property description


William Turner Court

William Turner Court was built by McCarthy & Stone purposely for retirement living. The development consists of 55 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s and sits on the banks of the River Wansbeck where there is an abundance of wildlife and changing scenery throughout the seasons.
You can relax, knowing that there's a House Manager on hand during office hours as well as the added benefit of having security features. These include a 24-hour emergency call system should you require assistance and a camera door entry system linked to your TV, so you can see who's calling before letting them in.
There's no need to worry about being weighed down by maintenance costs either as the service charge covers the cost of external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates, security and energy costs of the homeowners lounge with kitchen facilities and other communal areas.
For socialising, the elegantly designed resident's lounge is a great space to meet with friends, family or neighbours and leads onto a terraced seating area at the front of the development, perfect for those warmer days. There is also a mobility scooter storage room and guest suite for friends or family if they wish to extend their stay (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability).

Local Area

Located in the heart of Northumberland, Morpeth is known for its natural beauty, rich history and as a gateway to all that Northumberland has to offer. If you like shopping, Morpeth is a dream destination. The highstreet is located just 150 yards from the development and you’ll find all your favourite, well known brands and labels, as well as a few local shops for unique gifts and treasures. You can’t miss Rutherfords, an old-fashioned department store that has been trading since 1846. Morpeth is more than just clothes shopping though as there’s an abundance of cafes, pubs and restaurants along with a bustling weekly market every Wednesday, as well as the Morpeth Farmers Market on the first Saturday of the month. Pick up fresh produce from local farmers, as well as handmade arts and crafts. There is a Morrison's Super Market and a Lidl just a third of a mile away and Morpeth Riverside Leisure Centre a quarter of a mile away. Bus stops are located outside the development and Morpeth Train Station is located half a mile away.
