Anstie Court was constructed in 2014 by multi award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone. It is a ‘retirement living’ development providing a quality of life opportunity for those over 60 years of age and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the support of our excellent House Manager. Additionally, all apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. There is also the excellent Guest Suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.
Anstie Court is a vibrant development with an active community ensuring there are always opportunities to meet and socialise be it at a simple coffee morning or a quiz night, extending to themed events and celebrations. Of course whilst participation is always welcome it is certainly not obligatory and homeowners can join in or remain as private as they might wish.
The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a home owners lounge, area with canal views and the library. There is immediate access from Anstie Court to the towpath of the Kennet and Avon Canal which runs alonside the development gardens to the rear. The development facilities also include a laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. The bustling and historic Town Centre is just a few minutes easy walk away.
A solid Oak-veneered entrance door with spy-hole opens into the entrance hallway. Here you will find the security intercom system that provides both a visual (via the home-owners TV) and verbal link to the main development entrance door. Emergency pull cord, large store cupboard with light and shelving housing the Gledhill hot water boiler and the concealed ‘Vent Axia’ heat exchange unit. A feature glazed pannelled door lead into the living room.
This bright and spacious room benefits from a patio door over looking the gardens. The aspect provides an interesting insight to the activity of the development. Glazed panelled door leads to the kitchen.
