property description



This beautifully presented apartment at Stover Court occupies a favourable corner position on the second floor ensuring a high level of privacy yet convenient to the lift service providing access to the superb development facilities. This is a comfortable dual-aspect one bedroom property having a spacious living room with French doors to a Juliette balcony, a very well fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances and a modern wet room with a level access shower.

The property benefits from economical underfloor heating hence freeing up valuable wall space and a sophisticated Vent Axia system. Private car parking is available with a yearly permit at an annual charge of around £250 per annum for which there may be a waiting list.

Constructed in 2013 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Stover Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 55’s and designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager.
