Situation - Florence Court is situated close to the Bradley Road with access from Rutland Crescent about half a mile to the West of the town centre. There is a supermarket a short walk away and the town centre offers an excellent range of shopping, leisure and educational amenities within easy distance. The development is quietly tucked away and the apartment is well situated to the rear of the development over looking the communal gardens.

Trowbridge is the County Town of Wiltshire and has benefitted from significant development, which is still ongoing, and offers a good range of schooling for all ages, excellent shopping, restaurants and leisure facilities, including a multiplex cinema and sports centre. Trowbridge is easily accessible from the M4 and has a railway station providing regular services to Salisbury and Southampton to the south and Bath and Bristol to the northwest.

Description - The apartment is situated to the rear of the building on the top floor with windows overlooking the attractive and private landscaped communal gardens. The apartment is well presented and significantly larger than the most other apartments due to its position on an inside corner with a large hallway with built in storage cupboard and airing cupboard and a separate WC, lounge/dining room with Juliet balcony overlooking the communal garden, well-appointed kitchen with eye level oven and lower work surfaces with electric hob, a good sized wet room and two double bedrooms. Central heating is from a communal gas boiler.

Florence Court is an exceptional extra care housing scheme run by the non-profit Bedfordshire Pilgrim Housing Association and specifically designed for the needs of people aged over 55 who feel they may need additional care in the future, or who already have care needs. Individual care plans are flexible to meet the changing needs of each resident. Care is provided by the charitable Orders of St John Care Trust.

Florence Court provides for independent living in light, airy and spacious homes in a friendly and supportive community. The individual homes are built to a high standard and are economical, while spacious communal areas provide excellent additional facilities.

Prospective buyers should be over 55. Applications are subject to approval from BPHA.

There are 40 two-bedroom apartments in the scheme which combine affordable homes of mainly shared ownership properties with some for rent and offering a wide range of services including on site care staff, non-resident manager and full alarm system.

The whole development is well designed and spacious standing in its own grounds. There are social and community activities within the development including hair salon and treatment room, communal living room with dining area and communal kitchenette opening onto the communal gardens, residents library & movie room, laundry room and additional top floor lounge. There are facilities and charging points for mobility scooters, parking for residents and visitors and extensive well-maintained communal gardens.

    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: obtained from Ofcom on March 4, 2022

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

    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
