property description



Waterford Place was very recently constructed by multi award-winning retirement living specialist McCarthy and Stone and is a sought-after 'Retirement Living' development providing independent living for those aged 60 years and over. It occupies a fantastic position just 200 metres from the centre of town. A variety of local supermarkets can be found nearby and the Town Centre also boasts access to a local Hospital and plenty of Doctors surgeries, Banks, retail stores and independent shops. There are also regular traditional town markets. Places of interest in the local area are varied, with John Coles Park, the museum and Heritage Centre and Chippenham folk festival just a few examples. For those interested in wider travel, transport links are strong with regular bus services connecting residents to towns including Bath, Calne, Devizes, Trowbridge and Swindon. Rail links are also good and Chippenham railway station features along the main line to London Paddington.

Waterford Place offers the level of freedom needed to maintain your independence for longer in your own home, living retirement to the full. It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Waterford Place; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; coffee mornings, fitness classes, games and quiz nights, fish and chip supper evenings, themed events.
