Property Description

Ground floor flat in exclusive McCarthy and Stone development designed with the over 70's in mind.


Super one bedroom ground floor apartment in the modern Wardington Court development with views toward Kingsthorpe village and beyond and having its own small patio area. 

Wardington Court comprises 56 Assisted Living retirement apartments located adjacent to parkland and close to local shops and supermarkets with bus stops in close proximity providing easy access to Northampton town centre and beyond. Well tended communal gardens provide a peaceful community feel to the development.

In addition there is a spacious homeowners lounge and a table service restaurant available 365 days a year. There is a hotel style guest suite for visiting family and friends (usually for a fee of £25 per night subject to availability) with en-suite shower room, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV. Wardington Court offers regular social gatherings for residents to include coffee mornings, afternoon teas and movie nights. 

Wardington Court is part of the McCarthy and Stone Retirement Living Plus range (formerly Assisted Living) to provide the homeowner with extra care. An Estate Manager manages the day to day running of the development and attends to any enquiries. One hours domestic assistance is included within the service charge although further hours can be arranged by appointment. There are a range of personal care packages provided by the on-site CQC registered care team. The development has 24 hour on site staffing, secure camera entry systems and 24 hour emergency call system provided by a personal pendant with static call points in the bathroom and main bedroom.
