Show more "The sheltered housing scheme at Ashburton forms part of a large community close to pretty Putney Heath. The apartments are situated across six blocks arranged around attractive communal gardens within the wider Ashburton estate.

There are good local transport links to central Putney, Roehampton and into Central London and a national rail and tube station nearby. A local bus route specifically serves the estate.

They flats are designed to meet older people's needs, for example, plug points are higher, doors are wider and some flats have been adapted for wheelchair access or for people with mobility problems. They have the added security of a Warden Call alarm system in each flat that gives tenants access to support 24hrs a day and locally based sheltered housing officers Mon-Fri for reassurance and support."
