A new home at Hampton Manor, Godalming makes life easier for David and Maggie Stewart

David and Maggie Stewart were living in a five-bedroom house set in two acres on the borders of Surrey and West Sussex when Mrs Stewart’s ill health necessitated a move to a more suitable property.    As Mrs Stewart is suffering from a rare illness that has left her unable to cope with stairs, the couple searched for a suitable ground floor apartment in the area.  They found what they were looking for at Beechcroft’s Hampton Manor in Godalming.

Hampton Manor, formerly a hotel, has been carefully converted into just 24 two and three-bedroom homes by Beechcroft.  The development is set in beautifully landscaped and fully maintained communal gardens with allocated parking and the apartments provide lovely views over mature woodland.  There’s an Estate Manager to handle the day-to-day administration of the development, including organising the cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas and the upkeep of both private gardens and the landscaped setting.

“My wife is a keen gardener – we had two acres of gardens in our former home,” says Mr Stewart.  “When we visited Hampton Manor, we were impressed by the show apartment which has a private garden and we were lucky enough to be able to buy it.  Of course, it is difficult moving into an apartment from a large five-bedroom house but our new home is very spacious.  We are very happy with the apartment we chose – and with life here which is very peaceful.   Our neighbours are very nice and we are able to live independently; the atmosphere is just right, friendly without being intrusive.”

“The estate management service is fantastic.  The manager is so obliging – if you want any help at all, he is on hand.  Since moving here, I spend most of my time looking after my wife but a carer comes in one day a week and I am able to go and play golf.”

Anyone wanting to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle with an elegant, energy-efficient, easy to maintain apartment within easy reach of everything Godalming has to offer needs to visit Hampton Manor where the final apartments are now available.  These include a three-bedroom converted apartment on the second floor with a Juliet balcony priced at £625,000 and a three-bedroom, second floor apartment with a private balcony priced at £645,000. Both come complete with carpets, curtains and light fittings.
