Situated just three miles from the ancient city of Exeter, our Russell Way development allows you to own your own apartment while receiving the care and support you need.

An attractive building with 61 apartments, this large development has both one- and two-beds for sale. The top-level apartments boast far-reaching views, and the secluded landscaped gardens are a peaceful place for quiet contemplation. Outside seating areas and a communal lounge offer a place to natter with your fellow homeowners, whatever the weather. And there?s even a wellness suite with a beauty counter!

All apartments are designed not only beautifully but also practical. All apartments have balconies, with ground floor apartments boasting a patio space or floor-to-ceiling windows. And all feature waist-height ovens and switches so you don?t need to bend or lift. We?re there to make your life easier. There?s even a great-value onsite restaurant for when you don?t fancy cooking.

As a Retirement Living Plus development, individually tailored and flexible care packages mean you will receive and pay only for the support you need. Qualified professionals are available round-the-clock, and the Estates Manager will ensure all runs smoothly. Along with the dedicated team of staff, there?s a 24/7 call system providing emergency response, and we guarantee accessibility throughout the development, with lifts to all floors.

The bus stop is located directly opposite the development in the adjacent Tesco carpark and can be accessible via the private gate from the Home Owners? garden. Locally, there?s a new residential area nearby, as well as a conveniently located retail park with supermarket housing a pharmacy.

Community - McCarthy & Stone

I’ve always been a sociable person, so it’s lovely that there are always other people around and lots of activities to get involved in, like the coffee mornings, film nights, and of course, the art classes. There is always something going on at the development.

THE LOCAL AREA

Living in Exeter

Nowhere, is the ancient aspect of Exeter more obvious than when taking a stroll along its City Walls. Dating to the Roman era, over two-thirds of the walls are still standing today. And Exeter Cathedral is one of the oldest in England (founded by Edward the Confessor). Various tours allow you to explore this magnificent and historic building and experience breath-taking views over the city.From atop the city to below it, take a tour around Exeter?s intriguing and twisting Underground Passages. Originally built for the pipes that carried clean drinking water into medieval Exeter, these are the only passages of their kind in Britain open to the public.

The recently refurbished and award-winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery is a great day out for all ages. The museum tells the story of the area from the prehistoric to the present, but also features internationally renowned collections of world cultures and natural history. And with a regularly changing programme, you can visit again and again.

If you want a more leisurely pace to your day, take a stroll along Exeter Quayside, taking in antique stores, boutiques and plenty of great pubs and restaurants.

Outside the city centre, Furdson House offers tours of the manor and its 750-year history. And from the beautiful gardens and coach house tea room you can admire stunning views of the local countryside.For a day at the seaside, head to Exmouth Beach, famous for its two-mile stretch of golden sands and rock pools. Take a lazy stroll or brisk walk along the surrounding cliffs for dramatic views, and the promenade offers all you?d expect from a day at the seaside, from swing boats to crazy golf.

And, for a touch of glamour, how about a champagne hot air balloon flight? Glide elegantly across the South West, with views over some of the most spectacular areas of the UK with Aerosaurus Balloons.
