Somers Brook Court, Foxes Road, Newport

property description



Constructed in early 2014 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Somers Brook Court is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’S and designed for independent living 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. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Homeowners also benefit from an 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.
It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Somers Brook Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; exercise classes, coffee mornings, film nights, monthly bingo, beetle drive and cheese and wine evenings, a memory group, and numerous guest speakers. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish. Somers Brook Court is within 850 metres of the High Street of this, the historic capital Town of the Island, and as such is very conveniently placed for day to day amenities.
