Three ASPC Retirement Properties on the Current Market
Retirement properties are perfect for those looking to enjoy comfortable, practical and peaceful surroundings among fellow like-minded neighbours. Often, retirement flats or houses are set in small retirement communities and are better equipped than regular housing for the likes of security, access and social activities.
Those over 55s who enjoy a vibrant social life will be pleased to know that on-site residents’ lounges, dining rooms and shared gardens are regular features to retirement properties. Some homes also include guest rooms or on-site suites for visitors.
Gardens and buildings upkeep are usually maintained by the community’s management and so re-painting windows or getting out the lawnmower become chores of the past. Assisted living care services are generally offered by retirement villages for extra support.
We take a closer look at three retirement properties that are currently available on the market.
Set in a great location at Pitfodels, near Cults, this residential period house is a short 20-minute drive to the city centre. The home is set in approximately four and a half acres of landscaped gardens which are perfect for gentle strolls.
