A recent poll by Financial Services company SunLife, asked 3000 over 50’s to name the top three things on their bucket list. The number 1 thing that people listed, was buying a new property, and this was closely followed by the goal of going on an extravagant holiday, and the third top thing was learning a new skill. Ideally situated in the North London suburb of Hadley Wood, Shanly Homes’ Highstone House at Manor Wood Gate offers prospective downsizers, and individuals within this age bracket, a distinct taste of luxury, without relinquishing their sense of independence.
Lawrence Henry, Partner at Statons in Hadley Wood, comments:
We have a great number of clients looking for family homes in the area at the moment, making this an excellent time for downsizers to maximise their collateral. These buyers are looking to move from central London to a cleaner, more rural location; which is exactly what we benefit from in Hadley Wood and the surrounding area. The Shanly Homes’ apartments at Manor Wood Gate are ideal for downsizers who love beautiful, modern interiors, generous rooms sizes, and classically designed buildings.
