Situated near to the High Street in the town of Carshalton, Laurel Lodge is a stylish development of 57 one and two bedroom retirement apartments.
Carshalton is often described as a scenic town and possesses numerous architecturally attractive buildings. Most commonly known for its two ponds, playing host to an abundance of wildlife, Carshalton is situated within a London suburb and benefits from the Freedom Pass.
Historically, Carshalton can be dated back to the Iron Age with agricultural beginnings. To this day, Carshalton retains its rich historic feel with a Grade II listed church and museum, Anne Boleyn’s Well and multiple conservation areas. Many of Carshalton’s listed buildings are widely considered to contain some of the finest historical architecture in the Borough.
Carshalton is famous for its stunning historic lavender fields where, during the right seasons, fields of purple can be seen providing a spectacular view. A local community project was set up to retain the fields and tend the flowers. Benefiting from a host of shops, eateries, cafes, pubs and welcoming tea rooms, there is something to suit all tastes!
Carshalton’s leisure centre offers a variety of activities and social pursuits. Meanwhile a local supermarket, doctors surgery, dentist and pharmacy allows you to have all of these essential amenities close by.
