Exclusively designed for the over 60's, this stunning recently built development of one and two bedroom retirement apartments is located on Beulah Hill in Upper Norwood, one of the highest points in London, boasting spectacular views overlooking the City and the Surrey Hills all of which can be enjoyed from the amazing roof top terrace of Lewis House. Upper Norwood is just seven miles from the heart of London and is a great place to enjoy the countryside while still being within easy reach to the bustling Capital. Lewis House is a short bus ride away from Crystal Palace town centre, which offers an array of high street shops and independent stores, plenty of eateries, spectacular views overlooking London as well as an indoor second-hand market on Haynes Lane. Gipsy Hill train station is a short bus ride away which has excellent transport links into Central London. Once the home of the Great North Wood, Upper Norwood is still a very scenic area. Crystal Palace Park is nearby, a Victorian pleasure ground that has full-scale dinosaur sculptures, childrens play areas, a maze and a concert bowl. From the park, you can start the scenic Green Chain Walk, which takes you to the likes of Chislehurst, Erith, the Thames Barrier and Thamesmead.
Lewis House benefits from the communal lounge which overlooks the landscaped gardens, a perfect place to entertain visitors, socialise with neighbours or make new friends. There is a Guest suite perfect for when friends and family come to visit and a mobility scooter store and charging room. A dedicated House Manager is on site during office hours to provide help and support if required plus a 24 hour emergency call system, should assistance be required day or night. Peace of mind comes from a door entry system linked to each apartment via the TV, allowing you to see who's there before letting anyone in.
