Isabel Court

Isabel Court, Cowick Street, Exeter

property description



Completed in early 2012 Isabel Court is a wonderful development of private apartments built by award-winning developers McCarthy Stone. Specifically designed for ‘Retirement Lifestyle’ for those over 55 years of age the development enjoys a host of facilities for the benefit of home owners including a super communal lounge, a lift service to all floors, mobility scooter store, laundry room and a landscaped garden backing onto the adjacent St. Thomas Park. Further peace-of-mind is found in the service provided by our House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. There is also a 24-hour emergency call system in the apartments and communal areas. A guest suite is available to receive family and friends for which a small charge per night is made.

Car parking is available with a yearly permit at a charge of around £250 per annum, subject to availability.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to exercise both body and mind at Isabel Court: there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including: coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, seasonal and themed events and occasional organised trips. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners dip in and out of activities as they wish.

Isabel Court is located on an active suburban street with a plethora of shops (a Tesco Express is adjacent to the development), restaurants and bars, hairdressers, health centre and so many other useful amenities. Bus routes are located outside the development whilst Exeter St Thomas rail station is at the eastern end of Cowick Street less than a quarter of a mile away.
