About this property

An immaculate 1 bedroom first floor apartment in this desirable central position.

Bishops Court, built in 2006, is a small housing development in the centre of the village designed for active independent living for people aged 55 and over. There is additional support and assistance if needed for residents with less independence, which is provided by a team of on-site professional staff.

The community lounge hosts social gatherings for residents and some local community events. A guest suite can be hired for anyone expecting visitors in need of overnight accommodation.

First floor apartments can be accessed either by stairs or by lift, and No. 26 is in a section of the development enjoying a night time security gate. There are non-slip walkways to all floors. A regular doctor's surgery is also held within the building.

The communal gardens are landscaped and provide sitting areas for those wanting to enjoy a peaceful location with wonderful river views. The village shops and facilities are just outside the entrance to Bishops Court.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
