Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

This spacious ground floor apartment has 2 double bedrooms and a garage. It overlooks landscaped gardens, on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s.  Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the UK's leading companies in retirement housing.

Herringcote has a quiet charm which is perfectly complemented by the quaint character of Dorchester itself, a vibrant community beneath the charming exterior. A collection of two-bedroom cottages and apartments line a lovely courtyard garden, thoughtfully landscaped with trees and herbaceous borders and a traditional brick built dovecote. A walk of just a few minutes takes you into the heart of the village with its wonderful tearooms, shops and amenities.

The famous Norman abbey, at the confluence of the Thames and the Thame, remains at the heart of the village and is the focus for much of the busy calendar of cultural and social events which include the Dorchester on Thames festival, a celebration of music, art and culture; the flower show and the increasingly popular scarecrow trail. The historic high street is largely unchanged, and a popular choice of filming location. There are lovely walks along the Thames Path, and the meadow alongside the Thame has been purchased in perpetuity for the village – an unspoilt idyll.

Cognatum Estates maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a personal alarm system in each property and the estate managers are available to provide support and a helping hand when needed.  The cost of providing these services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 55 years of age.

999 year lease (from 1984). No ground rent.
