A SOUTH FACING ENERGY EFFICIENT ONE BEDROOM retirement apartment with JULIET BALCONY situated on the SECOND FLOOR also benefitting from an ALLOCATED PARKING SPACE.
This ACCESSIBLE, PET FRIENDLY McCARTHY STONE Retirement Living development was built in August 2021 and is situated closed to local amenities including Hexham General Hospital, shops and the bus station.
Hewson Court was purpose built by McCarthy & Stone for retirement living. The development consists of 43 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. For peace of mind, there is a House Manager on site and a 24-hour emergency call system provided via a personal pendant alarm and with call points in the bathroom and hallway.
There is a ventilation system throughout the development which draws fresh air in from the outside.
The development also includes a Homeowners’ lounge, potting shed, boule court and landscaped gardens with patio area, all perfect for socialising with friends, family and neighbours. There is a mobility scooter charging point and a lift to all floors. In addition, there is the benefit of a guest suite, available for visitors to book wishing to stay (additional charges apply).
The town’s residents adore the weekly farmers’ market in the town centre, which is only a short stroll from the development. Here, you can purchase everything from plants and flowers to decorate your apartment to bread and sweets. The market is held on Tuesdays from 9am to 4pm but, on other days of the week, a small number of market stalls sell goods on the Shambles.
It’s simple for the family to come and visit, too. The A69 provides direct access to Newcastle and Carlisle, while the nearby rail network provides good links to towns and cities throughout the region. Newcastle can be reached in 33 minutes by train, while Sunderland and Durham can both be reached in just under an hour.
If you like to take a stroll and explore away from the development, then Hexham Abbey is the perfect choice. The abbey is over 1,300 years old and regularly welcomes people of all faiths who come to see the artefacts on display, including the Anglo-Saxon tombstone of a Roman soldier and The Phelps Organ.
If you’re a lover of the great outdoors, then you’ll love taking a walk in Sele Park. Here you’ll find a number of woodland walks, an open expanse of grass and a traditional bandstand. The park and gardens also provide fun for all the family when they visit, as there’s a skate park, a children’s play area and public toilets.
The centre of Hexham contains all the amenities you’ll need for a full and active retirement. You’ll also find a number of independent retailers, as well as banks, cafes and restaurants, as well as known high street retailers such as WHSmith, Marks & Spencer and Next.
