I was reviewing some of the past questions and noticed yours really had not been answered to what you had asked. Manchester is a great city and is made up of quite a few wonderful area's that you may be interested in. Most often retirees coming into our area are looking for homes that do not require extensive maintenace to having everything done for them. There are a couple of great over 55 communities as well as some great condominium communities that may suit your needs. There are detached units where you are in a stand alone house, but all teh exterior maintenance is taken care of for you. There are townhouse units whoch have an up and down and some with first floor bedrooms and then there are garden style units where you have a common hallway but all libving space on the same floor. The finer buildings have elevators and some with garage under. Depending on what your need or wants are and what price range you are looking in, i can send you some sheets now so you can check out the communities. You wont be able to narrow down any specific units now as you will want to wait until Feb 2010 to get specific listings as what is for sale now, may not be available then. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and i look forward to assisting you. Looking at diiferent communities now will help you when it comes time to look at units. i can send you pictures and descriptions of each based on what you want. Thank you for your question.
