The property offers deceptively spacious accommodation which is offered with no forward chain. The Lounge is a spacious room which has ample space for living and dining room furniture. There is a window overlooking the side of the development and a door leading to the kitchen. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of eye and base level units with working surfaces over and tiled splashbacks. There is a built in waist height oven, 4 ring electric hob, washer/dryer, fridge and freezer. The Master bedroom is a generous double room which has a useful built in wardrobe. The Guest Bedroom, which is currently used as a Dining Room, offers ample space for a double bed and additional furniture if required. The Shower room has a Shower cubicle, a WC, a wash hand basin with vanity unit and a heated towel rail. Perfectly complementing the apartment are two useful storage cupboards which are located in the hallway.
Beecham Lodge is a beautiful development of 35 one and two bedroom retirement apartments in Cirencester, a town perfectly situated on the southern border of the Cotswolds. Cirencester is known as the ‘Capital of The Cotswolds’ and is famous for its Roman history, being the second largest Roman town outside of London. Cirencester has an abundance of cultural attractions, including the Corinium Museum, roman Amphitheatre and the Abbey Grounds.
The town itself features one of the oldest Charter Markets in the country, a shopping experience not to be missed with plants, outdoor furniture, wicker baskets, food and household goods available. In addition, the Market Place within the town offers something for everyone, with a choice of high street stores, independent retailers, local boutiques, cafés and restaurants, as well as Bishops Walk undercover shopping centre.
Beecham Lodge is located on Somerford Road, a picturesque residential area just half a mile from the centre of Cirencester. Within walking distance you will find local amenities including a convenience store, pharmacy and local fish and chip shop for those Friday night suppers.
Just three miles from Beecham Lodge is Cirencester Golf Club, where golfers of all levels are welcome to turn up and play without booking. For those venturing further afield Cirencester provides great links via motorway or rail to the cities of Oxford, Bristol and the south coast of Wales. Staying closer to home you can take full advantage of the Cotswolds, enjoying leisurely days out exploring nearby Berkeley Castle, the Cotswold Wildlife Park or a family picnic at Sudeley Castle and gardens.
Beecham Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront. The apartment has an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team, a secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.
Beecham Lodge’s manager Trudi is on hand throughout the day to support the Owners and keep the development in perfect shape as well as arranging many regular events in the Owners’ Lounge from coffee mornings to games afternoons. For any visiting guests, the furnished twin Guest Suite is perfect and available for just £15 per night for 1 visitor and £20 (£10 each) for 2 visitors. The same excellent value is available across more than 150 Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
Beecham Lodge is managed by the award-winning Millstream Management Services, working closely with Churchill Retirement Living and Stratton & King to maintain the highest standards of maintenance and service for every lodge and owner.
Beecham Lodge requires at least one apartment Owner to be over the age of 60 with any second Owner over the age of 55. Each apartment is completely self-contained with its own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it. When you fancy some company, you’ll find the Owners’ Lounge a popular and relaxed place to meet.
