If you're looking to retire to a quiet, leafy, residential suburb, but with quick and easy transport links into London, Purley could well be the place for you. Our proposed Retirement Living development in Purley will feature just 26 apartments, reflecting the town's close-knit community feel. Most will be two-beds, with a few one-beds also on offer, and some will even have balconies overlooking the site's beautiful landscaped gardens. Homeowners will also have full use of the club lounge, a tastefully designed space where you'll be able to catch up with neighbours over a tea or coffee.
By retiring to our Purley development, you could free yourself of some of the more burdensome aspects of homeownership. Property management and maintenance will be taken care of, as will water and sewerage rates. The House Manager will manage the development day-to-day and will be available during office hours should anything crop up. What's more, you'll have access to a 24-hour emergency call centre, there'll be a camera-entry system, and we guarantee accessibility throughout, with lifts to all floors.
We're here to make your retirement easier, giving you more time to enjoy the finer things in life. Pop into Purley town centre, just 0.3 miles away, to sample some of its many restaurants and cafes, boutiques and salons. And if you're looking to travel further afield, Purley railway station is just 0.4 miles from the development, where regular trains run to London Victoria and surrounding areas. You can also very easily access both the M23 and the M25.
Purley has a bustling yet charming town centre where you'll find all the amenities you could hope for: Large supermarkets and small independent shops, high-street favourites and one-of-a-kind boutiques, pubs, cafes, bars and restaurants. There's also several banks, a Post Office and even a public library (which hosts regular events for the community). You'll also find the leisure centre on the high street, where over-60s swim for free. For those who play a sport, Purley Sports Club is just a mile from the development. Here you can join as a member for a particular sport, including bowls, cricket, squash and tennis, and discounts are offered for joining up for two or more. There's even a dance studio that holds a variety of classes, including ballroom tuition.
If it's fresh air and green spaces you're looking for, you won't need to go far. Purley Beeches – a pleasant stretch of parkland with a small woodland area and public tennis courts – is just a mile from the development. And it's only 3.5 miles to Kenley Common, 139 acres of grassland and ancient woodland with great wildlife-spotting opportunities.
For all you golfers, Purley boasts two golf clubs. From Purley Downs Golf Club enjoy a round while admiring stunning views towards London's iconic skyline. And Woodcote Park Golf Club is one of the longer courses in Surrey, which, being situated on top of the Downs, can pose a real challenge when the wind is blowing. Both clubs warmly welcome visitors and have great membership offers.
