London is home to an estimated two million people over the age of 50 and in order to accommodate the needs of this growing group a new breed of retirement housing has been created. A new retirement development in Lewisham, South London, part of the Christopher Boone development by Season’s parent company One Housing Group, will be opening for sale in March for the Londoners that want to stay part of the communities that they built during their lifetimes.
“Most people who come to us have spent a lifetime creating their communities and don’t want to be forced out. Quite often their home has become unwieldy and they want to see it go to a new family while they enjoy a better lifestyle with the sense of security, community and independence our developments offers,” said Nuala Foley from Season.
The new retirement living provision includes 30 two bedroom apartments available for purchase by over 57s. Every spacious apartment has large windows and patio doors, creating an abundance of natural light and is fronted by outside patios, balconies or terraces. Moreover, the development is populated with mature trees and connected by spacious covered walkways.
In addition, the apartments also have convenient wheelchair storage space and come ready for smart technology to be installed. The prices for the two bedroom apartments start from £530,000, while 26 other properties with two, three and four bedrooms will also be available for private sale at prices starting from £545,000.
The Christopher Boone development is located at a short distance from Greenwich Park and 15 minutes from the shops and the traditional outdoor weekend market of Lewisham shopping centre.
The sale and marketing manager of the development is SiteSales Property Group, a leading residential property sales and development consultancy in London and the South East.
“We’re pleased to be working for Season on this exciting new development, and to be bringing a range of attractive, affordable and convenient homes for the over-57s to Lewisham. With a summer garden, modern appliances and excellent transport links, this development is the perfect place to retire and enjoy this vibrant part of London,” said Eloise Robins, Associate Director of SiteSales Property Group.
