McCarthy & Stone - Sydney Court AL, DA14
Sydney Court is an Assisted Living development in Sidcup, located along a quiet leafy street just behind the lovely Waring Park. It’s ideal for those looking for a home away from the hustle and bustle of London, but close to larger towns like Dartford. Sydney Court houses 28 one-bedroom apartments and 22 two-bedroom apartments for those over 70.
These apartments offer beautiful green views across Waring Park, a 13-acre park and leisure ground with four tennis courts, a football pitch, a cricket pitch and children’s playground. There is an Arts and Adult Education Centre at the end of the road. The main Station Road, with restaurants and shops, is nearby, and Sidcup railway station is less than ½ a mile away. You can catch direct trains to London Charing Cross and Cannon Street, as well as Lewisham and Woolwich.
To celebrate the history of the town, this new Assisted Living development has been named Sydney Court to pay homage to Thomas Townshend, 1st Viscount Sydney, who resided in Frognal House, Sidcup. As well as this, Townshend was also the inspiration for the naming of Sydney in Australia.
Located in the London Borough of Bexley, Sidcup is also known as the 'Gateway to Kent', offering easy-access to an array of Kentish historic houses, gardens, castles, and National Trust properties.
Sidcup itself has a thriving town centre offering a mix of high street stores, independent shops, a library, coffee shops, and several pubs. With a large number of supermarkets on the outskirts, Sidcup is the ideal location for enjoying your retirement. For even more shopping opportunities, a local bus service runs from Sidcup to the Bluewater shopping centre located in Greenhithe, Kent, which boasts 300 stores, 60 cafes and restaurants, and a 13-screen cinema.
The area also benefits from the London Freedom Pass which gives older passengers free travel on London’s public transport systems, perfect for a trip to the West End to watch a show, or for a browse on High Street Kensington. You even enjoy a day of culture at the Natural History Museum or Afternoon Tea at the Ritz.
