Location & description

Goodrich Court occupies a truly accessible location, just east of the main shopping streets in the bustling market and tourist town of Ross-on-Wye. The complex is arranged over three floors, and was constructed by McCarthy & Stone some 21 years ago. The location has the advantage of a short, almost level walk to the stone built Market House in the centre of those familiar with Goodrich Court will know, there is an excellent Residents Lounge just off the Foyer, a 24 hour Careline System, Communal Laundry, Maintained Gardens and House Manager. There is also a Guest Suite for those visiting friends who may wish to hire same at a most reasonable price!Despite a commonly held view to the contrary, the layout, orientation and size of the apartments in Goodrich Court do in fact vary considerably. Over the years, we have sold many different apartments, and, on first entering this particular apartment, we felt it had an immediate appeal which many others lack. A skylight over the approach to the apartment makes for a particularly light entrance threshold, and the reception hall is larger than many. One then enters a superbly proportioned living/dining room, with glazing to both north and south elevations, and an excellent southern end with space for a dining table & sideboard. The fluted mock fireplace with marble insert and hearth is of appeal, and double doors lead from a north corner of the room into the small but well appointed kitchen. Both bedrooms look out over the lawned gardens beneath, whilst the master bedroom has an excellent suite of floor to ceiling fitted bedroom furniture. All in all, one of the most pleasing apartments we have offered for detail the property comprises:-
