On MarketCognatum Property - 01491 821170MA5

A spacious 3 bedroom, first floor, duplex apartment 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.

Behind a high wall, just 250 yards from one of the grandest high streets in England, lies Wye House, a fine 18th-Century Grade II listed property, which provides the perfect setting for a collection of luxury cottages and apartments. The original Georgian building has six elegant apartments with high ceilings and, together with the cottages, built in a Regency style, looks out over a carefully-landscaped, formal public garden.

The vibrant market town of Marlborough is a place of enormous provincial charm, known for its broad high street of timber-framed buildings and Georgian architecture, which testify to the prosperity it has enjoyed over the centuries. The town has an excellent array of shops, with high-street brands, designer boutiques and antique shops in abundance, and many excellent pubs and restaurants, including Rick Stein. There is also a twice-weekly market and a monthly farmers’ market. Close by is the ancient Savernake Forest, one of the largest and oldest forests in England, which offers wonderful walks and glorious scenery. When you want to enjoy a day out in a larger town, you'll find Swindon, Chippenham, Newbury and Bath all less than one hour away.

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 the estate managers are on hand to provide support and help when needed. 

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.

999 year lease (from 1984). No ground rent.
