The Sophie Barat Residence is a wonderfully safe, secure and friendly place to live. I have been here for just over 2 years and very pleased that I made the decision to move in. When you live alone it is great to know that, in an emergency, with the press of a button someone will be at your door in minutes.
The grounds are beautifully kept and there is access to Mount Anville School grounds which are directly behind the SBR and a lovely place to go for a stroll. Deer Park is also close by.
Shops, including post office and chemist, 5 minutes’ walk away. Also, there is very good public transport.
The fact that I am in my twentieth year living in the Sophie Barat Residence seems to say it all.
The main reasons why I have been living here so long are, firstly, the peace and tranquillity. Being a gated facility is most conducive to sound sleep! Also having a co-ordinator on duty for 24 hours a day means that residents can have a sense of there being a ‘guardian angel’ available should an acute difficulty occur. There is an alarm bell in each room of the bungalows.
Independent living, backed by unobtrusive security in such a convenient locality, are huge incentives to remaining in this pleasant, calm and harmonious environment.
My name is Madeleine. I moved into my bungalow in July 1998 and have enjoyed a very happy nineteen years residing here.
Sophie Barat is a small gated estate supported by CCTV surveillance. Residents also have the reassurance of a 24/7 on call system should assistance be required thus affording complete security and peace of mind.
I am very happy to be living here.
