All apartments at Churchill Retirement Living are completely self-contained with their own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it.
There is a choice of one and two bedroom apartments and they may all vary slightly when it comes to dimensions and position of rooms.
This beautiful development of 33 apartments is built on the site of the former Gleneagles Hotel which inspired John Cleese to write the classic sitcom ‘Fawlty Towers’. The building has been named Sachs Lodge in memory of the late Andrew Sachs, fondly remembered by many for his role as Manuel in the sitcom and who passed away in 2016.
It features a spacious and contemporary Owners’ Lounge & Coffee Bar and a patio area within the secluded landscaped gardens for Owners to enjoy.
As you would expect from a seaside resort the coast is never far away; the development enjoys views across the dramatic Lyme Bay.
It's within a short walk of Ilsham Green a grassy expanse leading straight down to the sea and part of the South West Coast Foot Path.
The development is well-located for the desirable Wellswood Village which has an excellent selection of local shops and amenities including a Post Office, a patisserie, a pharmacy, a wine bar and a deli, beauticians and hairdressers.
The marina, seafront and town centre are just a short distance away for shopping and entertainment.
There are a number of award-winning restaurants and gastro pubs as well as the exclusive department store Hoopers, which offers four floors of fashion and lifestyle ranges.
On the outskirts of Torquay there are two out-of-town shopping centres with high street favourites Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Next as well as a choice of cafés and food outlets and ample free parking.
Kitchens are tiled with colour-coordinated worktops, and come fully fitted with a waist-height oven, hob, hood and fridge/freezer. Most of these developments also have integral washer/dryers fitted in all apartments as standard.
The master bedrooms have fitted mirror-front wardrobes as well as TV and telephone points, with even the smallest details considered.
The apartments come with tiled shower rooms as standard, while some of them have separate en-suites and cloakrooms as well – all designed for ease of use and with the needs of customers in mind.
