Retirement Made Simple at The Walled Gardens

A kitchen at The Walled Gardens St Andrews retirement apartments

With retirement, a lot of life’s worries can fade away. You now have the opportunity to spend as much time as you like, doing exactly what you want. This may even include the exciting prospect of moving somewhere new. All you need is to find that perfect place that suits your new lifestyle.

At The Walled Gardens, we want to make sure that when you join us you do so in the way that fits best around you. That’s why, beyond giving you the financial option of purchasing your new home under a Shared Ownership scheme, we offer a range of benefits and services to help you settle down and make your transition into retirement as smooth as possible.

Properties that suit you

At The Walled Gardens, you’re ideally placed to make the most of one of Europe’s most beautiful towns and can enjoy the new, coastal chapter of your life in some of our gorgeous apartments.

Boasting gorgeous open-plan living areas and featuring fitted Alno kitchens and sleek bathrooms, apartments are ready to move into with flooring, blinds, curtains and white goods included.

The luxurious properties at the Walled Gardens redefine what people think of as retirement housing, and with just nine apartments left, those looking to make a move to the development need to be quick in order to avoid disappointment.

Buying your retirement apartment

Our properties benefit from Shared Ownership, which is an increasingly appealing option for people wishing to downsize and release equity for their retirement.

By purchasing a 75% share and paying an occupancy charge on the rest, you can still enjoy the same rights and responsibilities as if you’d bought the whole property, but with more financial flexibility.

Our trusted partners at Thornton’s Solicitors and Rettie & Co. are experts in the property field so your purchase will be in safe hands and you will have the option to buy the further 25% after one year residence.

We also offer the Assisted Move package - designed specifically to help take away some of the worries and stress of moving to your new home. Key features include:

  • Reduced reservation fee of £350
  • Free market appraisal of your existing home
  • Expert help to sell your home within 90 days
  • Home Report costs reimbursed on completion

You only retire once, so why not take the time to consider a more luxurious home.


Although we want you to have as much independence as possible, we are also committed to taking care of our residents’ safety. Owners living at The Walled Gardens have unlimited access to Bield Response 24 – a dedicated 24-hour emergency response service which utilises the invaluable but discreet personal alarm units, daily contact service, out of hours repairs and a secure door access service.

For added security and peace of mind, all apartments are also fitted with a video entry phone and 3-point locking system.

Owner Services

Our retirement apartments have been designed to make day-to-day living as hassle-free as possible, without compromising on style.

The Owner Services team will make sure that you don’t have to worry about maintaining the grounds, the building’s insurance or repairs to the building – allowing you to fully enjoy your new surroundings.
