Further Development Information
The apartment provides a lifestyle choice for people over sixty years of age wishing to reduce their personal responsibilities in respect of managing their own property. It offers an opportunity to belong to an active community and the option to participate in shared activities as organised by the apartment 'owners' themselves which take place in the beautiful, shared lounge on the ground floor. Outside there is a shared patio surrounded by maintained mature trees and flowerbeds so that summer days can be enjoyed alongside other owners in the outdoors.Given that 30 Yeats lodge is a one-bedroom apartment, this does not mean that a new 'owner' cannot have family and friends to stay. For a nominal amount, the beautiful guest suite (on the second floor directly above the apartment) is available for 'owners' to book, so they can enjoy having visitors stay overnight. As part of the organisation of Yeats Lodge, Churchill Living employs a Lodge Manager who is available within office hours to look after the building in general and also support 'owners' with any help they need with their individual apartments. Each apartment is fitted with a Careline intercom and personal tag meaning there is support 24/7 for any apartment 'owner' that needs it.
