property description



This one bedroomed apartment is situated on the first-floor, convenient to the lift service providing access to all the superb facilities of this sought-after development. A lovely living room overlooks the tree-lined bank of the running Stockwell Stream and beyond to the footpath providing plenty of passing interest. There is an excellent double bedroom, a well fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances and a modern wet room with a level access shower.

Constructed in mid-2014 by renowned retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Ellisfields Court consistently continues to be one our most sought-after developments and it is not difficult to understand why; a quiet backwater location yet within short easy access to the town centre. Beautiful landscaped gardens with pond that back directly onto Taunton Deane cricket ground with Vivary Park next door. 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 excellent staff and Estate Manager.

Residents 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 of £25 per night applies. The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a home owners lounge, superb roof terrace, restaurant with a fantastic and varied daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens.
