A one bedroom fourth floor apartment in this mccarthy stone retirement living development for the over 60's, situated within the walls of chester, so ideally located for Chester amenities, parks and river.

This McCarthy & Stone development, Forest Court, takes its name from Forest Street, which lies at the rear of the development and is just around the corner from Foregate Street, one of the city's main thoroughfares with all of the shops, cafes, restaurants and other amenities you would expect of a bustling city. Within 100 yards of the development lies the remains of a Roman amphitheater, demonstrating Chester's origins as a Roman fortress. Almost opposite you will find the entrance to Grosvenor Park where you can walk through the tranquil gardens and enjoy the sounds and sights of the River Dee.

The development has a dedicated House Manager on site during the day to take care of things and make you feel at home. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates and security systems. All energy costs of the laundry room, homeowners lounge and other communal areas are also covered in the service charge. For your peace of mind, the development has CCTV door entry and 24-hour emergency call systems, should you require assistance. The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability) which has an en-suite shower room, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV.
