It always helps to think a little about the future.

All our homes are on level blocks and designed to with open-plan living, wide hallways, minimal steps and adaptable bathrooms. To meet your needs now - and into the future!

#2: Privacy + Protection

Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home.

Privacy is a fundamental human right, and your security should be a non-negotiable! Angus Bristow ensures your privacy with private, fully-fenced back gardens, Amplimesh security doors and staff on-site.

You can live as privately as you wish, with the benefit of security and support throughout your everyday.

#3: High ceilings + High-end features

Your retirement should feel like a reward!

Choose a home that will be a source of pride (and pleasure) - something you can enjoy with friends, family and more. Remember: even if you're downsizing, a spacious home is a must. It will allow you to continue cooking and entertaining friends with ease!
