New retirement homes in the UK

Posted 17 September 2015 by Keith Osborne

WhatHouse specialises in new homes and new retirement homes in the UK, properties specifically aimed at retirees. Find new build retirement homes with WhatHouse?

New build retirement homes – properties specifically aimed at retirees – represent a sector of the housebuilding market that is growing, in response to a greater number and higher proportion of older people in the UK.

For more and more people, moving into retirement communities or apartments gives them the comfort of owning their own home – one that is more manageable and less troublesome to run than a larger, older property – while providing a secure environment, with access to emergency care if needed, surrounded by like-minded neighbours.

There are different types of new retirement homes but they are all energy-efficient, cost-effective and need no running repairs. Many offer a range of communal facilities such as a residents’ lounge and landscaped gardens, while some offer even more facilities and have the feel of a five-star hotel.

For example, Churchill Retirement Living is a family-run housebuilder that specialises in building attractive retirement apartments in the UK.
