Retirement living is thriving in Caterham according to housebuilder Churchill Retirement Living as it announces there are now just a few apartments remaining at its Caterham Lodge development in the town.
The development has proved a popular choice with local retirees thanks to its ideal location and lively community. What’s more, with a range of services available to help you make the move, retiring to Caterham Lodge couldn’t be easier as Anne Scherrer, Marketing Manager at Churchill Retirement Living, explains:
“Caterham Lodge has proved incredibly popular and the community here is a real mix of people who already lived locally and wanted to leave their larger properties, and those who have relocated to be nearer family and friends.
“There’s a great community atmosphere at the Lodge and it offers all the support and facilities needed for a worry-free retirement. With quiz and games afternoons, weekly coffee mornings and film clubs amongst just some of the social events that take place, it’s the perfect choice for anyone looking for a safe, secure, low maintenance property to downsize to, with plenty to enjoy, in a central location.
“Many Owners have also made the most of our Home Exchange service and Selling Made Easy package, which pays towards your estate agent and solicitor fees, arranges removals and includes a free Energy Performance Certificate to help you sell your previous home. With just a handful of apartments now remaining, potential buyers will have to act quickly to make the most of the lifestyle on offer at Caterham Lodge.”
Sisters Sybil and Margaret Lown were two of the first Owners to move to the Lodge from South Lincolnshire. Having been neighbours for over 60 years the two decided the time was right to move closer to family.
Sybil said: “When we decided it was time to move, location was very important. We looked at a number of retirement developments but Caterham Lodge really stood out to us because everything we needed is on the doorstep. It’s close to all of the local shops and the train station, bus stop and taxi rank. The transport links are so good that I ended up selling my car!”
“We have settled in very well and are extraordinarily lucky to have met such nice people at the Lodge. We regularly go down to the Owners’ Lounge for lunch and to socialise. Kim the Lodge Manager is also wonderful and very caring. She is always on hand to help with any problems we might have, which is very reassuring. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her.”
Caterham Lodge on Stafford Road, offers a range of one and two bedroom apartments exclusively designed for the over 60s. The apartments boast spacious rooms throughout and are 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, and enjoying a chat with neighbours, or attending one of the many events, in the Owners’ Lounge.
The development is ideally placed to take advantage of the shopping and leisure facilities of Caterham. Within a few hundred yards of the development is Waitrose supermarket and the Miller Centre, a theatre and community centre which hosts a number of shows and films throughout the year, and is also the base for various clubs and community groups.
