Accommodation Summary

First floor retirement apartment for Over-55s
Recently fitted stairlift
2 bedrooms (1 en-suite)
Communal gardens and parking
Residents’ lounge
Guest suite available
Level walking distance to shops and bus stops
No onward chain

Directions

Walking from the Topsham office, turn left. At the old fire station, cross over the road, passing Matthews Hall on your left and then the swimming pool on your right. Armada Court is directly ahead.

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. Armada Court is a small development sitting in the heart of Topsham's charming centre, bordered by the local bowling green. The location has been carefully chosen to ensure that the post office, shops, chemist, doctor and bus and train services are all within a relatively short, level walk away.

Description

Armada Court is a very popular retirement development located at the old school, in the heart of Topsham, a short level walk to shops and amenities and next to the swimming pool and bowling green. This particular apartment is one of the largest at Armada Court, being the top half of what was the headmaster's house. The property has its own front door, with stairs and a stairlift rising to the first floor. The accommodation is well presented and spacious, with a good sized sitting room overlooking the communal gardens and bowling green, with adjoining kitchen. There are two bedrooms (one en-suite) and a separate shower room. Owners need to be aged 55 or over and an on-site manager is available during office hours. Secure parking is provided with electronic access gate and residents have access to the communal gardens. In addition, there is a large luxurious owners' lounge, complete with small library, which may be used at any time and is ideal for meeting for afternoon tea or entertaining guests. An en-suite visitors' bedroom is also available for owners' friends and relatives who may require accommodation in Topsham. The property would be suitable as a main residence or as an investment opportunity as the lease allows for the apartments to be let.
