There are many of important decisions to make when it comes to retirement. What is important for you? A peaceful environment? Community? Beautiful surrounds? Living in a prestigious yet affordable English country house? Time to focus on your favourite pastimes while the chores of everyday life are taken care of for you? Read on for more information about a place that offers you all of the above and more.
Imagine a place where when you go through the gate near the foot of the drive, you find a path that leads you up onto the stunning landscape of the South Downs. If you have no car, transport is provided to take you shopping once a week, to the nearby medical centres and to cultural events.
Imagine a place where you live in a fully serviced apartment where you are able to forget about the everyday worries of running a house, as it is all done for you. The kitchen is in the hands of two well-qualified cooks, and excellent breakfast, lunch and supper are provided every day. Your apartment is regularly cleaned and maintained.
Imagine a place where in summer, there are large gardens at your disposal. If you are a keen gardener, there is plenty of scope for you to go on exercising your skills, whether in the walled garden or perhaps tending a vegetable plot. If you prefer just to take it easy out of doors, there is plenty of shade. There is also a croquet lawn, grass tennis court, ponds for fishing, farm animals, and table tennis.
Imagine a place where you have the advantage of being able to rent rather than buy your apartment. This frees up your equity and relieves you of the burden and inflexibility of retirement ownership. Council tax is included in your monthly rental, as are heating, lighting and water, the use of the laundry-room, and, indeed, access to all parts of the estate. There is also free parking for your car.
It's time to focus on the things that bring you the most joy
