Thomas Court, Marlborough Road, Cardiff, Glamorgan, CF23 5EZ

property description



Constructed in late summer 2013 by multi award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Thomas Court is consistently one of our most sought-after developments. This is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager who will oversee the smooth running of the development.

The property enjoys excellent facilities including a communal lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied, daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Homeowners also 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 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.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Thomas Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; a choir, art group, fitness classes, coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, themed events and occasional organised trips. 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.

The development is in an excellent position within a level walk of extensive amenities; shops, bars and restaurants, Doctors, Library, Roath Park and bus routes are all close at hand.
