*Energy Efficient* *Pet Friendly*

Introduction - Situated on the first floor, this is a very well presented one bedroom apartment with an outlook over the landscaped communal gardens and a lift service providing access to the excellent facilities of this ever-popular development. A good-sized living room has a focal point fireplace, there is an excellent fitted kitchen with a significant range of integrated appliances, a double bedroom with mirror fronted wardrobe and a wet room with a level access shower and the additional benefit of a bath.

Thomas Court was constructed in late summer of 2013 by multi-award winning McCarthy Stone, and remains one of our most sought-after developments. This is a 'Retirement Living Plus' development offering a lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70's and designed specifically for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a Homeowners' lounge, restaurant with a fantastic, varied daily table-service lunch, laundry room, scooter store and landscaped gardens. Homeowners also benefit from one hour of domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets, if required.

All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge per night applies.

It's so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Thomas Court - there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including a choir, art group, fitness classes, coffee mornings, games and quiz nights, themed events and occasional organised trips. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners 'dip in and out' of activities or quite naturally, remain as private as they wish.

The development is in an excellent position within a level walk of extensive amenities; shops, bars and restaurants, Doctors, Library, Roath Park and bus routes are all close at hand.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services

    Energy Performance data and Internal floor area: obtained on September 4, 2023 from The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 or the Home Report if in relation to a residential property in Scotland.
