We do like to be beside the seaside…
05 June 2014
Retiring by the seaside remains an ever popular choice as our latest sales have confirmed.
Five out of ten of our best-selling developments this year are in coastal locations - Seaford, Hythe, Porthcawl, Llandudno and Eastbourne. To meet this strong demand, we are offering the widest selection of seaside retirement developments across the UK, with properties at 39 coastal locations.
With a study by the European Centre for Environment and Human Heath* finding that people are more likely to have good health the closer they live to the sea, retiring by the coast also appears to be a sensible choice.
Our Seaford development is a great example as 86% of the apartments have been reserved off-plan which is fantastic and shows just how popular retiring by the sea continues to be. One of the latest seaside developments to be launched is in Tenby, in Pembrokeshire. With it’s stunning sea views over north beach and the harbour, Paxton Court will comprise 36 one and two bedroom retirement apartments.
All of our properties are ideal for those looking for independence in an environment which offers companionship, privacy and security, and with 39 coastal locations available - the choice couldn’t be better for those wishing to smell the sea air.
