property description



This is an immaculately presented apartment located on the lower ground floor, with direct access to a pleasant patio and a open outlook. Conveniently positioned in a quiet hallway on the same floor as the main entrance, reception, communal lounge and restaurant. The apartment is very comfortable with a good-sized living room with French door to patio, quality fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, excellent double bedroom and bathroom with both bath and separate walk-in shower. The apartment benefits from effective, space-saving under-floor heating throughout.

Completed in 2015 by multi award-winning developers McCarthy & Stone, Barnhill Court occupies an excellent position in thriving and historic Chipping Sodbury - an easy and level 10-minute walk to the beautiful high street with its origins dating back to the 12th Century, and just a few minutes’ walk to a Waitrose Supermarket.
This is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development, providing private apartments specifically for those over 70 years of age. The development has been designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent Estate Manager and staff, who oversees the smooth running of the development.
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 which provides a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance.

The development boasts a host of facilities for the enjoyment of home owners: the beautiful communal lounge which is the hub of social activities; a restaurant with a fantastic, varied table-service lunch; mobility scooter store; laundry room; lovely landscaped garden and lifts serving all floors. There is a large well-appointed guest suite for the use of visiting family and friends (a small nightly charge applies for the use of this).
It is easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Barnhill Court. There are many regular activities to enjoy; such activities may include coffee mornings, art groups, fitness classes, film nights, games and quiz nights, 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. Barnhill Court is also on the route of the local community transport service.
