Thomas Court

Thomas Court Marlborough Road, Cardiff, Glamorgan, CF23 5EZ

property description



This well maintained and bright apartment is located on the second floor floor corner and, as a result, benefits from a dual aspect living room and does not adjoin any other apartment as there is a stairway between this apartment and its neighbour. The super, southerly facing dual aspect, living room is light and airy and, with the elevated position, provides for an interesting outlook to the ever-changing street scene below. There is a well fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances, an excellent double bedroom, and a modern wet room with a level access shower.

Constructed in late summer 2013 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy Stone, Thomas Court is consistently one of our most sought-after developments. This is a ‘retirement living PLUS’ development providing an independent lifestyle opportunity for those aged over 70 but with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent Estate Manager and staff who oversee the smooth running of the development. Thomas Court enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowners' lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied and daily table-service lunch, laundry room, scooter store and a lovely landscaped, walled garden. Homeowners also benefit from an hour of free 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.

Thomas Court is a very sociable development so it’s really easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life here; there are always plenty of regular activities to enjoy. These may include; coffee mornings, art group, fitness classes, film night, games and quiz nights, seasonal and themed events and occasional organised trips (please refer to the development for specific details). Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can be as sociable or as private as they wish.

Thomas Court enjoys a great position within a level walk of extensive local amenities; with an eclectic mix of independent shops, bars and restaurants, doctor’s surgery, library, park and bus routes all close at hand.
