12 The Courtyard is a particularly spacious property built of mellow brick under a slate roof with a pleasant outlook over delightful well-tended communal gardens. A third reception room/bedroom provides flexibility for ground floor living with two additional bedrooms on the first floor. There is also a stair-lift which can remain if required. The accommodation is well laid out and includes a separate dining room via double doors from the sitting room and doors to the private gated patio from both the kitchen and dining room. Access to the single garage is via a path leading directly from the rear garden.
Walpole Court was created by The English Courtyard Association in 1983 on the site of the former stables and walled garden of Islington House and is an attractive arrangement of properties sympathetic with their historic surrounding. Each cottage within the development has its own private garage and garden area as well as the use of the immaculate established communal garden which comprises gravel and paved paths and a mixture of mature plants and lawns. A resident Estate Manager is responsible for the day-to-day management of the eighteen houses and eight apartments. An annual community charge of approximately £970.00 per quarter covers the costs for the on-site Manager, communal facilities, monitored alarm service, water charges for the whole site (including private domestic use for each cottage), maintenance of all the grounds, buildings, window cleaning, external lighting, building insurance and a contribution to a reserve fund.
