This large two bedroom apartment at Ellisfields Court has to occupy one of the most desirable positions within the development; located in private corner position on the second floor, the apartment is quietly tucked away with little passing footfall yet conveniently positioned to the lift service to all other floors. With an excellent 'wrap-around' balcony overlooking open ground and a bright dual-aspect Sitting Room the apartment has much to offer. The apartment, which has recently undergone a make-over is therefore well-presented and in addition to the Sitting Room offers very spacious accommodation with a well fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances, cloakroom, super principle bedroom with good-sized recessed area, second double bedroom and a modern wet room with a level access shower. The walk-out balcony provides that all-important outdoor space.
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 owner’s 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.
