property description


Wolsey Court

Wolsey Court is a Retirement Living development built in 2016, consisting of 23 one and two bedroom age-exclusive apartments for the over 60's.
Homeowners will be able to enjoy Retirement Living at its best with their very own apartment as well as a homeowners' lounge and landscaped gardens in which to relax and socialise with their neighbours.
The dedicated House Manager is on site during working hours to take care of things and make you feel at home. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates and security systems. All energy costs of the homeowners lounge and other communal areas are also covered in the service charge. For your peace of mind the development has camera door entry and 24-hour emergency call systems, should you require assistance. The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability).
