THE PROPERTY

A SUPERBLY PRESENTED APARTMENT OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY SET IN THIS EXCLUSIVE, GATED DEVELOPMENT WITH OUTDOOR TERRACE OFFERING FINE VIEWS. Aspley Heath became well known in the 1850's as a favoured locality because of its warm climate.

The property is built in the Regency style and is a development of 23 spacious apartments and penthouse suites with three mews properties. Of particular note are the delightful grounds of 5 acres which residents can enjoy and include fine mature trees and immaculate lawns with seating areas set around the house.
