The future of retirement

The future of retirement

The retirement residential sector is busier than ever - with an ageing population requiring high quality homes and facilities to suit the lifestyle they are used to.

It’s fantastic that residential retirement provision is being recognised by the government and house builders as a sector which needs to expand and provide a better quality of living than has been stereotypically produced in the past. This new breed of over 55s communities and villages aims to introduce a more independent style of living – without sacrificing the facilities available in a traditional retirement offering.

The market as it stands

There’s a lot of action being seen in the market at the moment as the government is beginning to realise that more needs to be done to offer choices to those looking to retire. Downsizing has always been a hot topic and was discussed in the recent White Paper produced by the government. But, crucially, we’re finding that although this age bracket is looking to downsize, they don’t want to sacrifice on quality. Housebuilders are now catching on, seeing the potential profits available and positive impact that can be had in introducing good quality, luxury builds into the retirement sector.

Pygott & Crone’s newest retirement development

We’re delighted to be working with Keystone Developments – part of the Longhurst Group – which is creating an exciting new over 55s scheme in Humberston. This new residential scheme has a host of incredibly facilities – including a croquet lawn, bowls green, residents’ lounge and clubhouse. It also comes with a gardener, window cleaner, handyman and a warden.

This provides buyers with the opportunity to live independently whilst providing the reassurance of living in a safe and secure environment – it also means you’re free to go on holiday without having to worry about home or garden maintenance. It really does provide the perfect balance of independent and assisted living which has a great community aspect.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to purchase a one, two or three bedroom property – which will be set within a beautifully manicured 400 unit development – and to express an interest do get in touch with the Cleethorpes branch: 01472 290 443 or
