South West - Prime location makes Brook Court a popular choice

14 August 2012

McCarthy & Stone’s Brook Court development in Bradley Stoke, which offers apartments specifically designed for later life, has proved so popular with buyers that nearly 40 per cent of the properties have already been purchased off-plan.

Despite only going on sale in June, the Retirement Living development on Savages Wood Road has generated a lot of interest, with 17 retirement apartments already reserved.

Bradley Stoke is perfect for those seeking an independent and active retirement. The town has a large array of shops and services which are located around the Willow Brook Centre, situated less than 200 metres from Brook Court. Bradley Stoke also benefits from excellent transport connections, with buses departing regularly from the Willow Brook Centre and the proximity of several major motorway routes.

The development itself is designed with a security entry system and off-street parking, offering peace of mind for residents. Each apartment is designed with later living in mind, promoting an independent and active lifestyle, whilst also providing security and comfort. Brook Court also features a residents’ lounge as well as extensive landscaped gardens, which contribute to the community spirit of the development. Family and friends are also well catered for with the availability of a guest suite.

Aileen King, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone comments:

“Usually we would expect to sell most of our apartments once the development is complete and ready to move into. However we had an incredible amount of interest as soon as we started work on Brook Court, particularly from local people who wanted to stay in the area but were looking for a more manageable property. With apartments selling quickly we’d urge interested purchasers to get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

Brook Court is a development exclusive to the over 60s and the apartments start at £165,950. Every property is light and spacious, with added features designed to help promote independence in later life.  All apartments will contain a walk in wardrobe in the main bedroom and two bedroom apartments will contain an en suite. Some apartments will feature a balcony or French balcony.
