Ridgmount Apartments offered a unique advantage due to its modest size. With only twenty luxury apartments within the building, it provided a manageable small community where residents could truly get to know one another. This small-scale living environment was an essential factor for the couple, as they sought to build meaningful connections with their neighbours.
The buildings thoughtful design also took into consideration the future needs of its residents. Mr & Mrs Howell mentioned how the wide corridors and amenities (for example having two lifts) helped to make the apartments feel future-proofed, accommodating residents even as they may require additional support or assistance in the years to come.
Location played a significant role in their decision-making process. Ridgmount Apartments’ convenient position in Wimbledon offered a myriad of benefits. The short ten-minute walk to the station and nearby village provided easy access to essential services and transportation. The huge expanse of Wimbledon Common, perfect for nature walks and outdoor activities, was also within walking distance.

The couple were immediately captivated by the “wow factor” when they first entered the building. The bright, open, and well-planned interiors of the apartments created an immediate sense of home. The ample natural light pouring through the windows added to the overall appeal of the living spaces.
As retirees, the couple sought a home that required minimal maintenance, allowing them to focus on enjoying their newfound freedom. Ridgmount Apartments fulfilled this, being a relatively new building with low upkeep demands. The communal garden, lovingly cared for by others, provided them the beauty of nature without the burden of gardening chores. Another asset that the couple appreciated was the secure underground car park with each apartment having its own allocated parking space.
Another aspect that cemented their decision was the presence of active community engagement. Ridgmount Apartments fostered a friendly environment where residents regularly organised events, activities, and clubs themselves. There is a nearby bridge club in Wimbledon (just one bus stop away) as well as a history club and reading group within Ridgmount. Though there isn’t an official art club, there is a resident artist, and some informal art gatherings that occasionally take place.
