Provision has been made for a television, a small refrigerator and private telephone. Residents are invited to discuss the right to include any personal furniture and possessions within the unit.

Fairbank Crescent Villas are fully self-contained and consist of two bedrooms, kitchen, an open living area extending to a private patio and all other modern convenience, including an enclosed garage.

Tenure to a Villa is by way of a lifetime residency agreement with a weekly maintenance fee covering items such as insurance, communal lighting expenses and garden maintenance.

The occupier of the Villa is responsible for telephone, electricity, internal maintenance and insurance on personal property.

This alternative allows independent living while providing the security of a Villa complex.
