Just south of London is the McCarthy & Stone Upper Norwood Retirement Living development, an intimate complex with 26 one and two bedroom apartments for those over 60. The beautiful apartments have fully fitted bathrooms and modern kitchens, equipped with an oven, hob and hood. Raised electrical sockets make life that little bit easier, and the telephone point in both the main bedroom and living room mean you're always connected. Homeowners will also be able to choose selected apartments that will feature extra large private balconies offering views over the landscaped gardens.
Homeowners can take advantage of the lovely club lounge and concierge service. There is a 24-hour emergency call system for extra peace of mind.
The Retirement Living development is in an ideal location, with local shops, including a Tesco Express, half a mile away, and a larger supermarket just 10 minutes with the bus. There are plenty of public transport options – West Norwood, Gypsy Hill and Stratham Common stations are within a couple of miles and provide regular services to Clapham Junction, London Victoria and London Bridge.
Upper Norwood is just seven miles from the heart of London, and is a great place to enjoy the countryside while still being within easy reach to the bustling capital. Once the home of the Great North Wood, Upper Norwood is still a very scenic area, with great views over the City of London, the Docklands and Surrey.
Upper Norwood is a great place to walk around – you'll see plenty of quaint 19th and 20th century houses, the Church of St John the Evangelist, designed in Gothic Revival style, and the local library.
Crystal Palace Park is right nearby, a Victorian pleasure ground that has full-scale dinosaur sculptures, children's play areas, a maze and a concert bowl. There is also a National Sports Centre and athletic stadium. From the park, you can start the lovely Green Chain Walk, which takes you to the likes of Chislehurst, Erith, the Thames Barrier and Thamesmead. It's a lovely little spot to enjoy on a sunny afternoon!
