Platinum Skies is continuing to challenge convention and raise the standards of retirement living.

Beautiful new homes start from as little as £99,500 and are available on a shared ownership basis, where the company is pioneering an accessible and affordable route to a dream retirement.

The scheme is backed by Government and regulated by Homes England who strive to make affordable homes accessible in the UK. You can purchase a share in one of their new homes, before paying a monthly rent and management fee.

This means you can afford a new retirement property at half the full-market value. Another benefit is that you can release equity from your old property to supplement your income.

They are the only retirement living provider in the UK to integrate age-friendly housing with finance solutions and lifestyle support services. Platinum Skies is aimed squarely at those over-55 who are fed-up with the usual isolated locations and high costs of average retirement developments.

Location is everything, with their retirement living sites offering Platinum Skies residents easy access to healthcare, transport and shopping amenities.


Platinum Skies affordable retirement sites are located in Poole, with a collection of apartments overlooking the beauty of Poole Harbour, Chapters a new retirement village in the heart of the historic city of Salisbury and Monterey in a prime location in Christchurch.

As with all Platinum Skies homes, there is an on-site lifestyle manager helping to build a dynamic community as well as offering support to each of the residents. Platinum Skies are committed to long-term partnerships with their buyers, whatever support or care may be required.

Taking the stress out of moving, the company can manage the sale of residents’ previous property and assist with packing, removals and unpacking. Handling every last detail, the committed after-care service can even assist with selling, donating or disposing of unwanted furniture, and provide a handyman to perfect any finishing touches in the new home – making a residents’ move as straightforward and stress-free as possible.

Platinum Skies also manage and maintain all elements of their developments, ensuring that the exceptionally high standards are maintained.

Chief Operating Officer of Platinum Skies, David Hines says: “Older people hesitate to move into retirement communities because it can feel as though they are surrendering their lifestyle rather than enhancing it in their later years. We believe maintaining control and independence is important to everyone, regardless of age. We aim to create an environment that feels less like retirement and more of a lifestyle choice.”

Platinum Skies’ flexible ownership scheme makes this lifestyle accessible and financially smart. Residents do not have to sacrifice their independence and the convenience of a bustling town centre for the comforts of serviced living.

Rental payments, service charge, ground rent and event fees apply. Purchasers must meet age and eligibility requirements. Platinum Skies is a Registered Social Landlord regulated by and registered with Homes England (No.4836).
