Constructed in mid-2014 by renowned, award-winning developers McCarthy Stone, Ellisfields Court consistently continues to be one our most sought-after developments and it is not difficult to understand why; a quiet location yet within short easy access to the town centre. Beautiful landscaped gardens with pond that back directly onto Taunton Dean cricket ground with Vivary Park nearby.
This is a ‘Retirement Living PLUS’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our staff and Estate Manager who oversee the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a home owners' lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch, laundry room, scooter store and landscaped gardens.
Ellisfields Court is a vibrant development with plenty of regular activities and ample opportunity to 'get involved', socialise and make new friends. Equally however, there is, of course, no obligation to participate and home owners "dip in and out" as they wish.
Homeowners benefit from one hour of domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets. 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 per night applies.
