property description


Constructed in late 2014 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Singer Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 60’S and designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development.

The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, laundry, scooter store, communal landscaped gardens and a stunning roof terrace with patio furniture and providing a breath-taking vista of the coastline of the English Riviera – make sure you take a look! 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.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Singer Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; exercise classes, coffee mornings, film nights, bingo, cheese and wine evenings, and occasional interesting guest speakers. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish. Singer Court is located in the desirable Preston district and is tucked out of the way yet within a ‘stones-throw’ of excellent local amenities and with a regular bus service into Paignton Town centre.
