Clarkson Court was built by McCarthy & Stone purpose built for retirement living. The development consists of 70 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. The recently refurbished homeowners' lounge is a great space for social events and, for added convenience, there is a guest suite which visitors can book into for a small fee (usually around £30). The dedicated House Manager is on site during the day to take care of things and make you feel at home. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates, security and the energy costs of the laundry room, homeowners lounge and other communal areas. It is a condition of purchase that residents must meet the age requirement of 60 years of age or over.
