance hall with large airing cupboard and storage cupboard. From the hall there is a doorway to the large sitting room which has an electric fire set in an attractive fire surround and space for a small dining table and chairs and has its own independent access directly out to a balcony overlooking the communal garden with steps down. From the sitting room there is access to the well fitted kitchen which includes brand new appliances; fridge/freezer, built in double oven and ceramic hob with extractor hood over together with a good array of built in base units and work surfaces plus matching wall cupboards.In addition there are two good bedrooms, both of which look out over the rear communal garden, both with built in wardrobes and dressing table in the main bedroom. The good sized bathroom includes an electric shower over the bath, w.c and wash basin and is part tiled.

The apartment is Upvc double glazed, there is electric night store heating and is carpeted where appropriate. This is a great apartment ready to move straight into and early inspection is very strongly advised. Service Charge: Ground Rent: Lease: 125 years from May 1992
