Blenheim Lodge is a prestigious development of retirement apartments which is ideally situated on one of the main roads on the edge of the town centre, known as ‘The Gateway to the Chilterns’. Amersham is an attractive and affluent town located less than 30 miles North West of London in the county of Buckinghamshire.
Consisting of two main areas, Old Amersham and Amersham-on-the-Hill, this town offers excellent transport connections to London by Road, train and underground.
Amersham-on-the-Hill features a good range of high street shops together with a selection of traditional, independent stores, while also featuring The Charter Market once a week. Old Amersham High Street offers a small, but comprehensive selection of shops and a variety of stalls regularly trade under the Old Town’s Market Hall (which also features a varied programme of exhibitions and events including the August Arts Festival). Amersham is enjoying a growing reputation as the place to go for fine food, and those who take pleasure eating out will enjoy the selection of pubs and restaurants situated throughout the town.
Comprehensive sports amenities are available in the town’s Leisure Centre at Amersham-on-the-Hill. The complex includes a swimming pool, boules and tennis facilities, while Hervines Park is home to a six-rink bowling green. For those in search of more leisurely pursuits, an 18-hole golf course is available at Harewood Downs Golf Club, or a 9-hole course at nearby Little Chalfont.
Blenheim 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.
Blenheim Lodge’s manager, Denise, is on hand to support the residents and keep the development in perfect shape. Denise 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 £20 per night for friends and family. The same excellent value is available for you to use across more than 150 Retirement Lodges throughout the UK.
Blenheim Lodge is managed by the award winning Millstream Management Services, working closely with Churchill Retirement Living and Stratton & King to maintain the highest standards of maintenance and service for every lodge and owner.
Blenheim Lodge requires at least one apartment resident to be over the age of 60 with any second resident over the age of 55. Each Apartment is completely self-contained with its own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it. When you fancy some company, you’ll find the Owners’ Lounge a popular and relaxed place to meet.
