Full description

A Second Floor, South East facing apartment with a great balcony looking towards the Sandbanks peninsular. As the largest 1 bedroom apartment in Churchill Lodge at over 800 sqft (larger than most 2 bedrooms) and the only with a sun catching balcony, The Apartment is often described as the Penthouse of the lodge with large rooms and floods of sunlight. Designed and built to the very highest standards throughout both the apartment and shared spaces, every detail has been considered from fitting plenty of plug sockets, illuminated light switches and even a natural light tunnel in the kitchen, nothing has been missed. The beautifully landscaped gardens wrap around the rear and side of the lodge, so close to the coast you can smell the sea air. The gardens have potting sheds and a greenhouse for the keen gardener and plenty of shaded places to sit and relax with a good book. There is a private owners’ car park to the front of the lodge.

Churchill Lodge is an exclusive development of 51 one and two bedroom retirement apartments in the heart of Lilliput. Named as the flagship development of Churchill Retirement Living, the lodge is amongst some of the most exclusive and desirable properties in the world. Just a few doors down from the lodge are a bakery, fish and chip shop, convenience store, florist and hairdressers with the local doctors’ surgery and pharmacy just up the road. At the top of the road is Evening Hill with stunning views of Poole harbour, and an excellent viewing point for the summer fireworks. Being so close to the coast, 7 miles of Blue Flag beaches are within easy reach and it’s easy to travel further afield to Corfe Castle and Swanage across the chain ferry or in land towards the New Forest National Park. Transport links are excellent with a bus stop within 100 yards to the town centre as well as direct trains from Poole into London Waterloo and Bournemouth International Airport just a few miles away.

Churchill Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront, The Apartment has an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. Careline integrated intruder alarm, secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.

Leslie arranges many regular events in the Owners’ Lounge from coffee mornings to games afternoons. For any visiting guests, the furnished twin guest suite is perfect and available for just £15 per night for 1 visitor and £20 (£10 each) for 2 visitors. The same excellent value is available across more than 100 Churchill Retirement Lodges for owners to visit throughout the UK.
