property description



San Lorenzo Court was constructed by multi-award winning McCarthy and Stone in late 2013 providing providing independent retirement living specifically for the over 60's. The development consists of 37 one and two-bedroom apartments with all home owners enjoying the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. 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. San Lorenzo Court benefits from superb communal facilities including a lovely Homeowners' lounge, laundry room, scooter room and landscaped gardens.
There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small nightly charge applies.

This is a friendly and socially active community and It’s easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at San Lorenzo Court; there are always plenty of regular activities varying from coffee mornings to organised coach trips. Whilst there is something for everyone, home owners ‘dip in or out’ of activities, as they wish.

The development is located within just a very short walk to a Tesco store with bus routes, bars and restaurants on the adjacent St Ives Road. The beautiful and popular coastal town of St Ives is just under 2 miles away.

This lovely apartment is located on the second floor and has easy access to the lift which serves all floors. There is a good-sized living room with French door to a spacious balcony, an excellent fitted kitchen with a comprehensive range of integrated appliances, good-sized double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and shower room with level-access double shower.

San Lorenzo Court is positioned overlooking the mile-long Carbis Bay, and just one mile from the Town centre, a Tesco store is very conveniently located adjacent to the development.
