If you are over 55 years old and wanting to own a retirement property without the burden of maintenance and repairs, Anchor-managed properties may be the answer. Anchor estates are all very different. They range from a small cul–de-sac of six bungalows to a large estate of 86 apartments. Most are set in pleasant landscaped settings.
At each estate there will be an estate manager who can act as the first point of contact for any queries that residents may have and offer help to access any local services.
All Anchor estates offer a 24-hour alarm call service in private and shared areas. Every estate will have either a resident or visiting manager who provides help, advice and co-ordinates any services provided.
In addition to each individual private property, all Anchor estates offer some shared facilities, available for the use and enjoyment of all the residents, and managed and maintained by Anchor.
Shared facilities vary from one estate to the next. Anchor estates offer some or all of the following:
- a guest suite for visitors
