The benefits of retirement villages with bungalows in Essex

As we look to retire, it’s important that the decisions we make now take the many possibilities of the future into consideration. Of-course, the here and now is important, but to truly live a retirement of stress-free simplicity, having a general plan for what’s to come instils peace of mind and only enhances overall quality of life.

Choosing retirement villages with bungalows in Essex ensures a community in which there is a clear emphasis on the safety and wellbeing of residents. Here at Burnham Waters, we believe that our spacious and adaptable retirement bungalows in Essex offer an option for every eventuality. 


Spacious and stair free


Choosing retirement villages with bungalows in Essex is a way to futureproof your quality of life. Bungalows themselves are a fantastic and versatile choice upon retirement. They’re spacious, easy to access and of course, there are no stairs. This completely eliminates the stress of having to move to a property that is step free later in life, or spending thousands on a safe stairlift and potential home renovation to accommodate your changing needs.

It may not be cause for concern right now, but as we get older, it’s no secret that our bodies can very quickly become less able. Thinking ahead and taking these precautions now will save you time, money and a lot of effort further down the line.


Every eventuality covered 


The beauty of retirement villages with bungalows in Essex, such as Burnham waters in Burnham on Crouch, is that every eventuality is catered for. As human beings, we never know what the future holds, but having the knowledge that your home has the possibility of adapting with you offers ultimate reassurance. As we retire, we should look for properties that have the ability to change with us and accommodate our needs, not the other way around.


Adaptable access


Bungalows offer ease of access like no other retirement property. Whether you need extra room for a walking frame, a wheelchair or mobility scooter, bungalows guarantee accessibility to all amenities within your home. What’s more is that everything within a luxury retirement community should be within walking distance of your home. 

At Burnham Waters in Essex, our facilities will be a stone’s throw away from your front door. This will ensure every resident is catered for and is able to live a fulfilling and social lifestyle within the community.

Accommodating a diverse age range from 55+, we have ensured that there will be amenities available for all our residents. Our community will offer a vast selection of activities and these will be available to use at your discretion. Take a look at what we offer on our lifestyle page here.


Burnham Waters: bungalows 


Perhaps you’ve have noticed that our properties look a lot more spacious than standard bungalows. Well, this is because they are! At Burnham Waters, our new build retirement bungalows are large in size compared to national house standards. In fact, our properties are built to M4(3) building regulations, making them and their surrounding areas fully wheelchair adaptable. 

Furthermore, our bungalow bathrooms are considerately designed as wet rooms to allow for maximum space and ease of access for all. Our innovative, luxury and spacious designs allow for optimum wheelchair and electric buggy parking throughout, as well as easy access cupboards and storage within the home. 

Additionally, remote video doorbells allow residents to see who is at the door. They can then unlock the door and allow visitors access to their home from the comfort of their sofa or bed, if needed. Family and friends are always welcome on site. All we ask is that you let us know who your nearest and dearest are, so that we know who is on the premises for security and emergency purposes.

The team have been so patient and understanding with my elderly parents. Although we haven’t been through a purchase yet we are hoping that will come. Nathan and his team have been accommodating, kind and very knowledgable throughout our dealings with them so far. Highly recommend.

Christina Sheilds

Having been met by Nathan we followed him onto the estate and was introduced to Jamie. His truly inspirational concept for a community development have left us wanting to be part of it. Loved the bungalow and once inside we able to see for ourselves the high spec and generous size rooms. Every aspect appears to have been thought about carefully and we are looking forward to seeing the 3 bedroom show home.

Mrs Moss

The property exceeded expectations. My wife and I appreciate how generous you were with your time with us. It’s a great, well thought out and designed development for the over 55’s.

Mr & Mrs Francis

Completely blown away with the spaciousness of the layout of the estate and the beautifully presented bungalow. I can’t thank you enough for the all the advice and information the team at the bungalow gave coupled with the help and genuine understanding and help with our particular issues.
