Riverside Court, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire

property description



Riverside Court is a sought-after development constructed by McCarthy & Stone in 2017 specifically providing independent retirement living for those over 60 years of age. Peace-of-mind is provided by our excellent House Manager on-site Monday to Friday for 6 hours a day, who oversees the smooth running of the development. There is also a 24-hour emergency call system provided via a personal pendant alarm and with call points in the bathroom.

The development includes a Homeowners' lounge where regular activities take place providing a friendly and thriving social scene and ensuring that there is never a reason to be lonely at Riverside Court but of course without obligation therefore also allowing Home Owners to remain as private as they wish. The excellent facilities extend to the lovely landscaped gardens and a well-appointed guest suite available for family and friends who may wish to visit for which a small nightly charge applies. There is a lift service to all floors.

Riverside Court overlooks the adjoining Gavenny River, Swan Meadow and St Mary's Church, being just a short easy walk to the centre of this bustling Market Town with immediate access to the bus station whilst the town's railway station is within a half a mile walking distance.
