This spacious two bedroom cottage is located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the uk's leading companies in retirement housing.

Timbermill Court’s very name hints at the history of the place, built on the site of a former sawmill in the centre of Fordingbridge, beside the water meadows of the River Avon. The cottages and apartments are set around a secluded courtyard with delightful water gardens, and look over many acres of open countryside.

Being situated in the town centre, the estate is close to Fordingbridge’s bustling high street with its wide range of shops, cafes and leisure activities. The town has an imposing bridge spanning the Avon with a striking seven arch structure and offers charming riverside walks along the Avon Valley path. Also, Fordingbridge’s position as the northern gateway to the New Forest mean that opportunities for walking, cycling and spotting wildlife abound. Nearby sights include Breamore House, an Elizabethan manor house set in acres of its own beautiful parkland, and the mosaics and courtyard ruins at Rockbourne Roman Villa.

Cognatum Estates maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a personal alarm system in each property and resident estate managers are on hand to provide support and help when needed, making this an ideal 'Lock Up & Leave' property.

There is a laundry facility on site and a guest suite provides comfortable accommodation for family and friends. A minibus is available to take residents on shopping and other trips.

The cost of providing these services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 55 years of age.

150 year lease (from 2000). No ground rent.
