Dorset has always been a must-visit destination, the cool coastal resorts and bustling market towns brimming with history, make the area a firm family-holiday favourite. So, it’s no surprise when retirees look to relocate, Dorset is always a top pick!
The county’s well-established relocation reputation is thanks to its abundance of natural beauty and quaint character – and the golden stretch of coast in Christchurch is particularly popular. Sitting next to Bournemouth on the dramatic Dorset coast, where the Rivers Avon and Stour flow into the sea – it’s no wonder the home town of our Monterey development is the nation’ favourite!
However, with increased demand, comes increased house prices. In the last 5 years, prices have risen by a staggering 33% in Christchurch, causing many to disregard moving to Dorset before looking at all the options available to them. However, relocating to this beautiful area doesn’t have to come at a high cost.
For too long, downsizing in retirement has been viewed as expensive but we are aiming to turn this around. Our flexible ownership option gives retirees more financial freedom, as well as giving them the chance to move to luxurious homes in one of Britain’s best locations. Attracting residents from as far afield as Lincolnshire, central London and even France, Christchurch’s popularity has crossed international borders, creating a truly diverse community at Monterey.
Lilian and Roy Coughlin recently moved into Monterey and are thoroughly enjoying their new life in Christchurch.
Lilian comments; “We love having our grandkids to visit- there is so much to do nearby! Be it a stroll through the New Forest, a trip to the Priory for one of the weekly recitals, or a visit to the local theatre, we are really enjoying the quality of life in Christchurch, and as the community continues to grow at Monterey, I think it is only going to get better.”
The Monterey show home is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am – 5pm. For more details call our office on 01202 471461 or contact us online.
