About Stuart Court
Stuart Court is situated on Recorder Road, along with other developments designed for older people. It is adjacent to the Cathedral Close and enjoys easy access to the bank of the River Wensum with delightful walks along the riverside. It is also very close to the Railway Station and buses stop nearby on Recorder Road or Prince of Wales Road.
Stuart Court was built in 1915 and consists of 14 bedsits, three one-bedroom flats and five two-bedroom flats. In general two-bedroom accommodation will only be allocated to couples who can show a health or similar need for the additional bedroom. The building is set in lovely gardens which were renovated in 2015 as part of the centenary celebrations for Stuart Court.
This scheme does not have a resident or visiting Scheme Manager. Each flat is connected to the call system by means of pull cords in each of the main rooms. Pendants are available for those wishing for a higher degree of reassurance. The call system is monitored 24/7, and a mobile response is provided when necessary.
