A One Bedroom Second Floor Retirement Apartment with Far Reaching Views
Located on the second floor, this apartment enjoys the afternoon sun and an ever-changing street view across the roof tops to Worlebury Hill and in the southern distance, the Mendip Hill range. There is a good-sized lounge, kitchen with integrated appliances, double bedroom and modern shower room. Well presented decoratively with coving to ceilings.
Fussells Court is in a great location, just a short level walk from the local village High Street with excellent amenities including; a post office, pharmacy, doctors, hairdressers, bakers, bank, butcher supermarket, public houses and cafés. Bus routes to Weston Town Centre and sea front are also very close at hand, as is the route to Bristol and destinations further afield. The property was developed by multi-award winning McCarthy and Stone specifically for those over 60 years of age.
Fussells Court enjoys a host of communal amenities for the benefit of home owners not least of which is the beautiful communal lounge overlooking the well managed development gardens that are adjacent to the open recreation ground. There is a lift serving all floors, an alternative stair lift, a games/TV room, mobility scooter store and laundry room. Further peace-of-mind is found in the service provided by the House Manager who will oversee the smooth running of the development. There is also a 24-hour emergency call system in the apartments and communal areas. A guest suite is available to receive family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night is made.
This is a friendly and welcoming development and Home Owners can participate in an amazing range of activities including; weekly coffee mornings, vintage tea parties, Macmillan Coffee Mornings, RNLI fundraisers, support for MIND, fund raising for Age UK and the local food bank. In addition, we have a weekly hairdresser who has use of the kitchen facilities within the games room and a choice of four visiting podiatrists – advance bookings accepted. The House Manager organises fortnightly fish and chip events which are very popular. A Knit & Natter group meets every Wednesday and everyone is welcome to join in. McCarthy Stone works closely with Morrisons Supermarket, and home owners can place a telephone order for their weekly groceries – with no delivery fee. This is a prompt and reliable service aimed specifically at McCarthy Stone homeowners. The development is in easy distance of the local pharmacies, all who deliver medications to Fussells Court.
