Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

A two-bedroom ground floor apartment with 2 patio gardens. 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.

Hayes End Manor is almost picture-perfect, with a granary and the manor house at the entrance, dating from the end of the 14th Century. Many historic features have survived and it is now an intimate setting for some delightful cottages. The enormous flax barn is now converted into apartments and maisonettes and there are further cottages, all built in honey-coloured Ham stone, around the former farmyard with views east over the extensive grounds and across the meadow. There are also allotments and a greenhouse for keen gardeners.

Hayes End Manor is only a few minutes away from the centre of the small town of South Petherton, which is known for the beauty of its buildings made from the warm, honey-coloured stone quarried from nearby Ham Hill. It has a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, which lie in the shadow of the glorious octagonal tower of the church of St. Peter and St. Paul. There is plenty to do locally, with societies catering for a wide variety of cultural, social, walking and sporting interests. Montacute House, a magnificent Elizabethan property that contains an outpost of the National Portrait Gallery, and the former Cistercian monastery of Forde Abbey, are both within 12 miles of 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 the estate managers are available to provide support and a helping hand when needed.  A guest suite is available for visitors and residents have access to a laundry facility. 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 1989). No ground rent.
