Central location, close to shops and amenities
18’ dual aspect sitting & dining room
Use of communal gardens and parking
Residents' lounge and guest accommodation available
No onward chain

Directions

From the Topsham office, turn left and continue along Fore Street, Grove House is on the right hand side, before the mini-roundabout. Enter through the pillared entrance (rather than going into the main house). The property is found after a short distance, along on the left hand side.

Situation

Perched on the banks of the River Exe Estuary, it is hard to envisage a location better suited to retirement living than that of the historic port of Topsham. With a welcoming atmosphere, an active community and Exeter just 3 miles away, its nationwide renown is justly deserved. Grove House is a small development of apartments and cottages in the heart of Topsham's charming centre and the location has been carefully chosen to ensure that shops, a chemist, doctor’s surgery and community services are all just a short, level walk away. Topsham’s popular open-air swimming pool, tennis courts, rugby club, bowls club and sailing club are also nearby. The Estuary League of Friends Community Hub is located on the corner of Orchard Way and Nelson Close with facilities including a Post Office, café, library, laundry, treatment rooms and various social clubs. There is a frequent bus service and a very useful train link to Exeter City centre which is just 4 miles away and Exmouth which is around 6.5 miles away. Exeter Golf & Country Club is less than two miles distant.
