Stover Court

East Street, Newton Abbot

property description



With a rarely available layout, this spacious, interesting and well presented two bedroom apartment is on the first floor yet extremely conveniently situated for the lift service. The accommodation offers a generous living room, very well fitted kitchen with integrated appliances including a slimline dishwasher, and a modern ensuite wet room with an excellent level access shower. There is the additional bonus of a further shower room/wc off the hallway which is ideal for visitors / guests.

Constructed in 2013 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Stover Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 55’s and designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager. The development, partly converted from the old hospital, is ideally located within a very short walk of a Sainsbury’s store, excellent doctors surgery, pharmacy and the amenities of the town centre. The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowners' lounge, laundry, scooter store, landscaped gardens with an attractive courtyard. 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. The property benefits from economical underfloor heating hence freeing up valuable wall space and a sophisticated Vent Axia system. Private car parking is available with a yearly permit at an annual charge of around £250 per annum.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Stover Court; there are always plenty of activities to choose from bringing neighbours and friends together on a regular basis. Whilst there is something for everyone, homeowners dip in and out of activities as they wish.


An L shaped hallway is entered via a solid oak-veneered entrance door with spy-hole and includes a security intercom system that provides a verbal link to the main development entrance door. An emergency panel / pull cord offers access to the 24 hour care line. A generous and useful, square shaped, walk-in store/airing cupboard houses the Gledhill boiler supplying domestic hot water.
