property description



Wolsey Court is a Retirement Living development built in 2016, consisting of 23 one and two bedroom age-exclusive apartments for the over 60's.
Homeowners will be able to enjoy Retirement Living at its best with their very own apartment as well as a homeowners' lounge and landscaped gardens in which to relax and socialise with their neighbours.
Wolsey Court is situated in the South of Leicester, overlooking St Mary's Triangle, a small parkland area. Nearby is also Victoria Park, a 69 acre parkland. Originally used as a racehorse course, it was opened officially as a park in 1882, and is now used for a range of activities, including tennis, football and cultural activities such as Leicesters Carribean Festival.
The city centre is less than one mile away, however, high quality local shops including Sainsburys, a pharmacy, dentist and post office are all within walking distance. Transport links are easily accessible, with the M1/M69 close by and bus stops near the development
