Churchill’s Sheldon Lodge recognised in town awards

Churchill Retirement Living is celebrating after picking up a local design award for its Sheldon Lodge development in Berkhamsted.

The complex of 48 privately-owned retirement apartments and communal facilities on High Street received a commendation from the Berkhamsted Citizens Association as part of its annual Environment Awards.  The awards are presented to the facility which is considered by a panel of judges to have contributed most to the enhancement of Berkhamsted. 

Greg Hilton, Churchill’s Regional Managing Director (Eastern), commented: “Sheldon Lodge has been carefully designed to be sympathetic to its surroundings, combining architectural heritage as well as innovative design - and it’s fantastic to be recognised in this way.

“The development is right in the heart of the town centre with all amenities right on your doorstep, yet is just a short distance from stunning countryside with lots of lovely walks nearby – it really is the best of both worlds.” 

The commendation is the latest in a number of award wins for Churchill Retirement Living who recently received the maximum five-star rating in an independent customer satisfaction survey, by industry body the Home Builders Federation (HBF).  The retirement developer was also named in the Top 100 Best Companies to work for in the UK by the Sunday Times. Achieving 14th place, Churchill was the only housebuilder to make the listing.

Sheldon Lodge is a collection of one and two bedroom privately owned retirement apartments and shared facilities, designed exclusively for the over 60s. Offering quality retirement accommodation and safe and independent living, the development is in a convenient location close to local shops and amenities. 

Apartments boast spacious rooms throughout and an ideal combination of design and functionality. The fully fitted, stylish kitchens include a built in fridge and freezer, hob and an oven, which is located at an easy-reach height. All of the properties benefit from illuminated light switches for added convenience. Owners also enjoy ultimate peace of mind from a fitted camera entry system for the highest level of security and a 24 hour emergency call system.

With less to worry about, Owners will have more time to do the things they enjoy, including taking advantage of the host of other benefits which will be on offer including having family or friends to stay in the development’s well-appointed Guest Suite, taking some time out in the on-site Wellbeing Suite and enjoying a chat with neighbours, or attending one of the many events, in the Owners’ Lounge.
