This leasehold first floor apartment is on the market with Rostons of Chester, who are inviting offers of over £230,000.
There's no chain, and there are 991 years left on the lease.
It's one of several flats that make up the development on School Hill called The Hermitage, named after the grand old house that once stood on the site.
It might well suit a single person or couple looking to downsize and bid farewell to the task of gardening - the Hermitage is benefited by communal gardens that are always very well looked after. Here, there's space and colour, along with peace and quiet, and in the better weather the gardens are a pleasing place to while away some time.
Perhaps the apartment's strongest point is its proximity to Heswall Lower Village. It's just a very short walk down to Village Road and its shops, services, cafe, hairdressers and garage should your car need a service, repairs or its MOT test.
Speaking of which, the apartment has its own single car garage, accessed from School Hill, and accessed through a remote control up-and-over door.
The Black Horse pub and entertainment like the popular Jazz Night are literally two minutes away, and on the opposite side of the road stands St Peter's church, along with its excellent community centre.
School Hill is kind of steep, but it's still not too arduous a walk to Heswall shopping centre, and Tesco is even closer. On the way you'll pass pretty Dawstone Park, another handy place to relax - or entertain grandchildren in the play area.
Flat 1 shapes up like this: the communal entrance rises via a short flight of stairs to the flat's door which opens onto a long entrance hall. There's an L-shaped lounge and dining area, and a modern fitted kitchen. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a dressing area, which was fashioned from the former small, third bedroom. The second bedroom is a good size and also has fitted storage space. There's a three piece shower room, a utility room and cloakroom.
It's our understanding that there is a small ground rent to pay, along with a service charge which, again, is reasonable.
