A two bedroom end terrace cottage with patio garden and garage directly behind. The property is located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the UK's leading companies in retirement housing.
Right next to Reading Golf Course, Lyefield Court is a quiet courtyard of cottages and apartments set in the former hamlet of Emmer Green, secluded from the main road and close to a good, small shopping centre. The houses all have carefully-detailed brick elevations with a variety of dormer windows, while the apartments have spectacular octagonal entrance halls artistically lit by stylish lanterns. The grounds are mainly laid to lawn and include a pond with a fountain and a small area of woodland.
Reading is Berkshire’s county town, with a major university and many modern shopping and sporting facilities. These include The Oracle, Hexagon Theatre, several cinemas, a number of golf courses and health clubs, the John Nike Centre and many designer shops, wine bars and restaurants. The area is renown for beautiful National Trust spots, with the Tudor country house and gardens of Grey's Court, the former home of the Astor family overlooking the Thames at Cliveden, the 18th-Century house at Basildon and Saville Gardens all no more than 20 miles away. The estate is also well-placed for travel with Reading station, the M4 motorway and Heathrow airport all within easy reach.
Cognatum Estates maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a personal alarm system in each property and resident estate managers are on hand to provide support and help when needed, making this an ideal 'Lock Up & Leave' property.
There is a laundry facility on site and a guest suite provides comfortable accommodation for family and friends.
The cost of providing these services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 55 years of age.
150 year lease (from 1983). No ground rent.
