Blake Court,

Blake Court, Northgate, Bridgwater

property description



Blake Court is a contemporary development by multi award-winning McCarthy Stone offering a fantastic independent 'Retirement Living' opportunity for those aged over 60.

The development has a wonderfully friendly community feel, with a host of activities to enjoy thus making it really easy to meet new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Blake Court. Whilst there is something for everyone, home owners ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish. The excellent communal facilities include a super homeowner lounge, scooter store and lovely landscaped gardens.

The development occupies a very convenient position close to the heart of the market town's centre and is therefore extremely convenient for all major amenities and bus routes. Living at Blake Court provides homeowners and their families the peace-of-mind provided by both the day-to-day support of our House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development and the benefit that 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.

Additionally there is also the excellent guest suite, widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.
