This attractive Retirement Living PLUS development in lovely Lichfield includes 28 one bedroom and 37 two bedroom retirement apartments for sale - or for rent – exclusive to the over 70s, many with private balconies and all sharing beautiful communal facilities. These retirement properties in Lichfield are located in the heart of this historic city, so you’re close to a number of facilities and amenities, including pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, a pharmacy, an optician, a medical practice and a dentist. Central Lichfield is a great place for a spot of retail therapy too, as the quaint streets are lined with high street chains and independent boutiques.

Discover Retirement Living with a big PLUS

In these delightfully hassle-free and high-spec Retirement Living PLUS apartments, we’ll help you take care of the little things – as well as the bigger chores - so you can focus on doing what you love. You’d find all the benefits of a Retirement Living development but with thoughtful extra services that are there for you now, and in the future. This includes a friendly Manager onsite at all times and a chef run bistro, for when you don’t feel like cooking – or just fancy a barista-style coffee with a friend. There’s also a function room for parties and celebrations. An hour’s domestic support every week is included – more if you want it, plus the option of tailored personal care on tap should you need it. Pets are welcome too! 

Low maintenance and sociable

This Retirement Living PLUS development in Lichfield is designed to encourage community feeling to flourish, while also allowing you to enjoy the complete privacy of your own spacious retirement apartment. You’ll find stylish communal spaces, including a luxurious lounge with free Wi-Fi, and a large, landscaped garden and roof terrace - ideal for meeting your friends, neighbours and family for a drink and a chat. There will also be a hotel-style guest suite as a convenient alternative when people come to stay. The communal facilities will become social hubs – a hive of informal gatherings and regular clubs, events and meet-ups to suit all sorts of interests. You’ll find things like film nights, pie and mash lunches, knitting clubs, cocktail evenings, music, yoga, birthday parties and even the odd fiesta.

Safe and secure

All our new retirement apartments are designed with intelligent ergonomics and Modern Methods of Construction to ensure they are a joy to live in. As well as being well-insulated, warm and energy-efficient, they have the latest safety and security features built in. You’ll benefit from a 24-hour emergency call system, fire detection and door camera entry, so you can see who it is before answering the door - as well as the reassurance of a manager onsite at all times.

If you love the great outdoors, then Beacon Park is the place to be. Set in more than 70 acres of beautiful gardens, here you can enjoy a leisurely walk, a round of golf, a tennis match or a game of bowls. As you wander around the park, you’ll also find information boards that tell you more about the area’s rich historical past. Refreshments and ice cream are available in the bistro and the cafe next to the children's play area during peak season.

Plus, from our retirement properties in Lichfield, you’ll find it easy to take day trips to the surrounding areas.
