Owners settle into life at new retirement development

Churchill Retirement Living has welcomed its first Owners at Avonbank Lodge in Newbury, where a thriving community is starting to take shape.

The age exclusive development on West Street has seen the first wave of Owners move into their brand new one and two bedroom apartments with Noeline Rycroft and Barbara Minihane among them.

Noeline moved into Avonbank Lodge in July from the North Norfolk coast. She said: “As I am partially sighted, I wanted to move closer to my family. I had looked at other apartments, but thought I should really look further ahead to the future and so visited the development. The sales team were excellent and I really am enjoying life here at Avonbank Lodge, it’s been the best move I could have made.”

Barbara has also relocated to Newbury with family in mind. She said: “I sold my bungalow in Gloucestershire to move to Avonbank Lodge as I wanted to be near to my son, who lives in Newbury. The sales process was made very straightforward and the sales team were great. Since moving in, I’ve settled in well into my new home – the apartment is very well designed and the location is perfect.”

Avonbank Lodge is located in the heart of Newbury town centre and comprises 59 private, self-contained apartments which boast spacious rooms throughout and have been considerately designed with the over 60s in mind.

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 easy-turn lever taps in both the kitchen and bathroom and 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. The Lodge Manager will oversee the day-to-day running of the development.

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, enjoying a chat with neighbours, or attending one of the many events, which will take place in the Owners’ Lounge.
