Full description

This attractive, two double bedroom, end-of-terrace cottage 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.

Originally built as a hunting lodge for the Duke of Buccleuch in 1840, the hall and stable blocks of Dunchurch Hall have now been converted into apartments and cottages, with other cottages built on either side as wings to the main house. The estate has more than 10 acres of landscaped grounds, including an old cricket pavilion that is used for social and other occasions, and beyond the grounds there is access to a private nature conservation area with a large fishpond. 

The estate is just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Dunchurch, known for its half-timbered houses and thatched roofs, and it offers a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants in addition to services such as a chemist, post office, doctor’s surgery, dentist and library. Rugby is just three miles away for major shopping and a mainline station. Local days out could include a visit to Coombe Country Park with its 500 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland, a look around the aircraft and aero engines on display at Midland Air Museum, or a walk in amongst the 14th-Century ruins at Caludon Castle Park, all of which are less than 12 miles from the estate.

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 resident estate managers are on hand to provide support and help when needed, making this an ideal 'Lock Up & Leave' property.  

There is a laundry facility on site and a guest suite provides comfortable accommodation for family and friends.  A minibus is available to take residents on regular shopping and other trips and allotments are available for residents' use.  

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.

150 year lease (from 1997). No ground rent.
