Standard features

All apartments at Churchill Retirement Living are completely self-contained with their own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it. 

There is a choice of one and two bedroom apartments and they may all vary slightly when it comes to dimensions and position of rooms.

Kitchens are tiled with colour-coordinated worktops, and come fully fitted with a waist-height oven, hob, hood and fridge/freezer. Most of our developments also have integral washer/dryers fitted in all apartments as standard.

Our standards

The master bedrooms have fitted mirror-front wardrobes as well as TV and telephone points, with even the smallest details considered.

The apartments come with tiled shower rooms as standard, while some of them have separate en-suites and cloakrooms as well – all designed for ease of use and with the needs of our customers in mind.

All apartments are stringently inspected by our Customer Services department to ensure they are handed over to the standard of finish and quality expected by our customers.

Middlemarch Lodge, Rickmansworth

“This development has ticked all the boxes for me. Churchill seem to find locations that are near the places that mean a lot to people – the shops, the library, the Council offices. That to me is the most important thing. It’s no good to me if I can’t live somewhere that suits my lifestyle. It’s excellent. I have settled in and have no regrets about the move”

"It’s absolutely perfect for me. Being so close I still use the same local shops and doctor’s surgery, so I still see many of my old friends and neighbours. But I also go to coffee mornings and spend time in the Owner’s Lounge where I can meet new people too."
