Chinnerys Court has been designed to support modern independent retirement living with the majority of apartments featuring walk in wardrobes, Sky+ connection point in living rooms, underfloor heating, and camera entry system for use with a standard TV. The development has a dedicated House Manager on site during their working hours to take care of running the development. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates and security systems. All energy costs of the homeowners lounge and other communal areas are also covered in the service charge. For your peace of mind the development has CCTV door entry and 24-hour emergency call systems, should you require assistance. The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability) which has an en-suite shower room, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV. It is a condition of purchase that residents must meet the age requirement of 60 years of age or over.
The development has a wonderful friendly community feel, reflected by the social calendar which homeowners can partake in as much or as little as they wish. There are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; fitness classes, coffee mornings, games/quiz nights, 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.
