property description


Constructed in mid-2014 by renowned retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Ellisfield Court consistently continues to be one our most sought-after developments and it is not difficult to understand why; a quiet backwater location yet within short easy access to the town centre. Beautiful landscaped gardens with pond that back directly onto Taunton Dean cricket ground with Vivary park next door. 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.

This apartment at Ellisfield Court has to occupy one of the prime spots within the development; located in private corner position with little external footfall enjoying a dual-aspect outlook with a field to the side and direct access to the beautiful landscaped gardens to the rear. It has very roomy two bedroomed accommodation including a lovely living room opening onto a pleasant patio area, a well fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances, cloakroom and a modern wet room with a level access shower.

Homeowners 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. There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.
