property description

Description

Infrequently available, this is a ground floor garden apartment in a quiet and bright spot of this popular development. The apartment has a French door providing access to a small but important terrace and is naturally convenient to the fantastic communal amenities of Cherrett Court. Freshly redecorated and with new carpets throughout, the cheery accommodation provides a very comfortable living room, well-equipped kitchen with built-in appliances, a good-sized double bedroom also overlooking the garden and a sensible wetroom styled bathroom with bath and separate level access shower.

Cherrett Court is a Retirement Living Plus development (formally assisted living) built by renowned award-winning retirement house builders McCarthy & Stone and designed specifically for independent living for those aged over the age of 70. The development enjoys extensive facilities including communal lounge, the very important (as deemed by our Home Owners) restaurant serving affordable top-quality three-course daily lunches, a guest suite for visiting family and friends (for which a small nightly charge is made) and lovely landscaped gardens. There is also the peace-of-mind provided by the Estate Manager and his staff who oversee the smooth running of the development supported by a 24 hour emergency care-line facility in all apartments. The service charge includes one hour of domestic support per week with additional services including care and support available at an additional charge. These can be booked from just 15 minutes 'slots' with flexibility to suit individual needs. Car parking is by an annual permit however the convenience of the location may deem a vehicle unnecessary.

There is a very active social scene at Cherrett Court with regular events and activities and it's very easy to meet and make new friends. Naturally there is no obligation to participate and Home owners can join in or remain as private as they wish.

Cherrett Court is located within a quarter mile walk of the Town centre and conveniently placed for bus routes and communication links.
