Consort Village comprises 13 bungalows and 40 ground or first floor apartments in a lovely tranquil setting in Plymouth’s attractive residential area of Hartley. It is a secure, gated community with an age related entry criterion. The beautifully tended grounds and gardens feature various trees, herbaceous borders and a number of benches, all of which are situated within a secure walled environment. Doctor and dental surgeries, a supermarket, newsagents and a variety of other small shops are all close by. There are frequent bus services with stops just outside the village main gate or within a couple of minutes walk, which will take you to these amenities or straight into the City Centre and also to Plymouth’s Derriford and Nuffield hospitals. Each property has an allocated parking space and visitors may park safely on the inner road.
To live in Consort Village at least one resident must be aged 60 or over and everyone must be capable of independent living, with no care packages in place. The village is suited to both single people and couples.
Consort Village is enclosed by an attractive natural stone boundary wall with access through electronically operated main gates. Those gates are closed at night, for peace of mind, safety and security, a 24 hour Careline alarm system is fitted to each property.
The gardens are maintained to a very high standard by a landscape gardener. A contractor is employed to clean the external windows of each property once a month and for residents’ convenience bags are provided for rubbish to be collected from outside each front door three times per week. Recycled rubbish is collected once a week. There are lifts and staircases to all first floor apartments. The office organises a free repeat prescription service. These services are all included in the maintenance charge which is reviewed annually. This charge also covers the Careline alarm system and external maintenance. A list of reliable tradesmen is held by the office should any internal work need to be done.
Residents have the option to participate in any of the many social activities that take place. These include quizzes, afternoon teas, coach trips, talks by local speakers and coffee mornings to name but a few. There is a library which also has a fine selection of jigsaws. Each month a reading book club meets. There is also a craft afternoon, a walking club and much more.
The village is visited regularly by a fishmonger, greengrocer, milkman and pasties are delivered. A fully qualified podiatrist visits the village every six weeks.
With consideration to all residents, pets are not permitted.
