A STUNNING TWO BEDROOM HOUSE ENJOYING A QUIET LOCATION ON THE EDGE OF THIS ATTRACTIVE AND POPULAR OVER 55s SCHEME
DESCRIPTION: This is a charming house part of a well known popular over 55s scheme which occupies Bemerton Farm. This originally belonged to the Wilton estate and was built for the Dowager Countess of Pembroke around 1860. English Courtyard Association bought the property and converted it into houses and flats in 2000 and they set the standard for quality retirement homes aimed for the active independent buyer who still may need assistance.
The house is built of stone elevations under a tiled roof and has the benefit of electric central heating. The most attractive features of the property are the delightful drawing room looking out over the communal gardens as well as the master bedroom with its own en-suite shower room. There is also a charming tower room/study with access from the second bedroom with magnificent views over the countryside around. Outside there is a garage with this property as well as two parking spaces and the building is set in charming well maintained gardens. There is a lovely private area of garden with summerhouse on the other side of Lower Road leading down to the River Nadder.
This property has the benefit of an emergency alarm system linked to the estate manager or the back up control centre. The site is managed by Cognatum Estates.
