People make a place
To live on a Cognatum estate is to live within a friendly and welcoming community of likeminded people with a wide variety of interests. The independent nature of the properties ensures personal space and privacy, while the estate setting means that good company is right on your doorstep if you desire. The extensive and beautiful grounds, landscaped to create the relaxed atmosphere of a country-house garden, also offer a natural environment in which to meet and socialise.
Surround yourself with beauty and history
In addition to their own handsome architecture and lovely grounds, Cognatum estates benefit from being situated in some of England’s most beautiful counties. Opportunities to enjoy the countryside are abundant, local villages make for tranquil and relaxing days out and you will often find a variety of splendid national heritage and cultural sites in the surrounding area. The proximity to local towns also provides easy access to road, rail and air transport links for when you want to explore further afield.
Lock up and leave
Your home is in safe hands
Living on a Cognatum estate makes it easy to enjoy the freedom retirement brings. Whether you’re taking short trips to visit family and friends or spending extended time abroad, you can feel safe in the knowledge that your home is secure and well looked after by the estate manager.
Stylish and spacious
Downsizing doesn’t mean thinking small
Downsizing with Cognatum means rooms that are smaller in number, not in size. Our properties are elegant, comfortable and generously proportioned, allowing plenty of space for the furniture and long-treasured possessions that will make the house your home. Many properties also enjoy conservatories, roof terraces, or balconies, as well as benefitting from private garages and parking.
Life on the doorstep
Stay close to the buzz
All Cognatum estates are located in enviable spots within vibrant market towns and villages, so that the shops and services you need are only a short walk away. Local towns are also home to a range of cafés, restaurants, museums and galleries, and the security and convenience of owning a Cognatum property frees up time to not only continue enjoying existing hobbies and interests but also discover new ones.
The time is now
An investment to be enjoyed
The move to a Cognatum property brings freedom from many of the headaches and hassles of ordinary home ownership, enabling you to lead a comfortable and active life in your own home. Downsizing to one of our properties represents a wise investment decision too, releasing capital while maintaining the quality of your lifestyle in a sought-after location.
