Luxury village living on offer for retirees near Bath

Posted 22 October 2015 by Stephen Maunder

Located in the pretty and historic village of Norton Saint Philip, just 8 miles south of Bath, Church View is a collection of 14 individually-designed character homes created exclusively for the over 55s.

By award-winning Lochailort Investments, the quality homes here include eight luxury two- and three-bedroom houses and six exclusive one- and two-bedroom apartments.

A great deal of care and attention has gone into crafting this interesting mix of home-styles, with a charming mews feel to the scheme. Church View has seen a great deal of interest with 30% of the homes already reserved or sold.

Everything on your doorstep

A desirable place to live, Church View has first-class road links to Bath and is surrounded by rural beauty. Close by there is also a shop, two pubs, a school and a church, all of which combine to offer a very high quality of life for purchasers.

Residents also have access to extensive services on site with the inclusion of an Estate Manager. The Manager can take delivery of items, arrange for the external maintenance and cleaning of windows and take care of properties while residents are away.

A regular bus service also runs into Bath every hour from the centre of the village. Every home has also been allocated an individual and nearby parking space.

Quality in every detail

The interiors have meticulous attention to detail with a high quality specification. Materials have been sourced from the best suppliers. For example the kitchens in a traditional style, with granite or Silestone worktops, are in keeping with the traditional character of the homes.

Each kitchen has been carefully designed for the particular property, but also benefits from the latest modern technology. Other high quality specifications include designer white sanitaryware to the bathrooms, oak flooring to halls, kitchen and cloakrooms, wet under-floor heating to the majority of rooms, double-glazed timber windows and deep painted skirtings and architraves.

Energy efficiency has also been prioritised with homes featuring concrete floors for its insulative properties. The majority of the properties also benefit from Jetmaster freestanding multi-fuel stoves and full working chimneys, creating a focal point in living rooms, while contributing to the traditional character of the houses.

Complete peace of mind

While the Estate Manager can keep a watchful eye over the homes, each property is also fitted with a state-of-the-art Tunstall Telecare system, which enables residents to subscribe to a 24 hour, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, UK based, call centre support service.

The homes are also fitted with zoned alarm systems and mains power smoke detectors. The apartments have a secure key fob entry system, to prevent key duplication, for ease of use for residents and a video entry system. A lift is provided to all floors of the apartment building.

A unique setting

Church View is so named from its rural outlook towards Church Mead cricket green and park as well as the village church, with vistas over trees and fields.

The landscaping of the whole development is a high standard throughout, incorporating many semi- mature trees, bushes and hardy plants. Each of the houses at Church View also benefits from individually landscaped private gardens with pretty patios and flowerbeds. There is also a communal garden area for the benefit of the apartments bordered by a path and with extensive mature planting.
