First Owners Settle in to Their New Homes At Edinburgh Lodge

Churchill Retirement Living has welcomed its first Owners at its new Edinburgh Lodge in Orpington, marking the start of a brand-new community in the town and a new milestone for the development.

One of the first to settle in was Peter Chin, who says: “The idea of a retirement home has eased my life in many ways, it is such a relief to not have to worry about any home or garden maintenance. I can happily leave to go on holiday knowing my home is safe, secure and looked after by our lodge manager – I highly recommend attending a coffee morning at a nearby lodge to you just to get a feel of the place, meet other residents and see how great it is.

Judith Jones also moved into Edinburgh Lodge and added: “We are already building a friendly community in lovely grounds. Having our lodge manager, Dermot, has been a great addition to our community as he is always in a good mood and willing to help with anything, nothing is too much trouble for him or the rest of the Churchill team. The rooms are bright and well-decorated, and I feel as though I have settled in well in such a calm and delightful home – it has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made.”

Joan Damsell, another Owner at Edinburgh Lodge, said: “Everybody has been so friendly and helpful during the moving in process, I just love the size and convenience of the apartments. There are great amenities close by including shops and restaurants, with easy travel connections and access to public transport.”

Anne Scherrer, Marketing Manager at Churchill Retirement Living South East, adds: “We’re so pleased to have welcomed the first Owners at Edinburgh Lodge and to see that they have settled in so comfortably. Our apartments are designed to make life easier and give them the freedom and peace to enjoy their retirement so it’s great to see the homes living up to their purpose. We urge anyone interested in an apartment at Edinburgh Lodge, which is now 50% sold, to get in touch and take a look at the remaining homes available.”

Edinburgh Lodge is a collection of 27 one- and two-bedroom apartments in Orpington, Kent close by to a bustling high street with plenty of shops and restaurants to visit, alongside leisure facilities and more retail parks. The apartments themselves have fully integrated and tiled kitchens, landscaped gardens with additional seating, a guest suite available for friends and family and a walk out balcony on selected apartments. Owners will also benefit from a dedicated lodge manager and a communal Owners lounge with a coffee bar and conservatory.
