property description


Immaculately presented with really useful age-specific additions this is a very spacious apartment at Somers Brook Court. A bright and cheerful apartment courtesy of the dual aspect glazing with the popular benefit of a private balcony. Located on the first floor and just a short walk from the lift service to all floors. A good-sized living room opens onto the balcony, there is a well fitted kitchen with extensive range of appliances and two excellent double bedrooms. A modern wet room with a level access shower and easy access bath complete the picture for this exceptional apartment.

Constructed in early 2014 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Somers Brook Court is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development providing wonderful lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent Estate Manager and Staff who oversee the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Homeowners also benefit from an hour of domestic assistance each week and extra care packages are 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.

Somers Brook Court is an incredibly friendly development with regular social activities that keep Home Owners both active and entertained. However Home Owners can participate or remain as private as they wish in the development specifically designed for independent living. Somers Brook Court is within 850 metres of the High Street of this, the historic capital Town of the Island, and as such is very conveniently placed for day to day amenities. In addition, a Sainsbury’s supermarket is just a few minutes walking distance.
