This is a beautifully presented two bedroom apartment located on the second floor of this desirable Ellisfields Court development and by virtue of the design virtually 'semi-detached' from other apartments. One floor up is access to a a super communal terrace with a southerly aspect overlooking the development gardens. The apartment offers welcoming accommodation with a 'homely' ambiance benefiting from an excellent and very spacious Sitting Room with an outlook toward the tree-lined bank of Stockwell Stream and with the passing interest of the footpath activity on the opposite side. The Principle bedroom is especially large, there is an excellent second bedroom, a bright, well fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances, useful cloakroom and a modern wet room with a level access shower.
Constructed in mid-2014 by renowned, award-winning developers McCarthy and Stone, Ellisfields Court consistently continues to be one our most sought-after developments and it is not difficult to understand why; a quiet backwater location yet within short easy access to the town centre. Beautiful landscaped gardens with pond that back directly onto Taunton Dean cricket ground with Vivary park next door. This is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and estate manager who will oversee the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a home owners lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. There is direct access from the development leading to Vivary park serving as a short cut to town.
Ellisfields court is a vibrant development with plenty of regular activities and ample opportunity to 'get involved' , socialise and make new friends. Equally however, there is, of course, no obligation to participate and Home owners can remain as private as they wish.
Homeowners benefit from one hour of domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages 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.
