Hanover Gardens comprises 20 one bedroom apartments, which overlook the gardens. An estate manager oversees buildings and grounds maintenance plus repairs, as well as helping with access to further help and support if required. The estate is gated at both ends, providing extra security and peace of mind, and is often referred to as a little oasis. During the summer months the residents enjoy sitting out in the gardens having chats, barbecues and drinks together.
