Retirement Properties in Sussex (West)

In the 16th century Horsham was considerably larger than its neighbour Crawley but the later was granted 'new town' status after the Second World War and expanded very quickly thereafter. Today the market town of Horsham still retains its old world charm with a traffic free centre and a range of shops, pubs, restaurants and all the facilities you might want in early retirement. There are several old buildings mixed in with the new and the Causeway is well known. A 16th century black-and-white house here contains the local museum. The famous 16th century charitable foundation of King Edward VI, Christ's Hospital, the Bluecoat School, moved to its present site opposite Cognatum's development, from the City of London in the early 1900's. The schools theatre is open to the public with a varied programme throughout the year.

The historic market town of Horsham has an excellent range of shopping facilities in addition to an arts centre with a theatre and cinema. Bluecoat Pond is easily accessible by road via the A23/A24 and M23/M25 and within a short walk is Christ’s Hospital rail station. The local bus service to Horsham runs past Bluecoat Pond and the bus stop is directly outside the development.

By special arrangement with Christ’s Hospital School, Bluecoat Pond residents may attend events at the school (i.e. Chapel Services, music and drama events, daily Band Parade) and may also walk around the outer campus for enjoyment and exercise. Click on an estate below to find out more:
