It’s an easy life at Enfield Court
07 May 2013
Since retiring Barbara and Philip Smith now spend eight weeks at a time travelling around Europe in their caravan and exploring new places. And now it is made even easier following their move to Enfield Court.
The couple previously used to worry about what state their home and garden would be in when they returned from their road-trips. Now, they leave whenever they want, safe in the knowledge that everything will remain just where they leave it.
Barbara, 61, who retired last year, said: “We like to go away quite often and enjoy spending our free time travelling. Now it’s great because we can plan to go away whenever we want, with the peace of mind that our home is safe and we won’t be coming back to a garden which looks like a jungle as all these things are taken care of!”
They downsized from their two bedroom semi-detached home in Stockport after deciding they wanted to make the most of their later life together, without the worries and stresses of maintaining their home and garden.
Their new property at Enfield Court benefits from secure video entrance system, a 24-hour emergency call point and a shared landscaped garden which is maintained by McCarthy & Stone on behalf of purchasers.
“We both loved the apartment as soon as we saw it and it just seemed right for us,” Barbara added. “We can now enjoy our retirement even more as we have less maintenance to worry about and we don’t have to plan ahead when we want to go away. We can just lock up and leave – it’s much more of an easy life for us.”
