Property description

Tenure: Leasehold


Introduction: - A stunning apartment at this very popular development. Positioned on the upper ground floor yet convenient to the lift service providing access to the superb development facilities, this one bed apartment was a former show-apartment. Accommodation offers a spacious living room with a pleasant outlook, very well fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and a modern wet room with an excellent level access shower.

Constructed in 2013 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, Stover Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 55’s and designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager. The development, partly converted from the old hospital, is ideally located within a very short walk of a Sainsbury’s store, excellent doctors surgery, pharmacy and the amenities of the town centre. The development enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowners' lounge, laundry, scooter store, landscaped gardens with an attractive courtyard. 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. The property benefits from economical underfloor heating hence freeing up valuable wall space and a sophisticated Vent Axia system. Private car parking is available with a yearly permit at an annual charge of around £250 per annum for which there may be a waiting list.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Stover Court; there are always plenty of activities to choose from bringing neighbours and friends together on a regular basis. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can remain as private as they might wish.
