This Retirement Living development will be situated on the banks of the River Lea in Essex. The ancient market town of Waltham Abbey is a beautiful location steeped in history, with its impressive church believed to be the final resting place of King Harold II.
All of the development’s 52 apartments (both one- and two-beds available) will feature beautiful yet comfortable design, and some will even have their own balconies. At its heart will be a cosy communal lounge, where homeowners will be able to socialise, and the communal garden will provide a peaceful space in which to enjoy some fresh air.
The House Manager will oversee all aspects of the development and will be available during office hours, plus there’ll be a 24-hour call system in case of emergencies. Accessibility is a key priority for us and so you’ll be able to get around all areas of the development no matter your level of mobility, with lifts to all floors. Plus, each apartment will have access to the camera entry system, so you’ll be able to see any visitors before letting them in.
The nearby supermarket is a pleasant stroll away and, for those who use a scooter, there’ll be a scooter storage room on site. The area is also very well connected, with the M25 and M11 both easily accessible, and the onsite car parking will make road trips even easier. What’s more, from the local train station you can reach Liverpool Street, London, in less than 40 minutes.

Living in Waltham Abbey
Waltham Abbey is a unique yet traditional market town. Alongside 16th-century timber-framed buildings sits the beautiful Art Nouveau town hall. And its royal connections, which alongside King Harold include Henry II and Henry VIII, mean the town is brimming with fascinating stories to tell.
Set in the grounds of the old abbey, Waltham Abbey Gardens are rich in history. With the abbey once one of the largest Augustinian abbeys in the country, the gardens feature information panels that bring its fascinating history to life. The beautiful rose gardens are the perfect place to enjoy a little peace and quiet or perhaps even a picnic. And, if you walk just a little further, you’ll enter Cornmill Meadows, a unique habitat that is home to a thriving variety of dragonflies and damselflies.
Bordering the Lee Valley Country Park, with Epping Forest on its doorstep, Waltham Abbey is perfectly placed to enjoy the great outdoors. The River Lee Country Park stretches over 1000 acres and is perfect for walkers, cyclists and wildlife watchers alike. Plus, Epping Forest is made up of an even larger area of woodlands, grasslands and other habitats, interspersed with historic villages and country pubs, including the world’s oldest wooden church and the CAMRA pub of Essex. What’s more, Epping Forest District Museum houses a collection of over 50,000 objects, from art to archaeological artefacts, telling the story of the Epping Forest district.
For those feeling a little adventurous and the downright adrenaline junkies, Lee Valley White Water Centre is nearby. On this Olympic course enjoy a range of white water activities, including white water rafting. And, for the spectators, the bar and café is the perfect spot from which to see all of the action.
West Essex Golf Club is also just over a mile from the development. Snaking through Epping Forest, the course offers spectacular views of the London skyline and is ranked in the top 10 in Essex. This friendly club welcomes visitors at most times, although certain times are reserved for members, and paying a green fee gives visitors access to a range of membership benefits. Make the most of the practice facilities, including a driving range, putting green and chipping green, and pop into the clubhouse to enjoy the excellent facilities in the bar and restaurant.
The development is conveniently located for all your shopping needs. For everyday essentials, you’ll find a Tesco Superstore only 2 miles from the development. The Pavilions Shopping Centre, which has a range of shops, cafés, and a pharmacy, is also only 3.5 miles away.
For lovers of the great outdoors, Waltham Abbey Gardens are just 2.5 miles away. Here you can admire the beautiful rose gardens, observe the local wildlife or enjoy a picnic in the lovely meadows.
