Description

Banks Place

Constructed in 2018 by multi award-winning retirement developer McCarthy and Stone, Banks Place occupies a quiet location yet is very conveniently positioned with a just few minutes walk of the excellent facilities of this sought-after village location.

The Ellendune Shopping centre is located just over half a mile from the new development offering a range of convenience shops including Tesco Express. There’s also a local café, butchers and a range of restaurants to choose from. For everyday shopping there’s a Co-Op store located just moments away and a Waitrose supermarket is 2 miles from Banks Place. The village also boasts a doctors, dentists, florist and a local hospital. Wroughton village is conveniently located within easy reach of Swindon city centre, which is easily accessible via a regular bus service for which there is a bus stop located just outside the development. Whilst junctions 15 and 16 of the M4 are around 4 miles away.

Banks Place is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent living opportunity for those over 60 years of age with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and a sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a fantastic homeowners lounge, beautiful landscaped gardens, a scooter store and parking available by annual permit for which there is a charge of around £250 and for which there may be a waiting list. There is also a super 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 lead a busy and fulfilled life at Banks Place; there is always a variety of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, film and quiz nights, carpet bowls and even a 'Fizz-Friday'. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can of course remain as private or involved as they wish.
