Purcells Court

Purcells Court is one of the closest retirement developments to the centre of Marlborough. Easy walking distance to the two supermarkets, doctors surgery and open parkland. It has the particular advantage over other developments as you are buying a leasehold and become a freeholder on completion. Every resident owns 1/15th of the development, with in house management by Warwick Estates who employ a House Manager who is on duty for 2 hours a day during the week. This also helps the development to maintain the building to a very high standard with care line facilities and the communal areas and gardens are maintained whilst keeping the monthly service cost to a reasonable amount

From the car park we walk into a communal hall, right and right again and the front door is on the left. Stepping through the front door into a good sized hall with airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. First right into the shower room with a modern suite and a large walk in shower.
