Bedrooms: 2
Tucked away behind the wooden gates facing the village pond are 25 properties which make up Church Place. Built in the mid-1990s, it was designed for people 55+ ( one owner must be this age ) looking for a relaxed home to enable a carefree life in a friendly, secure community, without the stresses of garden and property maintenance. it is equally useful to know that your home is secure and well looked after by the estate managers, if you are away for short or extended periods.

The houses and a few apartments face two beautiful courtyards. Owners avoided the isolation which so many experienced in the last two years, because they were able to keep in touch with neighbours and friends across garden fences or at a distance in the courtyards. This peaceful haven has very little road noise; yet it is only a few minutes' level stroll past the village pond to reach Ickenham's shops, library, Compass theatre, bus stops and the step-free Ickenham tube station.

Church Place is managed by Cognatum (a not-for-profit organisation). A management couple live on site to provide a friendly service, dealing with external property maintenance and tending the extensive communal grounds to a high standard. They are on call 24/7 in case of emergencies. This offers peace of mind for owners and their relatives, especially those at a distance.

They also look after the communal laundry, a guest suite (bookable for visiting friends and relatives) and a lovely, restored barn used for social events.

The rooms are generously sized, so you can be confident that your existing furniture will fit with ease. Wide doorways, a spacious ground floor shower room and a first-floor bathroom give plenty of options. Every property has a garage.

This two bedroom terraced house is offered to the market with no upper chain.

Entrance hall with glazed doors leading into the lounge
