Begin your exciting next chapter at Somerville House

Somerville House is a brand new, state-of-the-art retirement scheme which combines the best of modern design, services and facilities. 

All homes are spacious and airy and feature either a private balcony or terrace. You’ll be able to socialize, relax and take in long sunny days within the tranquil landscaped courtyard. Designed in mind for people who’re living independently, and maybe receiving some support, each home is adaptable too. This means your home can adjust with you and support you where and when your needs may change. For example, in some of the properties there are wider doorways and adapted kitchen with lowered work services through to the facilities in place for tracked or fixed ceiling hoists and step free access to the shared garden space.

The location of Somerville House itself is the best of both worlds as it’s tucked away in a quiet and peaceful location. However, you also have a supermarket placed close by as well as quick access to the main road leading into Hounslow with all its shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.  

What are the additional benefits for me to live at Somerville House?

One of the key benefits of living at Somerville House is having an 24/7 emergency response service provided and an additional Scheme Manager presence during the week. Your Scheme Manager will look after the day-to-day running of Somerville House and make sure that you’re happy and safe in your home. They’ll also provide you with advice and support to help you maintain your wellbeing and ensure that your home and the scheme is well maintained. As well as this, they’ll give you the opportunity to take part in social activities with your neighbours and learn new skills.

Other key features include:

  • A communal lounge. A perfect space to enjoy the company of your fellow residents and enjoy special events.
  • Two lifts.
  • Space outside each individual home to safely and securely store mobility scooters, meaning you can ride right up to your front door.
  • 24 hour access to a central control centre should you need any immediate help and/or support in each home.
