Ellisfields Court

Ellisfields Court, Taunton, TA1 3SS

property description



Constructed in 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 Vivary Park close by.

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 who will oversee the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowners' 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 homeowners can remain as private as they wish.

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.
