Description

Located on the first floor of this popular development, this well presented one bedroom retirement apartment is located close to the lift, which serves all floors. The restaurant, homeowners lounge, laundry room and mobility scooter store are all easily accessible on the ground floor.

Introduction: - Situated on the first floor, this is a very well presented one bedroom apartment with a South Westerly facing outlook over the front of this popular development. A lift service provides access to the excellent facilities. A good-sized living room has a focal point fireplace, there is an excellent fitted kitchen with a significant range of integrated appliances, a double bedroom with walk in wardrobe and a wet room with a level access shower and the additional benefit of a bath.

Thomas Court was constructed in late summer of 2013 by multi-award winning McCarthy Stone, and remains one of our most sought-after developments. This is a ‘Retirement Living Plus’ development offering a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a Homeowners' lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch, laundry room, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Homeowners also benefit from one hour of domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets, if required.

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 per night applies.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Thomas Court - there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including a choir, art group, fitness classes, coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, 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 or quite naturally, remain as private as they wish.
