Constructed in late 2011 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Wingfield Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent lifestyle opportunity for those aged over 60 with the peace-of-mind provided by support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys superb communal facilities including an excellent homeowner’s lounge, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. In addition, 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 nightly charge applies.
Despite its quiet backwater setting Wingfield Court is in a fabulous location opposite the extensive grounds of the acclaimed Sherborne Independent Boys School and less than a mile from the Town Centre, with is superb range of shops bars and restaurants. Other excellent local amenities, including; the Abbey, Sherborne Castle, Waitrose, Sainsburys and the rail station. are all within approximately 20 minutes level walk.
It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Wingfield Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to enjoy, these vary from coffee mornings or film nights through to organised day trips. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.
It's fair to say that this beautiful apartment is certainly among the better positions on the development. Located on the first floor very conveniently placed for the lift service to all floors the apartment offers very roomy and welcoming two-bedroomed accommodation for which there is always a healthy level of interest.
