The Elms – Far From a Retirement Home!

Ever wondered what Retirement Home Living is all about? Well here at The Elms, we can’t really give you the answer to that! The simple answer as to why is because The Elms is not a retirement home! We are a dedicated retirement village – where over 50s can live independently and purchase a home just like any other. What makes us different is that we have simply set up a retirement village for people over 50 years old – which is far from the traditional retirement home philosophy!

And this is the story of how The Elms has come to be….

Back in the 1970’s, the Kinch Group acquired a portion of land in Lincolnshire with the vision of building homes on this plot to be sold independently. The vision was then refined, with the intent of making this space a dedicated retirement community, where homes are sold to those over 50 years old – not the traditional retirement home living type property, but an actual property that you completely own. And live independently through.

From the 80s to today!

And with this in mind… The Elms was born…

The idea was never to build a retirement home where senior people could simply see out the remaining years of their life. The plan was to build independent homes where those over 50 could purchase the homes and be amongst like-minded people. This is why the Torksey Lock area was chosen as the destination area, as it has easy access to the things that we need within everyday life, and is located in a peaceful Lincolnshire location.

And this is why our properties are in such high demand…

At the moment, we are at capacity with our properties in terms of plots. So there is no space now to purchase any plots. However, properties do become readily available and you can also check local property sites to see which of the properties the residents have listed for sale. Click to view our Available Properties.

The Elms through the years

So why do people choose to move to a dedicated retirement area…

So lets confirm, we are not a retirement home and residents here at The Elms do not live the quote ‘retirement home living’ lifestyle.

When our residents moved here, it was with the intention to enjoy the more active years of their life. Not to simply let life slip them by. The concept of a dedicated retired area is not a new one.

However, it is one that is now quickly becoming an option for many people over 50 and retirees in general. As financially, this can be an excellent chance for you to free up some equity and really enjoy these stages of your life.
