The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a Homeowners' lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied and subsidised daily table-service lunch, laundry room, mobility scooter store and landscaped gardens.
Homeowners also benefit from one hour of domestic assistance each week and there are also extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets.
