Churchill Retirement Living

​Churchill Retirement Living is a privately owned, family-run housebuilder, and is the UK’s second largest retirement homes specialist. It was founded in 1994 by brothers Spencer and Clinton McCarthy, and has an ambition to be selling 1,000 homes a year by 2019. It has a head office in Hampshire and regional offices across England.

Homes for sale from the housebuilder are apartments designed for retirement living, typically one- or two-bedroom apartments with some communal facilities and a 24-hour hotline available in case of emergencies. It offers services to help buyers, including home exchange, removal services and sometimes help with legal fees and specialist financial advice for the over-55s.

The company chooses the sites for its new developments based on location and good transport links so residents are able to easily access local amenities and leisure facilities.

Churchill Retirement Homes has won numerous awards over the years, including several WhatHouse? Awards, notably the Housebuilder of the Year title in 2016, becoming the first retirement specialist ever to win. They also won Bronze in the Best Medium Housebuilder category at the WhatHouse? Awards in both 2020 and 2021 and most recently won bronze for Best Retirement Development at the 2022 WhatHouse? Awards.

In 2015, it launched the Churchill Foundation, with Dame Esther Rantzen DBE as its Patron. The foundation aims to transform lives through investment in three areas: the support and wellbeing of the young, the promotion of health among the elderly and the relief of sickness, disease and human suffering. It also supports smaller, local charities with donations.

Award Comments
Riverain Lodge, from specialist Churchill Retirement Living, comprises 72 one- and two-bedroom apartments in a riverside location, with many of the homes benefiting from views over the River Tone.
It is certainly proving a sales hit as a fast-selling scheme. Taking advantage of the location, the majority of the apartments have balconies or patios and the design focuses on maximising the relationship between indoor and outdoor living spaces, such as the use of bifold doors from the owners’ lounge to the patio area.
Churchill has taken what was a brownfield site – a former supermarket – and revitalised this riverside area of the town, as well as providing much-needed retirement living accommodation for the neighbourhood – an economic and visual regeneration of the area.
