New retirement apartments coming to Purley

Posted 13 July 2016 by Keith Osborne

Buyers over 60 have a new range of apartments to choose from in the south of London, with one- and two-bedroom homes now for sale off-plan...

Retirement specialist PegasusLife has launched a brand new collection of apartments for over-60s in Purley, south London at its development Carriages.

The scheme comprises 28 one- and two-bedroom apartments located close to the centre of Purley, a short walk from its High Street and railway station. These properties have a striking contemporary design that features floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise natural light, with many benefiting from a private terrace.

There are communal facilities too at this retirement living scheme, including a lounge and rooftop terrace, reading corner, larder and shared dining table. A guest suite is also available for friends and family to stay the night.  The development has been designed by award-winning architects, Woods Bagot so that residents can enjoy privacy in their own properties but also have the ability to share their leisure time with like-minded neighbours.

Ben Gershon of selling agency Frosts says: “We have many customers who want to downsize and stay close to their families but they do not want to compromise on style and the brilliant access a place like Purley provides.

“From our in-depth understanding of the local market, many retirees want somewhere to live that is smaller than the family home, but also offers the opportunity to socialise, make friends and be part of a community. These customers are looking for something that is right for them but far removed from what we see as a more traditional retirement home. With Carriages we now have something to offer these customers.”

The apartments at Carriages are currently available off-plan from £368,750 on a 1000-year lease.
