Paxton Court,

Paxton Court, White Lion Street, Tenby

property description



This Immaculate and tastefully presented top floor, easterly facing, apartment showcases the very best in retirement living. This is a beautiful example which is situated in the desirable and much sought-after Paxton Court and enjoys superb sea views from all windows and a balcony that is accessible from the living room and both bedrooms. The property features an excellent fitted kitchen with a comprehensive range of appliances which has been upgraded by the current owners, a useful utility room, two double bedrooms, a large wet-room styled ensuite to the main bedroom and a further shower/wc for guests.

Paxton Court was completed in 2014 by multi award-winning developers McCarthy & Stone and is an architecturally striking development carefully designed to reflect a row of period Town Houses. The development occupies a commanding 'front-line' position within a quarter mile distance of the town centre amenities and the seafront of this famous coastal location. Tenby's hilltop position led to its early settlement as a Welsh stronghold, which was replaced in medieval times by a Norman Castle and walled town. Part of the town walls survive to this day and are an attractive feature at the entrance to the old town. From the early 19th century, Tenby became a fashionable holiday destination and its attractions to the holidaymaker are just as obvious today, with the fantastic beaches stretching to the north, the west, and the south of the town. Stroll the narrow cobbled streets of Tenby itself or just sit in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by.

Paxton Court is designed to provide an independent living opportunity specifically for those over 55 years of age. The development enjoys a host of facilities for the benefit of home owners not least of which is the beautiful communal lounge leading to the lovely decked courtyard garden. In addition, there are two lifts servicing all floors, mobility scooter store, laundry room and underground secure parking. Further peace-of-mind is found in the service provided by our House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. In addition, there is also a 24-hour emergency call system in the apartments and communal areas. A guest suite is available to receive family and friends for which a small charge per night is made.

Parking in central Tenby is always an issue; Paxton Court is fortunate to have a basement level enclosed car park and parking is available by an annual permit (see 'general' note below for more details).

It’s so easy to make friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Paxton Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, fish and chip suppers, exercise classes seasonal and themed events and even the occasional organised trips. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners ‘dip in and out’ of activities or alternatively remain as private as they wish.
