Full description

A three bedroom end-of-terrace cottage overlooking landscaped gardens and woodlands, with conservatory, patio garden and garage. The property is located 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 is smart, stylish and characterful, somewhat like Dorchester itself. A traditional brick dovecote marks the entrance to the estate, which is built around a pretty courtyard garden dotted with trees and marked with herbaceous borders. The cottages have conservatories and two bedrooms, like the apartments, and all have a garage.  A short walk takes you to the village shops.

Set at the confluence of the Thames and the Thame, Dorchester is famous for its Abbey, built by the Normans on the site of a Saxon cathedral, which is the focus for many cultural events. The high street remains virtually unspoilt and, due to its historic charm, has been the location for several films and TV series such as Poirot and Midsomer Murders. The village has a small supermarket, delightful tea rooms and three inns, each with its own distinct character. The Thames flows nearby and there are lovely walks along the Thames Path, and the National Trust properties of Nuffield Place and the Priory Cottages are within easy distance.

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.
