Harbour Lights,

Harbour Lights, North Quay, Weymouth

property description



Constructed in late 2015 by multi-award-winning retirement developer McCarthy Stone, Harbour Lights Court is an inspired development which was sympathetically designed to blend perfectly into the harbourside architecture of North Quay .

The working harbour and its moorings provide constant activity and interest and is also the location for many exciting events throughout the year. Harbour Lights Court is conveniently located within around half a mile easy walk of the main retail centre and just a little further to the Esplanade and Weymouth's famous three mile long sandy beach. Nearer to the development, an Asda superstore is less than 5 minutes walking distance and there are a number of pubs and restaurants close by.

This is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent living opportunity for those over 60 years of age with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our House Manager who overseas 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. 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 Harbour Lights Court; there are always a variety of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, film nights and occasional themed events. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.

Harbour Lights enjoys excellent communal facilities including a fantastic homeowners lounge, beautiful landscaped gardens that prove a popular place for home owners to gather in the warmer weather to while-away the hours, and socialise. In addition, there is a laundry room, scooter store and onsite parking available by annual permit for which there is a charge of around £250 and for which there may be a waiting list.
