A spacious maisonette apartment within a bespoke and luxury independent retirement development, situated in the village of Motcombe near Shaftesbury, Dorset.
An attractive ground and first floor maisonette, with spacious accommodation.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes, one of which has an en suite shower room and there is a further bathroom.
Within The Grange is a gracious dining room, drawing room, bar, library and hairdressing salon. A croquet lawn is located in the grounds. The dining room, which is open for optional lunches five days a week, offers a varied menu to a very high standard and is very well supported by the residents. Bridge, Scrabble, Ballet and film evenings are regular weekly fixtures, mostly organised by the residents, alongside social lunches, bar evenings and more. Communal Physio Sessions are available every other week. The Grange has a weekly visiting hairdresser and a chiropodist visits every 6 weeks.

The Manager is in the office 9.30- 2 pm Monday Friday and the live-in Deputy Manager is on duty at all other times. A Residential Relief Manager covers the weekend.

On the first floor there is an elegant guest room with TV and an en suite shower, available for guests visiting their relatives or prospective residents viewing apartments and living a distance away.

The grounds, extending to 3 acres, are beautifully maintained and lead down past a large pond to a country walk, making it ideal for dog owners and walkers alike.
