Roswell Court

Roswell Court, Douglas Avenue, Exmouth

property description


Constructed in 2013 by renowned retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone and occupying an envious position with expansive sea views, Roswell Court provides a fantastic lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s. A ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. Homeowners benefit from an 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.

Roswell Court is proud to have won Housing for Older People with Care Award 2019.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Roswell court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; an art group, fitness classes, tai chi, coffee mornings, bridge club, games and quiz nights, themed events and occasional organised trips to the theatre, coast and country. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities or remain as private as they wish.

Roswell Court enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, restaurant with a fantastic and varied daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens backing with views to the coast. A fantastic roof terrace with furniture proves a very popular meeting point from which the panoramic coastal views are enjoyed. There is a path from the development leading down to Exmouth cricket ground and the sandy beach.

A spacious living room enjoys two full height double-glazed windows allowing a flood of natural light and an elevated view over the front of the development.
