Clarkson Court was built by McCarthy & Stone purpose built for retirement living. The development consists of 70 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. The recently refurbished homeowners’ lounge is a great space for social events and, for added convenience, there is a guest suite which visitors can book into for a small fee (usually around £30). The dedicated House Manager is 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, security and the energy costs of the laundry room, homeowners lounge and other communal areas.
Clarkson Court is situated less than half a mile away from The Thoroughfare, which boasts a ‘real shopping ‘experience with over 100 specialist independent shops ranging from boutiques and antique shops to cafes and restaurants. These are complemented by larger national stores. Residents of Clarkson Court can take advantage of good transport links. There are many bus services that run to, from and through Woodbridge, serving many of the surrounding towns and villages and there are frequent buses to Ipswich. Woodbridge is ideally placed to explore the surrounding areas with easy access to the A12 and with it’s own railway station which is linked to the main national railway system. The East Suffolk line runs from Ipswich to Lowestoft and offers pleasant train journeys through the coastal and heathland of Suffolk. London is less than 2 hours away by train with direct trains to and from London Liverpool Street. With all this and more Clarkson Court is the perfect place for a happy and enjoyable retirement.
