A two bedroom retirement apartment in this retirement living plus development

Introduction:

This is a spacious two bed apartment located on the first floor of this super and convenient development. A lift service provides easy access to the wonderful facilities of Thomas Court, yet the apartment is away from the general day-to-day activities. A good-sized living room enjoys an outlook over the Road outside and the primary School opposite ensuring there is 'never a dull moment' provided by the ever-changing street scene. An excellent fitted kitchen has a host of integrated appliances, the master bedroom has en-suite facilities there is a second double bedroom and a further wetroom.

The development was constructed in late summer of 2013 by multi-award winning McCarthy and Stone, and remains one of our most sought-after developments. This is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager who will oversee the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a Homeowners lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Homeowners also benefit from one hour of domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance.
