This development is subject to planning. The specification of our retirement apartments does vary to a degree with each apartment in every development, but this will give you an idea of what you'll find within a new two bedroom McCarthy & Stone apartment.
This development is subject to planning.
Luxurious apartments. Spectacular views. Fantastic transport links throughout Surrey and into London. If you're tired of the upkeep of a large family home, our proposed Bookham development could be just the place for you. We want to help you ‘rightsize', not downsize. With just 24 apartments proposed, all two-beds, it will reflect the close-knit community feel of the charming village in which it is situated. All apartments will have private outdoor spaces or balconies and those facing the road will enjoy glorious views over Norbury Park – a designated site of special interest. Homeowners will also have full access to the development's beautiful landscaped gardens.
With the exteriors and grounds maintained by our team, and all apartments designed to be easy to manage and maintain, you'll have more of that most precious of commodities: Free time! Excellent security features mean you can rest easy whenever you go away, and with more parking spaces than apartments, parking won't be an issue. There'll even be a cycle store for the cyclists among you.
The development site is just 0.7 miles from the High Street, where you'll find boutique stores, a greengrocers, a butchers and a bakery, as well as a few pubs, a Post Office, an opticians and a dry cleaners. As well as being within easy access of the M25, there's a bus stop outside the site and Bookham railway station is less than a mile away, where trains depart every 30 minutes to London Waterloo (with a journey time of just one hour).
Is there anything more quintessential than a British village market? Bookham – a typically charming Surrey village – holds one every Friday, where you can pick up beautifully handcrafted items and delicious homemade goods.
With the development site situated right on the edge of Norbury Park and the Surrey Hills, you'll not be wanting for green space. The park and hills, being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offer excellent wildlife-spotting opportunities and a wealth of paths and tracks for you to explore.
Polesden Lacey, a National Trust site just over 2 miles from the development, is another beautiful place for country walks. Take a tour of the house and admire its lavish interior and extensive collection of art and ceramics. Explore the beautifully landscaped gardens, which have something different to offer in every season. And the wider estate offers several waymarked trails through enchanting woodland and rolling hills.
Just off the High Street there's a bowls club and a tennis club. Whether you're looking to hone your sporting prowess or simply try something new and meet new people, both clubs are happy to welcome new members of all ages and abilities. The tennis courts are also available for hire by non-members at certain times, and both clubs run a number of events throughout the year.
And to keep your mind, as well as your body, active, why not consider joining the Bookham and District University of the Third Age (U3A). With a variety of groups to join and various outings organised every year for local residents, there's something for everyone, from art appreciation and cake decorating to computing, classical music and cycling.
