property description


A stunning two bed ground floor garden apartment (being the ex show apartment) presented in immaculate order throughout with a French door opening to a small patio enjoying a really pleasant and sunny south-westerly aspect overlooking the mature development gardens. Tastefully decorated accommodation offers a good-sized Living Room with a pleasant outlook, excellent fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, two double bedrooms and both modern bathroom and separate shower room. The apartment is located within easy level access of the excellent communal facilities of the development yet is quietly tucked-away at the end of the hallway with no adjoining neighbours on this floor.

Completed in 2012 by multi award-winning developers McCarthy Stone Holmcroft Court occupies an excellent position less than a 10-minute level walk to the High Street of this thriving Somerset town. Providing private apartments specifically for those over 60 years of age the development enjoys a host of facilities for the benefit of home owners not least of which is the beautiful communal lounge which is the hub of social activities. In addition, there is a lift serving all floors, mobility scooter store, laundry room and a landscaped garden with mature trees. Further peace-of-mind is found in the service provided by our House Manager who will oversee the smooth running of the development. There is also a 24-hour emergency call system in the apartments and communal areas. A guest suite is available to receive family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night is made.

The quality of life is so important to living at Holmcroft Court and it’s easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life here; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, a fitness class, 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.
