property description


William Court

This fine apartment enjoys an excellent position within the development tucked privately away in a quiet corner yet with easy access to both the lift service and stairs to all floors. The apartment looks out across the popular Overnhill Road with its lovely mix of property and mature tree-lined aspect and provides a 'window to the world' with the varied activity of life outside William Court. The accommodation is spacious and well-presented with a pleasant living room, great kitchen with extensive range of integrated appliances, double bedroom and wet room facilities. It would be of little surprise if this apartment attracts very early buying interest.

Constructed in 2011 by award-winning retirement home developer McCarthy and Stone, William Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing a quality-of-life opportunity for the over 60’s and designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. William Court is in a much-favoured residential location within close proximity to both Downend and Staple Hill High Streets. The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, laundry, scooter store and beautiful landscaped gardens. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing a 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 exercise both body and mind at William Court; This is a very sociable development and there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; fitness classes, coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, table tennis, snooker, seasonal and themed events. 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.
